I hope Joe comes forward with some proposals to address the issues leading to the protests

I know that is a general statement and I know one cannot long-standing systemic racism, and inequality with anything that approached a comprehensive plan, but I see Trump and the GOP twisting what is happening and taking over the narrative.

If I were Joe, I would have my staff in touch with the mayors and governors daily. I would gather facts and hold a daily presser almost as if I were POTUS - since the current occupant is incapacitated.

I would consult with those who have been on the front lines of civil rights issues and try to coordinate a strategy to put out high level plans to address those issues.

I know this post is clumsy and sorry if it is isnít crisp and clear, but I see the violence Is distracting from the message and that works for Trump, who would love nothing more than to paint Dems as responsible for these events.

1. I still remember when Florida was under a hurricane in 2016/2017

Trump was elected but Obama was still president. Rick Scott completely ignored Obama and gave his daily report to president-elect Trump instead of the current president at the time Obama. I was furious because the president at the time was Obama, not Trump, and Obama should be the one that's briefed on the disaster and Obama was the one that can give actual help to the crisis.

I think Joe should come up with a proposal but to get daily briefed during a crisis to pretend to be president is a waste of time for the local officials.
