Rand Paul and his wife Kelley discuss this topic and much more on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" on Friday, Aug. 28, 2020 at 8 p.m. EDT on Fox News Channel.  In his speech to the Republican National Convention Thursday night, President Trump said if you want the rest of the country to look like Portland, Ore., put the Democrats fully in charge and that’s what you’ll get. That’s hard to argue with considering what we are seeing in many of our cities, where well-intentioned protest marches long ago were hijacked into lawless and violent destructive anarchy, often led by outside agitators and violent Marxists. I experienced some of this in Washington after the president’s speech. RAND PAUL...

    There is a huge problem in the U.S. of people calling cops on black people and other people of color for no reason other than that they “look suspicious.” Not only is this response extremely racist, but it also puts POC in danger. Just look at the recent cases of police brutality against Elijah McClain, George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and so many other to see how the criminal justice system is no exception from the systemic racism that characterizes so many polices, programs, and structures within the United States.
