DC Mayor sends message to Trump with giant ‘Black Lives Matter’ sign outside White House

Washington mayor Muriel Bowser on Friday renamed an area near the White House as “Black Lives Matter Plaza” and unveiled a giant painted road sign, in a pointed salvo to President Trump over the policing of DC.

The protests are focused on the May 25 death in Minneapolis of 46-year-old black man George Floyd while in police custody. A white officer kneeled on his neck until he lost consciousness.

That officer and three others are now in custody and facing charges – second-degree murder for the kneeling officer, and aiding and abetting that crime for his colleagues.
