Over the weekend, Wisconsin’s Democrat Governor Tony Evers told President Donald Trump not to come visit the city of Kenosha, which has been rocked with violence and unrest in the wake of another politicized police shooting.
“I, along with other community leaders who have reached out, are concerned about what your presence will mean for Kenosha and our state,” Evers wrote in a letter to Trump after POTUS announced his plans to visit. “I am concerned your presence will only hinder our healing. I am concerned your presence will only delay our work to overcome division and move forward together.”

“They centered an entire convention around creating more animosity and creating more division around what’s going on in Kenosha,” Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes told CNN, according to Reuters.
“So I don’t know how, given any of the previous statements that the president made, that he intends to come here to be helpful, and we absolutely don’t need that right now,” he added.
Meanwhile, U.S. Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus, declared that a visit from the president would only make things worse.
“His visit has one purpose and one purpose only, and that is to agitate things,” the Democrat told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “We’re 66 days from an election and I think it’s a tragedy that we have a president that is doing everything he can to fan the flames.”
The reason the Democrats think that Trump’s visit is going to make things worse is that they’re planning to continue to pitch a fit that he’s going to visit in the first place. They have a point however. Trump’s visit will make things worse. For Democrats in November.
The party and their presidential nominee, Joe Biden, have only sat idly by while communities are destroyed and law-abiding citizens put in danger. Last week, Biden after seeing his poll numbers tank over the riots condemned the violence with a wink and a nod to rioters…and blamed Trump for it.
Meanwhile, American voters appear to be responding to Trump’s common-sense message of “law and order.” POTUS condemned the death of George Floyd back in May, and he said over the weekend that the Kenosha police shooting of Jacob Blake was “not a good sight.”
“I didn’t like the sight of it, certainly. And I think most people would agree with that,” he said. The use of police force is never pretty. It’s not supposed to look good like on TV. It’s supposed to be reasonable and effective.
The platform Trump and his party are running on is one of law and order. There is nothing more just for all Americans than the enforcement of all of our basic rights, which include the right to life and property. That is why Trump meeting with business owners in Kenosha who lost everything in the riots, residents who are scared of what might be next and with police and National Guard who got it under control is not good for Governor Evers, Rep Karen Bass and Joe Biden. Trump is exhibiting calm, assertive leadership. It is what people across all demographics want at times like these.
The Democrats have made perfectly clear they are not interested in defending your right to defend either. Is it any wonder that Trump is only getting more popular among minority voters?
They know their narrative is failing and that taking the black and minority vote for granted for decades is finally coming back to haunt them as they all but encourage radicals and criminals to destroy communities. It is sociopathic behavior.
