Kenosha, Wisconsin was the latest site of wild, out-of-control riots by radical leftist activists. The state needed the help of the National Guard to end the chaos. But even with the president’s help, the governor told Trump not to come. The president ignored his wishes and visited Kenosha, making this vow.
Reports indicate that out of 175 rioters arrested in Kenosha, 102 of them were from out of state. Rioters came from over 44 different cities across the country, proving this wasn’t a “grassroots” demonstration over Jacob Blake, but an orchestrated attack by funded leftists.
The only smart thing the Democratic governor of the state did was ask for Trump’s help. The National Guard and other federal law enforcement were sent, ending the chaos immediately. But the damage over the two nights of chaos had already been felt. Much of it was in the black-owned business district. Some estimate the costs will be in the tens of millions.
Unsurprisingly, the governor rejected Trump’s visit to the state. He told Trump to stay away, even after the president saved the city (and presumably many other cities nearby). But the president refused to cower to a leftist’s demands and visited the city anyway.
President Trump on Tuesday got an up-close look at the damage caused by recent riots and looting in Kenosha, Wis. — touring property damaged by the violence and promising to help devastated businesses rebuild.
“We’re going to get it fixed up, we’re going to help people rebuild their businesses in Kenosha…we’re getting it straightened out”…
He toured the area, including a burnt out building still smelling of smoke, alongside officials including Attorney General William Barr and acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf. He spoke with members of law enforcement as he visited the site…
He will later tour an emergency operations center at a local high school, and take part in a roundtable with local law enforcement. [Source: Fox News]
Joe Biden gave a half-hearted speech blaming the violence on Trump. But something tells me the rambling Democrat will not be visiting with law enforcement. Nor will he lay out a plan to restore law and order to our cities. Biden can’t even finish a speech written for him by his handlers. There’s no way he can lead us out of this time of unrest and violence.
(After all, Democrats are the ones funding these leftist activists.)
President Trump took a bold stance by visiting Kenosha. Much like his march through D.C. after those riots, he is showing America that he is not afraid to look at leftist evil right in the eyes. He is confronting this new wave of Democrat-backed lawlessness and is promising to restore what was lost.
He promised that we’ll fix the problem and rebuild people’s lost businesses. Any other politician would have been just giving lip service. But Trump means what he says. If he says he is going to rebuild these cities, he’s going to.
What is the only thing standing in the way? Those Democrat leaders that run blue cities and states. For years, they’ve pushed policy that spread poverty, drug addiction, and homelessness. Now, they defund police so that anarchists can riot and loot.
Unless they are removed from office, any attempts to rebuild are meaningless.
