On Sunday, thousands gathered in Washington D.C. to protest both George Floyd’s death and President Donald Trump’s use of military personnel against peaceful demonstrations. Among the demonstrators was Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who marched with a group of Christian demonstrators protesting the murder of George Floyd.
Videos posted on social media show Romney wearing a mask as the faith-based protesters marched down Pennsylvania Avenue towards the White House.
Romney had previously posted a statement on his Twitter account calling Floyd’s killing “abhorrent” and emphasizing the importance of peaceful protests.
The George Floyd murder is abhorrent. Peaceful protests underscore the urgency of addressing injustices. But violence drowns the message of the protestors and mocks the principles of justice.

This comes on the heels of Romney joining a group of prominent Republicans who have said that they will not vote for President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
