    Honestly it seems whatever aid and speech writer trump uses tried very hard to do their job and whoever tried to impress upon trump to sticking to the speech did better then normal. But you can see where he slips from the Canned remarks. Let’s be blunt. Trump is threatening to send our armed forces to attack protestors who the vast majority are trying to protest peacefully. With some hot bloods who according to current information are young whites are trying to push into rioting. Why am I remembering what happened to Martin Luther King Jr? When you have a stressed out group protesting police brutality the worst thing you can do is react with violent action. Pushing violent action then will only cause worse problems and riots from the small number of individuals who feel that the only solution is to meet violence with violence. And in that case there is a lot of friendly fire on people who were peaceful but just ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time and got caught up in panic. This is the time for diplomacy. Not shoot people with tear gas and rubber bullets for a photo op. And hopefully we would have learned a few things since the last time the straw broke the camel’s back where the so called enlightened police sent attack dogs and pounded protestors with fire hoses spay.
