Thune says President will have to decide how to respond to protests and riots

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WNAX) – In the wake of protests and riots following the death of George Floyd, President Trump has not made a formal response as many have suggested he should.

South Dakota Senator John Thune says the President will have to decide how to respond.

Thune says the President has been making statements.

Thune says there are policy discussions underway in Washington.

Thune says while most changes have to come at the local level, Congress can provide backup on policy and financing.
