Trump had called on mayors and governors at Pentecost Monday at a press conference in the White House to "create an overpowering enforcement presence until the violence is overcome". Otherwise he will " deploy the US military and quickly solve the problem for them ".

People have been demonstrating against police violence and racism in many places in the United States for days. It was triggered by the death of African American George Floyd , who died in a brutal police operation in Minneapolis. This sparked protests across the country, some of which turned into rioting and violence - including in the capital, Washington.

"Democrats must never escalate - not even through words," criticized Maas Trump's words and quoted civil rights activist Martin Luther King : "Inequality in one place threatens justice in everyone else." Martin Luther King's words would have lost none of their topicality. " Covid-19 not only threatens life, health and wealth, especially the weakest," said Maas. "The virus also feeds racism and anti-Semitism worldwide." Cohesion is more important than ever right now. "For me this means: Everyone should sweep on their own doorstep."

Maas had previously expressed understanding for the protests in the USA . Floyd had "horribly and shockingly" lost his life, Maas said on Tuesday at a meeting with his Ukrainian counterpart Dmytro Kuleba when asked about the situation in the United States.
