A Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder has revealed that the group will not be only pushing for a “reinvestment into Black communities,” but additionally to “get Trump out” of the White House. During an appearance on CNN’s ‘The Lead with Jake Tapper’, writer, activist, and BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors was asked how Democratic presumptive nominee Joe Biden fared against President Donald Trump in reference to issues that have been essential to the BLM movement.
“Hands down Trump not only needs to not be in office in November but he should resign now,” Cullors replied. “Trump needs to be out of office. He is not fit for office.”
“And so what we are going to push for is a move to get Trump out while we’re also going to continue to push and pressure Vice President Joe Biden around his policies and relationship to policing and criminalization,” she continued. “That’s going to be important.”
“But our goal is to get Trump out,” she stressed.

According to Cullors, the coast-to-coast protests over the death of George Floyd confirmed that the country is undergoing “a cultural shift.”
“And it’s not just hearts and attitudes changing,” she said. “We’re also seeing entire police departments transforming. We’re seeing city councils, county board supervisors, governors, the national government trying to have a much more difficult and promising conversation around re-imagining public safety. I think that’s profound.”
After everything President Trump has done for the black community over the last three and a half year, things like the lowest unemployment rate for black workers ever recorded, prison reform giving black prisoners a second chance at life after Joe Biden’s 1994 crime bill put them away with long prison sentences for non-violent crimes, he not only increased grants for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU), but he added the increases to the budget to assure they would always come, for BLM to claim their goal is getting rid of Trump proves they don’t care about black lives. They’re Marxists and they want to tear down the American system and replace it with a Marxian heaven on earth. Black people not affiliated with BLM need to realize that BLM is against them as well.
This comes after reports that BLM protesters toppled the statue of Confederate Brigadier General Albert Pike at Judiciary Square in DC and set it on fire. An author, poet, and prominent member of the Freemasons, Pike was said to be a strong proponent of slavery. Around 80 to 100 people were gathered there around 11 pm on Friday, June 19.
It’s okay to want to have a statue of a Confederate general removed, but to topple it is uncivilized. There are procedures you can go through to have it removed legally, but BLM and other terrorists aren’t interested in civility. And, don’t forget that it was Democrats who erected those statues and who kept them around for all these years. The matter should be taken up with the Democratic Party and not taken out on all of America. The fact that the rioters are taking it out on American confirms it’s not about getting to the root of racism. They hate America, plain and simple.
President Donald Trump took to social media and tweeted about the incident.
“The DC Police are not doing their job as they watch a statue be ripped down & burn. These people should be immediately arrested. A disgrace to our Country! @MayorBowser.”
