Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), joined by his Democratic colleagues Senators Cory Booker (NJ), Kamala Harris (CA), and Tammy Duckworth (IL), forcefully criticized President Trump’s actions the previous day in a news conference on Capitol Hill. The Democrats accused the president of “fanning the flames” amid nationwide civil unrest following the death of George Floyd in the custody of the Minneapolis Police Department. They said President Trump violated the constitutional right to peacefully assemble and protest when federal police used tear gas and flash bangs to clear peaceful protesters away from a park outside the White House so the president could participate in a photo-op in front of the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church, which had been damaged by rioters the night before. Senator Schumer said he would be bringing a unanimous consent resolution to the Senate floor to condemn the president’s actions. close
