Die whole world could hear the pop in the Background, when US President Donald Trump on Monday in the rose garden of the White house to the citizens of the country. While Trump spoke of standing on the side of peaceful protesters, was disbanded a Protest in front of his office with tear gas and rubber bullets – to make room for trump’s next PR-action.

After his speech, the President of delivery, accompanied, among others, by Minister of justice, Bill Barr, in his press spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany and his daughter, Ivanka, through the cleared area to the nearby St. John’s Church, which had been damaged on the eve of the protesters.
Trump held a Bible, and spoke of the United States is the “greatest Nation in the world”. Previously, he had threatened throughout the country by the military against violent protesters to use.
For this speech, and his action in front of the Church, it rained in the result of criticism. Bishop Mariann E. Budde, the Church chairs, said on CNN she was outraged”. He has not prayed. He didn’t mention George Floyd, not even the pain of people who suffer from this racism for hundreds of years. We need a President who can unite and heal. He has done the opposite, and we now need to sweep up some of the pieces that he left behind in order.“
“Antithesis to Jesus’ Teachings”
Trumps message is the “antithesis of Jesus’ Teachings,” says Budde was. “We disassociate from the diocese of Washington, DC, us, from the incendiary language of the President. He misused the sacred symbols to justify things that contradict everything we stand for as a Church.“ Budde criticized Trump in the past for cuts in the social system, and the planned construction of a wall on the border to Mexico.
Counterpart, Greg Brewer, Bishop of Central Florida, tweeted: “This is blasphemy in real-time.” Both of these bishops belong to the Episcopal Church, which is part of the Anglican Church, and as liberal applies.

Because they bring young women and men in danger. It is not to dominate, to conquer hearts and minds. We need a leader. This is not Hollywood!“
“Who’s the Gangster?”
Similar words came on Monday afternoon, politicians of the Democratic party. Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York, accused Trump, to make the protests a “Reality TV Show. He has used the army to stop peaceful protests, so he could take photos of, as he runs to a Church. Is to make ‘America great again?’ I don’t think.“
Presidential candidate Joe Biden wrote on Twitter: “He’s using the American military against Americans. He makes peaceful protesters with tear gas and rubber bullets firing. For a photo. We must defeat him, for our children.“
Even more CNN presenter Anderson Cooper, who turned directly to Trump, was: “you talk of gangsters? Who’s the Gangster? You are a would-be war President hiding in a Bunker.“
