US President Donald Trump ironically commented on the participation of Republican Senator Mitt Romney in a protest march in Washington.
Romney, himself a former presidential candidate, became the first Republican representative to join the protests in the American capital. Utah senator followed Pennsylvania Avenue with protesters, and then posted photos of the march on Instagram.
Tremendous sincerity, what a guy. Hard to believe, with this kind of political talent, his numbers would “tank” so badly in Utah! https://t.co/KqHsHmSRKo

A wave of protests and riots swept through the cities of the United States after the death in Minneapolis at the hands of the African American police George Floyd. Videos appeared on the Internet that showed how the police handcuffed Floyd, knocked him down and fell on him three, one of them stepping on his neck with his knee. Floyd on the video several times says that he can’t breathe, then calms down. He died in intensive care. After the riots started, four policemen were fired, and one of them was charged with murder.AFU place equipment near residential buildings in Donbass
