Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Democrats, Republicans Urge Trump To Stop His Incendiary Rhetoric As Protests Rage”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

As civil unrest over the death of George Floyd and other Black victims of police brutality continued to rock cities across the U.S., lawmakers and leaders implored President Donald Trump on Sunday to cease his inflammatory commentary.

Democrats and some Republicans expressed concern over Trump’s rhetoric, with some saying his comments were fueling violence and exacerbating the tense situation.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told ABC’s “This Week” that she is largely ignoring Trump’s statements, which she said serve as “bait” to divert from the root issues that prompted the protests.

“I think to take his bait time and time again is just a gift to him because he always wants to divert attention from what the cause of the response was,” she said.

“I’m not paying too much attention to what the president says,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Trump tweets.“I think to take his bait time and time again is just a gift to him because he always wants to divert attention from what the cause of the response was.” https://t.co/sVerbxGgdM pic.twitter.com/i6302lt9Yd
