This is the fourth day of protests in St. Louis after the acquittal of former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley, who had been charged with murder in the shooting of a black driver, and President Trump still hasn't said anything.
He found time Sunday to retweet a GIF of himself hitting his 2016 presidential rival in the back with a golf ball, a projection of his estimated value to Twitter (approximately $2 billion) and a cartoon showing him literally bringing jobs back to the United States from overseas.
But he has yet to comment on Twitter or otherwise on an incident that is a microcosm of one of the major conversations during the presidential campaign: the relationship between law enforcement and communities of color.
There must be a way for Trump to address the strife in a state he won while continuing to respect his base. For a president who has record low favorability ratings, particularly among black voters, Trump's silence seems to confirm one of their biggest fears about his administration: that Trump does not care about the challenges affecting black Americans.

The mainstream media have barely covered this story. So why does this person think Trump needs to address it?
If God were to give the world an enema he would stick it in the Washington Post, i.e. Jeff Bezos.
He does what he does to personally irritate Eugene Scott.
WP crap hole of garbage.
Perhaps major conversation around the vodka bottle at the Washington comPost ... but not out here in America.
If Trump doesn’t address it, he’s out of touch and affirming his innate racism.
If he does address it,the media can obsess over every syllable and chastise him yet some more.
He has more to gain ignoring it.
compared to the comforting words of ayatollah obama when st louis exploded into all out war over the michael brown case?
I'm sure he cares more than the black community does. Reparations is the only answer the black community wants to receive.
Which probably took less time to retweet than I spent typing this reply.
“PROTEST” = radical violence by leftist thugs. White washed by the Compost.
Maybe ‘cause no body cares?
re: “There have been protests in St. Louis for four days, but Trump hasnt acknowledged them”
They think he should acknowledge their ever snivel.
He has bigger fish to fry...................
At this point I don’t care one jot about the left’s assertions of the challenges that people of color face. Not do I care one jot about assertions that whites have privilege or are racist.
I will not lift a proverbial tooth picked sized shovel to bear a load of the shit they are shoveling in everyone’s direction.
Frankly, all their violins are tiny violins.
Acknowledge what? That they per was a drug dealer with a rap sheet? A very bad person.
A bad person reaching for a gun after he had already used his car as a weapon.
Because the President should NOT get involved in such a matter..its a LOCAL issue NOT a Govt one..of course Obama got involved with EVERYTHING because he wanted to score political points
It's been on all the media. ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, CNN, MSNBC, Huffpost, Drudge, Breitbart, you name it.
