WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump invoked George Floyd’s name as he delivered remarks trumpeting the latest unemployment numbers, which showed the U.S. economy unexpectedly adding 2.5 million jobs last month.

Trump mentioned equal justice under the law means everyone needs to receive fair treatment. He referenced Floyd, whose death in police custody has sparked protests across the world.

Trump says, “Hopefully George is looking down right now and saying this is a great thing that’s happening for our country,” adding: “This is a great day for him. It’s a great day for everybody.”

Trump is also calling an improving economy “the greatest thing that can happen for race relations” and the African American community.

  1. Can anyone explain what Trump meant when he said ” “Hopefully George is looking down right now and saying this is a great thing that’s happening for our country,” adding: “This is a great day for him.”
    I can’t understand how it’s a great day for the deceased man.

  2. Trump has been totally repudiated by his own top generals and Sec of Defense and by Drudge, Savage, and most conservatives. He is deranged for mentioning murdered-by-cops George Floyd. Disgracia!

  3. Invoke
    Floyd was not a good man. Did you check out his rap sheet? In prison 5 times. Aimed a loaded gun at a pregnant women’s stomach. High on fentanyl and methamphetamine at time of arrest.

    He is not an upstanding citizen and he is not a martyr for the black community.

    Invoke? smdh
