Protests in the US: Can the president calm the situation? (CHQR)

Professor Stephen Farnsworth of the University of Mary Washington said that presidents often try to bring the nation together during times of crisis, but that President Trump has shown little ability to express compassion or empathy during his time in public life. Trump’s response will not be anything like George W. Bush’s mourning over the loss of life during the 2001 terrorist attacks or Barack Obama’s sorrow after the shooting of a classroom full of children in Connecticut several years ago, Farnsworth said.
