Alsaei and Hosley share the story of the night that their store was destroyed, describing how they have seen their fellow Americans join up to help them ring Valentine Deli back to life.
“There are so many ways to make a change, but not with violence and rioting and destroying people. That has nothing to do with anything,” Alsaedi said in a statement provided to the Daily Caller News Foundation. “There are family businesses, kids – there were a lot of families – whose businesses got destroyed.”
“Share the love, you can do a whole lot with love,” said Hosley added in a statement. “It’s very important to have around you, the love and respect of people.”
Pierson emphasizes that rioters and looters, while calling to defund the police, have done serious damage to black communities across the country. The Trump campaign advisor also highlights POTUS’s efforts to aid suffering communities.
“It was President Trump who stepped in and offered federal resources and put additional manpower on the streets that calmed this chaos,” Pierson said in a statement provided to the DCNF. “He stepped up to protect Americans that were abandoned by their local elected leadership. Democrats have had their chance, in fact decades of chances, and they have failed.”
