Protests have erupted across the United States in the wake of the police murder of black man George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As days have gone on, an increasing number of outside agitators have emerged in the mix — on Saturday, Minnesota authorities reported that some 80 percent of people who’d been arrested the previous night were from out of state. There have been reports of white supremacists and similarly minded radicals among those who’ve taken advantage of the situation, but this Saturday, President Donald Trump rushed to Twitter with the dubious at best proclamation that he supposedly knows that it’s the “Radical Left” who are behind the tumult. If questioned, could he even define what “radical left” means, or is he just saying what he thinks sounds best for him politically?

He tweeted:

‘It’s ANTIFA and the Radical Left. Don’t lay the blame on others!’

In fact, NBC has reported that Minnesota Governor Tim Walz (D) noted that “he is aware of unconfirmed reports that gangs of white supremacists are taking advantage of the anarchy unfolding in Minneapolis to create more chaos.” Why does Trump care to defend right-wingers in the first place? Does he think that white supremacists, who have been accused of involvement in rioting, are actually great people who shouldn’t have their supposedly good names tarnished? In fact, that’s the exact perspective he’s laid out in the past — after neo-Nazi rioting in Charlottesville, Virginia, Trump insisted that “very fine people” were among the demonstrators.

And now, he’s yet to inspire any kind of systematic confidence in his leadership. Instead, he has stuck to essentially hiding out in the White House and tweeting random threats at random times of day.
