Forbidden phrase? Pence refused to pronounce the slogan of the American movement

US Vice President Mike Pence on ABC Channel 6 declined to utter the phrase “Black Lives Matter.”
Movement under the slogans of Black Lives Matter takes place in US cities and many other countries, participating in advocating for the cessation of police funding and fighting for “racial justice.”
The channel’s presenter noted that “you can count on the fingers” the number of Republican leaders in Washington who spoke these words – Black Lives Matter (“Black Lives Are Important”).
“I would like to say that what happened to George Floyd is a tragedy, and in this country, especially in Juneteenth (the day of the liberation of slaves – eds.), We celebrate the fact that from the very foundation of this country we value the ideal that we are all created equal and endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, therefore all lives matter, in the most literal sense … “, answered Pence. After this phrase, he noted that he did not agree with the fact that among Americans there are those who deny the value and significance of every human life.
“And yet, you will not pronounce these words, we understood your explanation,” the host said.
A wave of protests and riots against police violence and racism after the death in Minneapolis during the detention of the African American George Floyd swept through the cities of the United States, and then to several countries of the world. A video appeared on the Internet in which the police handcuffed Floyd, knocked him down, and fell on him three, one of them stepping on his neck with his knee. Floyd on the video several times says that he can’t breathe, then calms down. One policeman was accused of murder, three others – aiding.
