Dwayne Johnson Slams Donald Trump Amid Racial Injustice Protests: ‘Where Is Our Leader?’
Dwayne Johnson is showing his support for the Black Lives Matter and calling out President Trump for his actions during the nationwide protest.
The 48-year-old actor took to Twitter to share a passionate video to say that the country needs better leadership during this time of civil unrest.
“Where are you? Where is our leader?” Dwayne asks. “Where is our leader at this time when our country is down on its knees, begging, pleading, hurt, angry, frustrated, in pain with its arms out, just wanting to be heard?”
Though he never specifically called Trump by name, it was clear Dwayne was speaking about the president.
“Where is our compassionate leader who’s going to step up to our country who’s down on its knees, and extend a hand and say, ‘You stand up, stand up with me because I got you,” Dwayne continued. “I hear you, I’m listening to you. And you have my word that I’m going to do everything in my power, until my dying day, my last breath, to do everything I can to create the change that is needed, to normalize equality because Black lives matter.’ Where are you?”
“We must become the leaders we are looking for. I’ll ask it one more time: Where are you? Where is that compassionate leader who steps up and takes accountability for his country and all the people in our country?” Dwayne shared. “Where are you? I’ll tell you what, we’re here. We’re all here. The process to change has already begun. You can feel it across our country. Change is happening. It’s going to take time. We’re going to get beat up. We’re going to take our lumps. There’s going to be blood, but the process of change has already begun.”
If you missed it, Trump was recently slammed by the Episcopal bishop of Washington for this reason.
