Ahmaud Arbery‘s mom, Wanda Cooper-Jones, praised President Trump for being “very compassionate” when he met with her and other black families during a closed-door meeting at the White House shortly before signing an executive order on police reform.
“I was very, very emotional throughout the whole conference,” Cooper-Jones told reporters. “[President Trump] was very compassionate. He showed major concern for all families. Not just one family, but for all families.”
She added: “President Trump was very receiving. He listened and addressed each and every family.”
President Trump later tweeted that Ahmaud Arbery’s mom is “A GREAT woman. Her son is looking down from heaven and is very proud of his wonderful and loving mom!!!”
A video showed Arbery being shot dead on Feb. 23 by former police officer Gregory McMichael and his son Travis McMichael. Both have since been arrested and charged with felony murder.
At the time, Arbery’s mom claimed her son was jogging through Georgia’s Satilla Shores neighborhood when the McMichaels shot him. In the months preceding the incident, videos appear to show Arbery repeatedly trespassing on a house that was under construction on Satilla Drive.
The mainstream media downplayed these facts and rabidly pushed the narrative that Arbery was shot to death because the McMichaels were racist.
Arbery’s death preceded the killing of George Floyd — the catalyst for the media-stoked
After meeting with Ahmaud Arbery’s mom and other black families, President Trump signed an executive order on police reform that banned the use of chokeholds unless an officer’s life is at risk.
Predictably, Democrats and the left-wing media immediately criticized Trump. However, their silence was deafening when Barack Obama did little to address police reform or quell racial division during his eight years as president.
If anything, Obama escalated racial tensions between the police and black communities by immediately blaming “police brutality” for the 2014 shooting death of black youth Michael Brown.
Obama’s Justice Department (whose head was black Attorney General Eric Holder) later cleared white cop Darren Wilson of any wrongdoing in Brown’s shooting. However, race-baiting grievance mongers continue to treat Brown’s death as an example of “racist white cops.”
In 2014, a CNN panel promoted the “Hands up, don’t shoot” lie concerning Brown’s shooting.
The media’s relentless fomenting of black rage fueled three days of riots in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014 and spawned the anti-police Black Lives Matters movement.
