Minneapolis Business Owner Pleads With Trump to Visit the City

A Minneapolis business owner whose business was burned down in the riots is pleading for President Trump to visit the city.

According to Fox Business:

The owner of a Minneapolis hair salon that was burned down during riots over the death of George Floyd said that local and state officials have failed to help her rebuild her business and she is now faced with a $2,000 bill just to tear down the destroyed building and put a fence around it.

“I haven’t gotten anything, not a penny,” Flora Westbrooks, the owner of Flora’s Hair Designs, told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday.

“My plan is to rebuild my business,” Westbrooks said. “I built that business myself and I just want my business back. That’s all I want, to just get my life back. I want my life back.”

“I have been sitting here since May and I haven’t gotten any help at all,” she continued. “If he could, please Mr. President, could you please just come and do something for our business and my community, please, sir.”

She stated that she would tell Trump simply that she needed help.

I’m sure President Trump cannot simply help one person, but I’d like to see him go there and figure out why she hasn’t received any help from the city seeing they allowed BLM/Antifa to destroy her business by having the police stand down.

Wouldn’t be surprised if President Trump already has one of his staff researching exactly that, so staffer can unobtrusively solve her problem.

Flora, you need to rebuild you business in a business friendly, law abiding citizen friendly city. Minneapolis isn’t it and neither is most other Democrat run cities.

It is a sad day in Minneapolis the people who were elected to office do not make an effort to help the citizens who live there. When a person lives in your city it is the duty of those in public office to help those people rebuild their business. This woman wants to go back to work and she is asking for a hand up, not a “hand out” as so many people do.

To Griz no you don`t. I thought a Georgia peanut farmer by the name of Carter was the ticket but he was weak. Next a black man who said he was a Christian. He has a Muslim pinky ring and muttered Allahu Akbar on his knees facing the east in the White House. This jerk got us here with his divide.These Democrats and Rinos should have their money stripped from them for repairs. They are responsible for allowing the burning and carnage that has gone on. Their money should be used to replace what they allowed to be destroyed by their own rhetoric. People should be held accountable and responsible for their own actions. They can chant death to America as they rebuild what they destroyed. They applauded the chaos from their own lips.Jail time and death should be their epitaph

First get out of black areas. Even if your black get out of black areas. Your masters ie the Democratic part will never let you advance. Second get a job or open a business. Embrace conservatives and conservative ideas and you will be embraced in return. Conservatives want to see you succeed.

Here’s a novel idea. Demand financial reporting of BLMs income and bank balance. Then ask for REPARATIONS, based on their violence to your business and their stated purpose: Justice. If that fails, sue them. Thousands of business owners should follow suit.
Since the NBA has conjoined itself with BLM, request in the noisiest way possible that they own up to their backing BLM by participating in giving reparations to honest, deserving business owners like you. Ask Trump to call them on the carpet.

I have read that a lot of the Rioters are offspring of very wealthy people. Make their Parents pay for damages to these business.

First to summon the POTUS to make an appearance in that hostile environment is outrageous! For these hot beds of states, cities and towns under the control of DEMONRATS to expect any monetary assistance from functioning taxpayers is also asking too much.

Clean up your own mess by voting the Socialist/Communists out of office and THEN rebuild . . . or this woman could turn back her clock to see if that would do any good . . .

Only other option is to pack up and get out of Dodge!!!
