Former POTUS Barack Obama is still acting rather presidential these days, and during a virtual town hall with local and national leaders -- he spoke out about the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery.

"Let me start by just acknowledging that we have seen, in the last few months, the kinds of epic changes and events in our country that are as profound as anything that I've seen in my life," said Obama. "Although all of us have been feeling pain and certain disruption, some folks have been feeling it more than others. Most of all the pain that's been experienced by the families [of] George, Breonna, Ahmaud, Tony [McDade], Sean [Reade], and too many others to mention," said Obama.

"Please know that Michelle and I, and the nation grieve with you, hold you in our prayers. We're committed to the fight of creating a more just nation in the memory of your sons and daughters," he added.

President Donald Trump has been continuing to divide the nation, encourages his supporters to use their second amendment rights -- which will only result in more killings.
