Democratic Presidential candidate, Joe Biden, has slammed US President, Donald Trump, for using American Military against the American people.
Odunews.com had earlier reported that Trump threatened to order an army crackdown on sweeping civil unrest gripping the United States over the death of George Floyd, an unarmed black man killed by the Police.
“He tear-gassed peaceful protesters and fired rubber bullets. For a photo,” Biden tweeted, referring to Trump’s decision to use law enforcement — including military police — to clear protesters from in front of the White House so he could pose for photographs at a riot-damaged church nearby.
“For our children, for the very soul of our country, we must defeat him,” Biden said.
Biden also announced in a campaign statement he would speak Tuesday morning in Philadelphia “on the civil unrest facing communities across America.”
The speech will be just his third public appearance since the COVID-19 pandemic began in mid-March.
After facing accusations that he was out of touch by spending too much time at home in virus lockdown, the 77-year-old Biden seems to have gotten another wind and is ready to step up the pace of his campaign as restrictions relax.
