Donald Trump also spoke in the speech in the rose garden about the corona crisis in the USA . It was a “plague from China” that would have swept across the United States, but he, Trump, would “rebuild everything. It starts all over again. ”
Donald Trump invents an AIDS vaccine
Trump is certain that the pandemic will soon be over. The best scientists in the world are busy developing a vaccine. They are the “smartest and brightest people” out there, and to prove it, Trump said: “They developed the AIDS vaccine.” To date, there is no vaccine against the HIV virus that can cause AIDS.

Trump himself seemed to realize shortly after that that he had made a mistake, but he did not want to admit it. Instead, he preferred to speak of “different treatments for AIDS”. And even if there was no early vaccination against the Sars-CoV-2 virus, it would “disappear” anyway.
Update from Tuesday, June 16, 2020, 7:05 p.m .: After weeks of protests against racism, US President Donald Trump has promised justice to the families of victims of police violence. “Her loved ones will not have died for nothing,” Trump said at a performance in the White House rose garden after meeting with relatives. He then signed a police reform order.
Donald Trump: Police officers should only use stranglehold in an emergency
Trump announced, among other things, that police officers should only be allowed to use strangleholds when their lives were in danger. The decree aims to improve recruitment, training and rules of engagement for police officers.
Trump said police accountability needs to be improved. There had to be more transparency. More needs to be invested in police training. Americans also believed that “the brave men and women” deserve police support, Trump said. He vigorously opposed calls for police authorities to cut funds. “Without the police there is chaos, without the law there is anarchy,” he said.
According to Trump, the United States is a country whose “men and women want law and order. They may not be talking about it, they may not even know they want it. But they want it, ”said Trump.
Trump is campaigning
Trump used the speech in the rose garden to campaign. Instead of the police violence against blacks, he suddenly spoke of the steadily recovering economy, the stock market and retail sales.
At one point, he also claimed that Barack Obama and Joe Biden “never tried” to begin police reform. Again, that is not the truth. In fact, the Obama administration has launched a number of initiatives on the subject.
Trump just said that Obama and Biden did nothing about police reforms. That is a lie.https://t.co/kd9nM28zuL

Donald Trump: US President wants to deliver a speech
US President Donald Trump has condemned Floyd’s death several times. However, he is accused of not clearly positioning himself against racism and not showing enough understanding for the anger about discrimination and injustice in the country. His visit to a nearby church, including the use of tear gas against demonstrators, had caused an outcry among believers and atheists alike. To de-escalate, Trump could now take a clear position in his speech.
LAW & ORDER!

Even Donald Trump’s handling of the protests caused a stir. He described the riots as “acts of domestic terror” and appealed to all mayors and governors to “show an overwhelming police presence” until “the violence is overwhelmed”.
George Floyd’s death: Donald Trump’s handling of the protests in criticism
George Floyd died on May 25 in a brutal arrest in Minneapolis, Minnesota. A white police officer had pressed his knee on the neck of Floyd lying on the floor for almost nine minutes - despite all requests from the 46-year-old to let him breathe. Floyd was arrested on suspicion of paying with a false $ 20 bill. Since his death, there have been major protests against police violence, racism and discrimination in the United States - and worldwide.
