Donald Trump once again has no public events on his schedule after he briefly came out of hiding, at one point in the White House bunker, to gas some protesters. Trump is hiding from the crisis while leaders like Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Speaker Pelosi are showing the protesters with actions that they stand with them.
The response to the George Floyd murder has painted the difference in leadership between the two parties in the starkest of terms. Trump threatens violence, while Democrats are using empathy and understanding to bring the country together.
Speaker Pelosi has shown more leadership and concern with one visit to a protest than Trump has during his entire presidency.
The real leaders are stepping up, as Donald Trump remains hidden in the White House.
