Sylvester Turner pleaded and sided with criminals to "chill".
Sympathy with China
When President Trump closed the Chinese consulate in Houston, Sylvester Turner did nothing, but he defended China in a gingerly way. Wanting more relationships with the Chinese government, he called them "Houston's third-largest trading partner", and defending China's handling of the coronavirus, by saying "China helped protect Houstonians and first reporters during the COVID-19 pandemic, with medical supplies and face masks". He also hoped that the consulate would reopen, to resume trade with the Chinese Communist Party.
Chinese state-run media praised Sylvester Turner for "curbing" the spread of the virus, even when COVID-19 was going up in Houston.
The pro-Antifa Houston Communist Party has congratulated Sylvester Turner for denouncing "Trump's fascist and racist campaign".
Here is what the Communists said: "Thank you, Sylvester Turner, Mayor of Houston, for denouncing the hostile anti-immigrant rhetoric of Donald J. Trump and his fascist campaign",
