Former President Barack Obama addressed demonstrators protesting the death of George Floyd, urging them to channel their anger into making leaders "uncomfortable."

During a virtual town hall, hosted by the Obama Foundation's My Brother's Keeper Alliance, the ex-POTUS said he rejected a debate as “a little bit of chatter on the internet" about “voting versus protests, politics, and participation versus civil disobedience and direct action.”

“This is not an either-or. This is a both,” he said.

“And to bring about real change, we both have to highlight a problem and make people in power uncomfortable, but we also have to translate that into practical solutions and laws that could be implemented and monitored and make sure we’re following up on.”

But as President Donald Trump came down heavily on state governors to tackle the violent riots plaguing the cities, Obama failed to support the president's hands-on solution.

Obama instead asked governors to “commit to report on planned reforms."

The former president also compared current protests to the unrest of the 1960s, claiming the poll suggests Americans support the unrest despite some "having been marred by the actions of a tiny minority that engaged in violence.”

Obama was one of the first Democrats to politicize Floyd's death, saying it “shouldn’t be ‘normal’ in 2020 America."

In a post on Medium, Obama laid out his plans for 'change.'

“I’ve heard some suggest that the recurrent problem of racial bias in our criminal justice system proves that only protests and direct action can bring about change, and that voting and participation in electoral politics is a waste of time,” he wrote.

“I couldn’t disagree more.”

But Obama failed to address the 'professionally managed' far-left group Antifa, who has been the driving force behind the riots and looting.

Earleir this week, President Trump officially declared Antifa a terrorist group by the US Government.

"The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization," President Trump tweeted.

President Trump also warned that the radical left, rallying being presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, would seize power if he becomes president.

Trump wrote on Twitter:

“Sleepy Joe Biden’s people are so Radical Left that they are working to get the Anarchists out of jail, and probably more."
