In his speech, Johnson supported the protests in the United States.
“Where is our leader at this time, when our country is kneeling, asking, begging, offending. Angry, frustrated, suffering from pain, just wanting to be heard? Where is our understanding leader who will come up and say: “Get up, I’m with you. I hear you, I listen to you, ”he said.
