Polarizing president causes change

The change going on in America is monumental, and none of it would be happening without President Trump. Now players kneeling during the anthem for their causes are more accepted. The Confederate flag is being removed from the Mississippi flag and banned from NASCAR. Confederate statues are being toppled. Statues of other hateful historic figures are being taken down. Dramatic police reform is happening and being negotiated federally and locally all around this country. It took the explosive combination of the tragedy of George Floyd and a polarizing president to set off this radical change. Trump did not want any of these events to materialize, yet none of these changes would be happening without him. If you continually stoke the flames of division sometimes it blows back and burns you.
