Trump is looking for political opportunity.

Some may think these riots in Minneapolis are exactly what he has been waiting on?

There is nothing he would like more than to call out the military to quell social unrest.

He likes the idea of being the "law and order" candidate in the next election.

I got a hunch something very fishy is going on?

Don't think that there's a grand plan here - he acts a whim, and there's no bottom to his evil.

My bets are that just like in 2015/2016, Russian bots and trolls are pushing violent reaction and divisiveness on both sides on social media.

There was a thread about this earlier this morning, with some film of a very well-equipped white man striding along smashing windows. There was also somebody saying they had identified an undercover cop as the perpetrator.

They lap it up like kittens at a bowl of milk.

Anyone that thinks he'll lose support from this mess is whistling past the graveyard.

working the area, (and being captured on video.... VERY SLOPPY,) police arresting media, Boogaloo bros. showing up???

Yes, I would say very, very fishy.

Add to that the refusal of the city govt. to arrest the murderers and this stinks to high heaven.
