George Floyd appeared on MSNBC on Saturday where he talked about a phone call he received from Donald Trump. According to Philonise Floyd, Trump did not even offer him an opportunity to talk and the conversation was brief.
Floyd was interviewed by the Rev. Al Sharpton on “Politics Nation.”
“They all need to be convicted of first-degree murder and given the death penalty,” Floyd said of the police officers who killed his brother.
“What was the conversation with President Trump like?” Sharpton asked.
“It was so fast,” Floyd answered.
“He didn’t give me an opportunity to even speak. It was hard, I was trying to talk to him, but he just kept like pushing me off, like ‘I don’t want to hear what you’re talking about.’ And I just told him I want justice. I said that I couldn’t believe they committed a modern-day lynching in broad daylight.”
“I can’t stand for that, I can’t — and it hurt me,” he revealed.
“I just don’t understand, man. We can’t go through this. Why we have to have all this pain, man? I love my brother, I’m never going to see him again,” he said as he teared up and was comforted by his son.
