Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, addressing the civil unrest sparked by the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, claimed much of America’s racial problems were the result of a lack of faith by the left.

Patrick made his comments during a Wednesday night interview on the television show “Fox News @ Night With Shannon Bream."

“You cannot love your fellow man if you don’t love God,” he said. “And we have a country where we’ve been working really hard, particularly on the left, to kick God out.

“We need a culture change to address this racism.

“You cannot change the culture of a country until you change the character of mankind. And you can’t change that unless you change the heart, and for billions of us on the planet, we believe you can’t do that unless you accept Jesus Christ or unless you accept God. God has been left out of this equation through all of this and we need tremendous healing. We cannot heal through commissions and blue-ribbon panels and more laws.

“We can only heal ourselves if we reach out and love one another.”

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump praised the state of Texas in a Wednesday morning tweet, saying it's "in great shape."

Trump was responding to a tweet posted by someone who shared a quote from Texas Gov. Greg Abbott about the fact that the state does not need help from the U.S. military to deal with protests happening nationwide.
