Twitter disables Trump campaign's George Floyd video tribute

"There is so much more work to be done". The comments in question came immediately after Trump discussed the role of the National Guard in limiting the damage caused by riots and looting, contrasting places like Minnesota, where the National Guard was active, with NY. He said the apparently improving economy was "the greatest thing that can happen for race relations" and the African American community. Nonfarm payrolls rose after a record plunge of slightly under 20.7 million in April.

President Donald Trump veered from touting positive jobs numbers at an economic bill signing to address the growing racial unrest in the United States, among many other topics, in a 40-minute, ad-libbed address at the Rose Garden.

Ken Farnaso, Trump campaign's deputy press secretary, said it was "unsurprisingly sad" that Twitter had joined the mainstream media in censoring the President's message.

"The president who takes no responsibility for costing millions and millions of Americans their jobs deserves no credit when a fraction of them return", Biden said.

"George Floyd's last words, 'I can't breathe". The video begins with the president's voice speaking over several pictures of Floyd and video of protests in response to his death.

"Hopefully George is looking down right now and saying this is a great thing that's happening for our country", Trump said in an apparent reference to unspecified improvements in equality under the law. "A great day for him, a great day for everybody. It's a great day for everybody". "It's a great day for terms of equality".

Biden called the comments "despicable".

A raft of public polls showed Trump trailing presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden nationally and in some of the battleground states where the November 3 election will be decided.

Yamiche Alcindor, White House correspondent for PBS NewsHour, asked him about figures showing that unemployment for black Americans and Asian-Americans went up in May.
