Air Force One landed in Waukegan Tuesday afternoon and President Trump was joined by Attorney General William Barr as they began making their way to Kenosha.
During the president’s time in Wisconsin, President Trump met with law enforcement officials and went to see first-hand the damage caused by several days of violence at the beginning of the protests.
President Trump on the other hand blamed ‘’domestic terror’’ for the ‘’destruction’’ in the Midwestern city.
Kenosha saw days of violence after police shot Jacob Blake in the back on August 23. This left him paralyzed without the hope of getting better.
Mr. Joe Biden accused Trump of stoking racial division in his attempt to push a strong ‘’Law and Order’’ message. However, opinion polls show Mr. Trump narrowing Biden’s lead ahead of the November polls.
‘’Fires are burning and we have a president who fans the flames rather than fighting the flames,’’ Biden said ahead of the Tuesday trip.
In Kenosha, Trump visited the places that were damaged during the protests, including stores that were burnt. He said the acts are of domestic terror rather than peaceful protests. He defended the actions of the US police accusing the media of focusing on only the bad side of the story.
Trump, however, showed some sympathy for those that were hurt during standoffs with the police. But he said there is no systemic racism in law enforcement.
