Taylor Swift lashes out at Trump, celebrities say ‘Enough is Enough’ on George Floyd’s death

United States President Donald Trump's tweet on the death of George Floyd and the wave of protests has drawn sharp criticism from people all over the world.

While the world is battling the coronavirus pandemic, another tragedy has hit the United States of America. The brutal death of an unarmed African American at the hand of a white cop has created a wave of protests all over the country. This blatant act of racism and violence is met by harsh protests from residents of  Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The protest turned violent when the section of MPD’s 3rd Precinct building was set on fire by the people. The violence drew sharp criticism from President Donald Trump in a series of tweets.

Reacting to the protests, Donald Trump tweeted, “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. I just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!”

The nature and insensitivity of Trump’s tweet left Americans enraged and appalled. Twitter also red marked the President’s tweet for inciting violence which is against their platform’s policy.

Responding to Donald Trump’s statement in strong words, Taylor wrote,  “After stoking the fires of white supremacy and racism your entire presidency, you have the nerve to feign moral superiority before threatening violence? ‘When the looting starts the shooting starts’??? We will vote you out in November. @realdonaldtrump.”

Celebrities including Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Justin Bieber, Cardi B, Kim Kadarshian, and many more have taken to social media to express their outrage over the death of yet another innocent black American.

George Floyd was an African American resident of the United States who died after a white
cop pinned his knee on his throat for over 9 minutes. His last words “I Can’t Breathe” have become a slogan of outrage and protests all over the United States.
