Fox News host Harris Faulkner gave President Donald Trump every opportunity to calm tensions over racist police brutality during an interview in Dallas that aired, in part, Friday afternoon. He either had no interest in doing so or was ultimately incapable.
Faulkner began her interview by asking Trump if he was the right president to “unite all of us, given everything that’s happening right now.”
“Well, I certainly think so and I certainly hope so,” Trump replied. He proceeded to call the “riots” over the police killing of George Floyd “unnecessary,” blaming mayors and governors for failing to keep things under control. “You can call them protesters, you can call them riots, there were different nights, different things,” he said.
