Don Jr. says George Floyd mural lightning strike may be sign from ‘higher power’
The son of former President Donald Trump, Don Jr, posted on social media regarding the collapse of a mural dedicated to Geroge Floyd after being hit by lightning.
“This will drive some people nuts but oh well,” Don Jr. started off the post. “I mean you have to wonder if someone, like a higher power, is telling us something here?!?” He continued.
“Obviously what happened to George Floyd should never happen anywhere!!! That said, objectively speaking, given his history I’m not sure turning him into a deity and a role model for our children is exactly the right idea either,” he added.
He then went on to call those who wish to tear down statues of our founding fathers “lunatics” and equated them to those who support erecting statues to George Floyd. “Also please don’t tell me they’re not trying to turn him into a role model/hero there’s statues of him going up all over the country etc. etc. The same lunatics who want to erase our founding fathers want statues of this man all over the place. Again, we can learn from a disastrous situation but the pendulum seems to always correct way too far these days.”
“It’s almost like a higher power is telling us something. When was the last time you heard of a brick building being destroyed by lightning? I am a builder and I’m not sure I’ve ever heard of it,” Trump Jr. tweeted.

The mural, created by Toledo artist David Ross was finished in April and reduced to rubble after being struck by lightning on Tuesday. “When I did the mural, there was stuff on the wall that I couldn’t remove, and that let me know how strong that structure was,” Ross said “The lightning thing, that’s possible, but I know it didn’t just fall.”
