NIRVANA bassist Krist Novoselic has praised Donald Trump for “strong and direct” law and order speech after U.S. President made his first public comments on the death of George Floyd and the subsequent protests filling city streets.
“Wow!!! I know many of you can’t stand him, however, Trump knocked it out of the park with this speech,” Novoselic wrote on his Facebook profile, which has since been made private and not accessible to the general public. He also deleted his Twitter account.
He continued: “Social media and television are looping images of societal breakdown. I agree, the president should not be sending troops into states — and he legally might not be able to anyway – nevertheless, his tone in this speech is strong and direct.”
“I have been watching the images in the media and thinking about how polarised our country is,” Krist added. “I mean, even wearing medical masks in public can be seen as a political statement! The violence (and not the protests) appear as a leftist insurrection. Imagine if so-called “patriot militias” were raising this kind of hell? If this were the case, left-wing people would welcome federal intervention.
“Most Americans want peace in their communities and President Trump spoke to this desire. Never mind the legal details that few understand — Trump said he would stop the violence and this speaks to many.”
