FOX Business’ Stuart Varney, in his latest “My Take,” argues that the riots breaking out nationwide over George Floyd's death have set back American cities once again, just as coronavirus had.
“Another disastrous setback for America's cities,” he said. “New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and many others. Still locked down and now hit with riots, and curfews, and maybe more virus infections. Looters weren't wearing masks and mobs get real close together.”
Varney asked, how many employees will be returning to work now that the cities and surrounding businesses have been destroyed? People staying locked up in the suburbs may feel the need to stay, he said, since nearby stores and restaurants have not been tampered with.
