Most Americans Disapprove Of Trump's Response To ProtestsWochIt Media
A large majority of Americans sympathize with the mass protests sweeping the nation. 64% of American adults were “sympathetic to people who are out protesting right now". According to a Reuters poll, most Americans also disapprove of President Trump’s response to the unrest. More than 55% of Americans said they disapprove of Trump’s handling of the protests. Even among Republicans, only 67% said they approved of the way Trump has handled the crisis. The protests began last week when a Minneapolis police officer was videotaped kneeling on the neck of a man. Officer Derek Chauvin kneeled on the neck of 46-year-old George Floyd for nearly nine minutes. Floyd later died of injuries sustained as a result of the encounter with Chauvin.
