George Floyd’s Brother Says Trump Was Dismissive On Condolence Call

A condolence call from President Donald Trump wound up discouraging George Floyd’s brother, who stated Trump “didn’t offer [him] the chance to even speak.”

“It hurt me,” Philonise Floyd stated in an interview Saturday on MSNBC. Floyd’s brother George passed away Monday throughout an arrest by white policeman in Minneapolis. He was 46.

The call with Trump was “so fast,” Floyd informed the Rev. Al Sharpton on “Politics Nation.”

“He didn’t give me the opportunity to even speak,” Floyd stated, as his kid Brandon sat next to him. “It was hard. I was trying to talk to him, but he just kept, like, pushing me off, like: ‘I don’t want to hear what you’re talking about.’”

Floyd stated: “I just told him I want justice. I said that I couldn’t believe that they committed a modern-day lynching in broad daylight. I can’t stand for that. I can’t. And it hurt me.”

George Floyd, who was Black, passed away after law enforcement officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on his neck for numerous minutes while an unarmed Floyd was limited and hung on the ground. Chauvin has actually been detained and charged with third-degree murder and second- degree murder. The other 3 officers associated with the arrest were fired, however stay complimentary.

“They all need to be convicted of first-degree murder and given the death penalty,” Philonise Floyd informed Sharpton. “They didn’t appreciate what they wished to make with my brother. He wasn’t an individual to them. He was residue, he was absolutely nothing[to them] I can picture how lots of people they did like that.”

Floyd ended up being psychological later on in the interview. “I just don’t understand, man,” he informed Sharpton tearfully. “Why we gotta go through this? Why we gotta have all this pain, man? I love my brother. I’m never going to see him again.”
