Did Donald Trump instigate a riot? He called for people to come protest. Some of them came to riot. Is he responsible for that? Are the people who organized protests against George Floyd’s murder responsible for the rioters, arsonists and looters who showed up as well?
Nowhere did Trump tell people to come and be violent. If he had, believe me, he would have been impeached long before the actual event. No way would Nancy Pelosi have let that go. The rioters are responsible for the riot. The Floyd protest organizers, Donald Trump, they are not responsible.
