Trump took his law and order campaign message to Kenosha Wisconsin today this nine days after a police officer shot an unarmed twenty nine year old African American Man Jacob Blake seven times in the back the president along with Attorney General William Bar and Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad wolf toward areas damaged during the unrest that followed the shooting the President Jacob blakes family did not meet his focus was largely on supporting law enforcement in a key battleground state. These are not acts of peaceful protests but really domestic terror reckless far-left politicians continue to push the destructive message that our nation and our law enforcement are oppressive or racist. You may have protesters but you have some really bad people to you have anarchists and you have the looters and you have the riders you have all types of agitators. Wisconsin. Democratic governor in Kenosha mayor had urged the president not to make today's trip during a meeting with other local officials. Trump defended police, officers, and promised more funding for law enforcement while rejecting suggestions of systemic racism and he continued an analogy that he first made last night when he compared the police shooting of Jacob, Lake to a Golfer who quote. When missing a critical shot. You have people that joke they're under tremendous. I said yesterday I said it last night they're under tremendous pressure. And they may be there for fifteen years and make a wrong decision one way or the other they're either dead or they're in big trouble. And people have to understand that. They choke sometimes.

Under this tremendous pressure and they don't handle it well. They call it chickened and it happens you believe systemic racism is a problem in this country. Where you know you just keep getting back to. The opposite subject, we should talk about the kind of violence that we've seen and Portland and here you could take the people of Kenosha that aren't here and that you won't see and that aren't protesting but they want change also they want to see law and order.
