Romney: ‘Black lives matter’

20200607 Romney BLM March

Sen. Mitt Romney joined a protest march to the White House on Sunday against violence and brutality, saying he wanted people to understand that “black lives matter.”

Romney told Washington Post reporter Hannah Natanson he was marching “to end violence, to end brutality and that people understood that black lives matter.”


Romney told NBC reporter Haley Talbot he was marching because “We need a voice against racism, we need many voices against racism and against brutality. And we need to stand up and say black lives matter.”


On Saturday Romney posted a picture on his Twitter account of his father, George, participating in a Civil Rights march in Detroit in the 1960s.
