“President Donald Trump has realized that these riots have become a national-level threat to the safety and security of the American people. They are kicking at the load-bearing walls of our society. Trump knows it’s time for action. …

That so many of the people choose to conflate these terms is evidence of their dishonesty and cowardice in this tense moment.”
