Conference Chairman @Sen. John Barrasso: Our nation needs to listen to the voices of African Americans about police brutality. Every American citizen deserves justice under the law.
Great to see @SpaceX complete another successful launch from @NASA's Kennedy Space Center Space Center in #CapeCanaveral tonight. Sen Rubio recognizes the importance of public-private partnerships in the #spaceindustry & is committed to strengthening them through his American Space Commerce Act.
Conference Chairman @Sen. John Barrasso: Peaceful protests are important and necessary. But these peaceful protests have been hijacked by violent criminals. They dishonor the memory of George Floyd and the cause for which the protesters first took to the streets.
You do not advance peace by committing assault. You do not advance justice by inflicting injustice upon your neighbors. You do not promote the rule of law through anarchy. WATCH @Leader McConnell Mitch McConnell's full speech:
I saw the video. George Floyd was murdered. It’s heartbreaking. Peaceful protest is the right of every American. But the rioting and looting must stop. And it must stop today. More from Conference Chairman @Sen. John Barrasso:
“Americans—including me—are angry. But the violence, anarchy, and destructive mobs aren’t principled protests. They’re forms of domestic terrorism.” @Senator Kelly Loeffler
If you are a non-violent protestor, selflessly saying “enough is enough”...we admire and respect your vigilance. It’s what we need. For those that believe violence is a way to take advantage of this situation...we can’t tolerate that. @Tim Scott
