US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has reacted to Donald Trump’s actions in the wake of George Floyd protests by holding a Bible at Capitol Hill after the president held a bible in front of St Johns Church in Washington DC for a photo shoot hours after protesters had vandalized sections of the church .

Pelosi’s remarks included quoting from the book of Ecclesiastes, and from comments by former presidents George H.W. Bush and Barack Obama, as they reacted to incidents similar to the death of Floyd, who died May 25 while in police custody in Minneapolis.

Nancy Pelosi holds bible, then quotes Bush & Obama in response to Trump

The speaker read the Bush and Obama quotes from notes placed inside the Bible
“There’s an appointed time for everything,” Pelosi began, referring to Ecclesiastes.

“’A time for every event under heaven. … A time to heal, a time to embrace and a time to shun embracing’ – how about that?” she said in the video posted on her officil Twitter page at Tuesday midnight.

“Let’s focus on a time to heal,” Pelosi continued, adding that U.S. presidents have “a responsibility to heal.”

“We would hope that the president of the United States would follow the lead of so many presidents before him to be a healer in chief and not a fanner of the flame.”
Pelosi, still holding the Bible with notes papers inside it, then read a statement Bush made following the video showing the police beating of Rodney King in Los Angeles in 1991.

“Those terrible scenes stir us all to demand an end to gratuitous violence and brutality,” Pelosi quoted Bush as saying. “Law-enforcement officials cannot place themselves above the law that they are sworn to defend. It was sickening to see the beating that was rendered and there’s no way, no way in my view, to explain that away. It was outrageous.”
She then quoted Obama, from a statement he made in 2014, after the death of Eric Garner while in police custody in New York City in 2014.

“Right now, unfortunately, we are seeing too many instances where people just do not have confidence that folks are being treated fairly,” Pelosi read, quoting the former president. “And in some cases, those may be misperceptions; but in some cases, that’s a reality.

“And it is incumbent upon all of us, as Americans, regardless of race, region, faith, that we recognize this is an American problem, and not just a black problem or a brown problem or a Native American problem,” the quote continued. “This is an American problem. When anybody in this country is not being treated equally under the law, that’s a problem.”

Pelosi later criticized the use of U.S. military police to clear out protesters so Trump could safely walk to St. John’s Church from the White House.

“Some people came out and beat them so they could clear the area so the president could come out and go forward. What is that? That has no place and it’s time for us to do away with that.” Pelosi said.

The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, NIDCOM, have reacted to the horrific footage of a Nigerian man crying and begging that he has only days to live as a dreaded Pakistani gang tortured him because his “brother” owes them.

According to reports, the man’s brother named Andrew used him as collateral for a business with the group. However, as Andrew didn’t show up to pay what he owes, the gang tortured the human collateral he left behind and filmed it to serve as a warning.

In the video, the Nigerian man is seen begging his uncle to sell everything they have and pay a man called Nuruz otherwise he will be killed on July 10th.

Reacting to the harrowing video, NIDCOM said the Nigerian mission in Islamabad, Pakistan, has escalated the issue for investigation.

NIDCOM tweeted: “Our attention has been drawn to this disturbing video of a Nigerian brutally beaten up and threatened to be killed by a Deadly Pakistani Gang after his brother ripped off the gang.
