House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) talked about the protests across the United States following the death of George Floyd while in police custody. During the virtual conversation with the Washington Post, the congressman said he had not seen “anything like this since, maybe, Emmett Till,” referring to the 1955 lynching of the 14-year-old African American child in Mississippi. Mr. Clyburn also criticized President Trump’s visit to St. John Paul II shrine during the protests, saying “this president seems to think that religion is some kind of prop to further his political interests.” close
