US President Donald Trump on Monday suggested he would use federal troops to end the unrest that has erupted following the police killing of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man, last week.
Previous presidents, however, have sought to balance military might with words of compassion and calm, and critics have argued that balance has been missing from this White House.
