Republican Governor sounds off on Trump’s riot response, says it’s ‘not helpful’

Republican Governor of Maryland Larry Hogan betrayed President Trump in a CNN interview on Sunday, attacking the way Trump has responded to the violent protests breaking out all over the nation. 

“I think one of the most important things that a leader can do right now, and I went through this in 2015 during the riots in Baltimore, one of my primary focuses was to try to lower the temperature,” Hogan told host Jake Tapper. 

Amid the devastating violence perpetrated by rioters across the nation, Trump tweeted that the “THUGS” initiating the violence were “dishonoring the memory of George Floyd.”

Hogan criticized the tweet, saying that it’s “not helpful,” continuing to say that “it’s not lowering the temperature. It’s sort of continuing to escalate the rhetoric. I think it’s just the opposite of the message that should have been coming out of the White House.

Hogan pointed to his experience with the 2015 Baltimore riots, saying that “our theory was peace through strength,” crowing that officials “successfully” stopped the localized violence in “a few hours.”

Fox News reported on Saturday that 5,000 National Guard troops have been deployed across 15 states in response to the rapidly escalating violence that broke out earlier this week. Protests are said to be planned for the next several weeks.

Trump issued a statement on Saturday calling for justice for George Floyd while also condemning the out-of-control riots. Floyd’s death “filled America all over the country with horror, anger and grief,” Trump said, remarking that he had met with Floyd’s family to express “the sorrow of our entire nation for their loss.”

“I stand before you as a friend and ally of every American seeking justice and peace,” Trump continued, continuing on to call for an end to the violence. “What we are seeing on the streets of our cities has nothing to do with justice or peace. The memory of Floyd is being dishonored by rioters, looters, and anarchists.”

It’s ironic that most of the violent protests with destruction are in cities with democratic leaders. Is this just a coincidence or a telling story with our country’s problems??

I’m not sure why you say that it is ironic…..it is that way because while democrats talk ‘a good game’, they are just full of hot air. Democrat ideas do not work. They delusionally think that they are smarter than anyone else….but alas, everything fails that democrats try because their thinking is not based on reality, it is based on ideology. That always fails because their ideology doesn’t work. It has been unsuccessfully tried around the world…..and it fails every time it is tried.

Remember people this is about Soros and Obama. There goal is to pit blacks against Trump. After Biden that stupid comment here comes riots.They are not protesters they are thugs. This is why Trump is calling Antifa Domestic Terror Group. We must win in November this is exactly what the left wants . No police and open borders they’ve said it for 4 years. If Biden wins this country is going to look like this everyday. Remember the Democrats always use the phrase never let a crisis go to waste. They know there in trouble with people because Trump has done more than any President for blacks people. Let me clarify, I am not a racist I’m a Christian but these mobs are scary.

HOGAN SHOULD KNOW ALL THE FACTS BEFORE SPEAKING. THE PROTEST WOULD HAVE NOT BEEN THAT BAD IF IT WEREN’T FOR OUTSIDERS. THEY SHOULD BE ARRESTED AND PUT IN FEDERAL PRISON.

The MD gov must be a die-hard RINO …!!! Trump hadn’t said anything until last night and what he said was entirely appropriate. If he hadn’t said anything, he would’ve been accused of being insensitive by avoiding the subject. Good that he found out the gov can’t be counted on for support, and he obviously doesn’t have a problem with Antifa, or GS.

Sounds of past paid communist thugs to create rioting and discontent. Keep an eye on the amount of problems and how well organized the rioters are. Now the mayor’s and governors are trying to deny the number of out of state rioters. Interesting, also many of the rioters are college age; also we know that Chinese agents are involved on college campuses.

I appears you may be correct with Soros paying for protest, rioting and looting. How about Soros paying for these shop owners to rebuild the business and restock their merchandise? How about Soros paying these store owners loss wages…. do you think Soros will do anything of the sort? Freedom of Speech doesn’t mean one can destroy someone’s property, cause injury to others by assault, rioting, looting, arson, etc.

We did not elect President Trump because he was touchy-feely. He says it how it is. I would rather have honesty then trying to be fake in his evaluation of the situation. Yes, it was murder and he acknowledges that and it was wrong and will be dealt with but he also points out the obvious. Mobs are hurting the situation by fires, burning property, etc that has nothing to do with Mr. Floyd’s death. My sympathy and prayers go out to the Floyd family.

Again, well said. The real issue here is that the demonstrators, mostly black, are destroying businesses that used to cater to other blacks. Much like the Rodney King affair in LA a few years back. The blacks tried to destroy the town. What they did was destroy a lot of businesses owned by other blacks and minorities. So, who did they hurt the most—other blacks and minorities.

I think President Trump’s reply about the Thugs ruining the memory of George Floyd was just perfect. As I recall, President Obama used the same word in the riot when he was President. The Maryland Governor is being a hypocrite just playing to his liberal people in Maryland. He is dead wrong.

I don’t think the ones destroying our cities deserve sympathy or should be allowed to continue their destructive activities.
They are violent and should stop and go home or be stopped by force.
The ones that are arrested should have to pay their share to rebuild and repay what they have destroyed.
I am in my home abiding by the law of the land and don’t feel my taxes should pay to rebuild a city I don’t live in and had no part of destroying!
I pray for George’s family and pray they get the justice they deserve.

President Trump specifically used the term “thugs” as he was repeating the EXACT terminology Obama used in either the Baltimore or Fergusion riots which he openly supported and in which he maligned police officers! His statement was to the effect “these THUGS” aren’t acceptable (although Obama then went on criticizing the police and later set up a nation wide program to “soften ” and change the “culture” of police departments across the country!
Just do search for “Obama” and the word “thugs”…
President Trump usually has a reason for terminology he uses… mostly to raise awareness of past situations in country….so as to get people to investigate and wake up about them, but msm usually just repeat and criticize anything Trump says anyway! When they do so it should be a good signal for everyone to look for connections and why Trump might have said what he did!

Gary White (@guest_1002589)

I stand with the President. This criminal behavior cannot be tolerated. Protesters are welcome to express their positions, but are not free to riot, steal, kill and destroy the property and livelihoods of others—whether they’re Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, or Indian. This is the work of Satan and those who are moved to follow the practices of their father. Jesus is NOT pleased, but the Devil is. Who are you living for? What is your motive, and would you appreciate someone destroying your livelihood and property?

Moreover, the MN Police Officer was wrong to maintain his knee on the side of George’s neck. From published circumstantial evidence, the officer may not have directly killed George. It appears the bad store transaction, the police response, and George’s preexisting physical conditions, may have set into motion his respiratory issue prior to being placed on the pavement. Everyone needs to wait and see what the autopsy tells us.

Those who don’t want TRUTH will continue to do wrong at the expense of others. Those who seek to do what’s RIGHT will seek to do what is BEST George’s family, community, and for our nation.

Obummer was out to destroy America he hated America and it’s people!! President Trump is 100% right. He is out to clean up All this crap the tge Socialists Democrat’s are causing. Unless they are stopped this will continue. I will vote for President Trump also. Man I hate to say this but if anyone can support the Republicans with just $10 before the end of this day please do it.

Don’t get your panties in a knot over Trumps comments. He cares about the man who was killed and is furious about it. He also will try to put a stop to the rioting. So that is my opinion.

This is a very sad situation for our country. I appreciate Gov. Hogan’s desire for deescalating the riots across the country, however, as a republican supporter it would have been best addressed with President Trump directly vs. the media. With that said, riots are not a solution or justification for the death of an innocent George Floyd. It is right to call this an act of terrorism and to denounce it. George Soros stated “Destroying America will be the final culmination to his life’s work. Then: Soros even said in an interview that the way he would do it was through the black communities, because he feels they are the “easiest to get riled up”. We must overcome this corruption and support our country! I believe democrat politicians are also funded by Soro’s. Democrats have done NOTHING for this country for this country except abuse their position to destroy President Trump. ALL of this is their continued plan……incensed by greed & power. God will prevail! Vengeance is mine says the Lord, I will repay! Choose you this day whom you will serve.
