Joe Biden argued that no one thinks President Trump can address the violence that has emerged in American cities during social justice demonstrations because “for years he has fomented it,” as the Democratic nominee delivered remarks in Pittsburgh on Monday on a subject that Trump has tried to make a focal point of his reelection bid.
Trump held a late afternoon news conference on Monday, where he condemned liberal protesters but defended his supporters who have engaged in violence, including a 17-year-old charged with homicide after a shooting that left two people dead in Kenosha, Wis., last week. The president is planning a Tuesday visit to Kenosha, which is experiencing unrest after the police shooting that paralyzed Jacob Blake. The White House said Trump plans to make the trip despite opposition from Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers and other Democrats who argue that Trump could worsen tensions.
