Susan Collins criticizes Trump's treatment of protesters as 'painful to watch'

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) on Tuesday called out President Trump for what she thought was his “unsympathetic” handling of peaceful protesters who were dispersed with tear gas on Monday evening so Trump could pose with a Bible in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church.

She said it was "painful to watch" U.S. Park Police and National Guard troops fire tear gas and forcefully push through a large group of peaceful protesters to clear a way for Trump. The dispersed people were protesting the death of George Floyd, an unarmed African-American man, under police custody in Minneapolis last week.

Collins, who faces a competitive reelection race in a state where Trump is expected to lose the popular vote, said Trump’s actions were not what the country needs at a time of widespread racial tension and high unemployment, which have added to the anxiety surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.
