President Trump is speaking out about the killing of George Floyd, saying federal law enforcement is on the case … and promising there will be justice.

POTUS tweeted Wednesday about George’s death, saying … “At my request, the FBI and the Department of Justice are already well into an investigation as to the very sad and tragic death in Minnesota of George Floyd.”

He went on to say, “I have asked for this investigation to be expedited and greatly appreciate all of the work done by local law enforcement. My heart goes out to George’s family and friends. Justice will be served!”

It’s interesting … we already knew the FBI was involved, but the fact the DOJ is jumping in right away as well is pretty telling. Seems the President is aware of how angry and fed up millions of Americans are after seeing the video of George’s killing.

It’s a more emphatic reaction than he had several days after the video surfacedof Ahmaud Arbery getting shot to death — saying it was a horrible thing, and he was awaiting the results of several investigations.

In any case, it’s good to see the case has caught the attention of the most powerful person in the country … who can actually do something about this at the highest level.

Some more consistency would be nice, but we’ll take it.
