Bill Lee Talks About the Death of George Floyd

Governor Bill Lee appeared on the Paul Finebaum Show Friday afternoon to talk about a multitude of topics including bringing sports back to Tennessee and the state’s progress in testing for Covid-19.

 

At the tail end of the interview, Finebaum gave Lee the floor to talk about the death of George Floyd.

 

“What happened to George Floyd is a heartbreaking tragedy,” said Lee in an opinion that echoes that of many others. Lee went on to say what actions he has taken in the aftermath of incident.

 

“I’m talking with law enforcement leaders across our state,” Lee said. “I also spent time talking to African American leaders in Tennessee to talk about how we can keep this from being a part of what happens in this state because it is unacceptable. We won’t tolerate it.”
