Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) walked in a silent Black Lives Matter protest to the White House Sunday afternoon. The protests at the White House, while ostensibly about the death in Minneapolis police custody of George Floyd and police violence against black people, have also been about driving President Trump from office. Romney was the only Republican senator to vote to convict Trump in his impeachment trial earlier this year.
Romney said he was marching to “end violence and brutality and to make sure that people understand that black lives matter.”
