Trump's Healing Words

I have repeatedly seen here, and heard the complaint that the President hasn't used 'healing words'. Evidently, you're not listening and haven't checked for yourselves. The President addressed the nation and said:

“The death of George Floyd on the streets of Minneapolis was a grave tragedy, it should have never happened,” the president said in his speech. “It has filled Americans all over the country with horror, anger and grief.” The president noted that he had spoken to Floyd’s family on Friday and had expressed “the sorrow of our entire nation for their loss.”

“I stand before you as a friend and ally to every American seeking justice and peace, and I stand before you in firm opposition to anyone exploiting this tragedy to loot, rob, attack and menace,” the president said. “Healing, not hatred; justice, not chaos, are the mission at hand.” He even said that the mission at hand is 'healing'.

But, I suspect that won't be enough to elicit an acknowledgement from most of you.
