Barack Obama Insinuates The Minneapolis Riots Is The “New Normal”.
Right after Minnesota Police arrested a CNN reporter on air, Minneapolis Mayor encourages protesters to wear a mask while in demonstration.
Former President Barack Obama who is currently under investigation from Attorney General William Barr released his statement on George Floyd’s death.
Former President Barack Obama finally broke his silence on the Minneapolis tragedy and issued a puzzling statement.
Obama didn’t take any shots at Donald Trump, at least in any obvious way, but he did call for a “new normal” whatever that means.
One thing he did not do is mention the riots, but insinuated it’s the “new normal”.

According to CNN
“It can’t be ‘normal.’ If we want our children to grow up in a nation that lives up to its highest ideals, we can and must be better,” Obama said in a statement, as protests have erupted across the country.
He said it will mainly fall on officials in Minnesota to ensure Floyd’s death is fully investigated “and that justice is ultimately done.”
“But it falls on all of us, regardless of our race or station — including the majority of men and women in law enforcement who take pride in doing their tough job the right way, every day — to work together to create a ‘new normal’ in which the legacy of bigotry and unequal treatment no longer infects our institutions or our hearts,” Obama continued.
George Floyd, 46, died after his arrest on Monday. A video surfaced afterward showing Floyd handcuffed and on the ground saying, “I can’t breathe,” as a white police officer holds him down with his knee on Floyd’s neck.
Four Minneapolis police officers involved in Floyd’s death were fired, but Floyd’s family wants them to be charged with murder.
