US Vice President Mike Pence refused to pronounce the slogan of the Black Lives Matter movement. He stated that the lives of All people are equal.
When on the air of 6 ABC channel, the presenter noted that in the United States Republicans rarely utter the main slogan of protesters, Pence did not succumb to the trick.
Instead, he stated that he considered the death of African American George Floyd a tragedy.
He emphasized that in the United States, people support equality. Also, on the day of the liberation of slaves, Americans note that since the founding of the country they “cherish the ideal according to which everyone is created equal and endowed with the Creator certain inalienable rights.” Therefore, Pence concluded, the lives of all people matter.
When he was again called upon to separately recognize the value of the lives of African Americans, since not everyone can do it in the country, the US vice president objected.
I do not agree with the fact that there is a certain segment among Americans that denies the value and significance of every human life, says Mike Pense.
