“Do you seriously wonder, Mr. President, why this is the first time in decades that America has seen this level of violence? It’s you who have created the hate and division.”

61% to 35%
A new Washington Post-Schar School poll finds President Trump receives negative marks for his handling of the protests over George Floyd’s death, with 61% saying they disapprove and 35% saying they approve. Much of the opposition to Trump is vehement, as 47% of Americans say they strongly disapprove of the way the president has responded to the protests. Also important: 69% say the killing of Floyd represents a broader problem within law enforcement.
