Trump said he hopes George Floyd is 'looking down' from heaven and appreciating the US' strong May jobs report: 'It's a great day for him'

Trump touted a strong May jobs report and said he hoped George Floyd, the Minneapolis man who died in an interaction with police ten days ago, was looking down and appreciating the economy.
The economy added 2.5 million jobs in May, bringing the unemployment rate down to 13.3% from the 14.7% rate in April.
"Hopefully, George is looking down right now and saying, 'this is a great thing that's happening for our country,'" Trump said. "It's a great day for him, it's a great day for everybody, this is a great, great day in terms of equality."
