Why The Democrats Really Don’t Want Trump To Visit Kenosha
(Tea Party 247) – The Democrats are in hysterics over President Donald Trump’s proposed plan to visit Kenosha, Wisconsin on Tuesday in the wake of riotous violence which came in response to the shooting of an unarmed black man who had been wanted for sexual assault last week.
Their new line is that he will only make things worse…because they clearly plan on making a fuss when he goes.
“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, referring to last week’s Republican National Convention.
“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.
The president has made it clear he believes in law and order. He has consistently denounced violence, burning, looting, and destruction of private property.
What world do we live in where denouncing such things will…make such things worse?
Critics accuse Trump, who faces Democratic former vice president Joe Biden in the Nov. 3 U.S. presidential election, of seeking to exacerbate violence with incendiary rhetoric.
Republicans deny this, saying Trump wants to restore law and order.
As PJ Media notes, “When standing up for the law and against anarchy becomes “incendiary,” you know we’re in trouble.”
“Even more amazing is that Democrats continue to blame Trump for the violence,” they add.
U.S. Representative Karen Bass, who chairs the Congressional Black Caucus, predicted Trump’s Kenosha visit 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” program. “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 outlet continues:
But their strategy may be backfiring. Giving a pass to violent rioters while accusing Trump of feeding the violence is causing many ordinary Americans to scratch their heads in puzzlement. By refusing to unequivocally condemn the rioting and stand up for the law and the people who enforce it, Democrats are bleeding support — not just in Wisconsin, but across the country.
More from Reuters:
“Any governor, Republican or Democrat … can request help from the federal government. We are willing to come in; we are willing to provide additional assets as we did in Kenosha,” White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows told NBC’s “Meet the Press” program.
“All options continue to be on the table” to resolve the Portland protests, including sending in federal law enforcement assistance, the acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf told ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday.
The President of the United States not only has a right to visit a stricken American city, he has a duty too. What’s political is trying to stop him from doing so.
What are the Democrats really afraid of? Perhaps that the voters are catching on that they’ve stood idly by, almost condoning the violence taking place in the streets (some outright doing so, like Rep. Ayanna Pressley).
Voters are going to take that to the voting booths in November.
