Trump to visit Kenosha Tuesday, potentially stoking tensions

Source: AP

By JILL COLVIN

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump will travel to Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Tuesday, amid fury over the police shooting of Jacob Blake in the back, which left the 29-year-old Black man paralyzed.

White House spokesman Judd Deere told reporters aboard Air Force One on Saturday that Trump will be meeting with law enforcement officers and “surveying” some of the damage from recent protests that turned destructive.

The visit is certain to exacerbate tensions in the city, where a crowd of about 1,000 demonstrators gathered outside a courthouse Saturday to denounce police violence.

Trump has been running his reelection campaign on a law-and-order mantle, denouncing protesters as “thugs” while voicing his support for police.

3. There is nothing he can do there that will do any good.

And why is the POS waiting until Tuesday? To give the bad guys time to get organized?

5. POTENTIALLY?

I bet Trump is hoping for it! Who thinks he's going there to calm things down? Trump wants/needs to stoke more fear in suburban voters.

8. As long as he doesn't say the wrong thing, it'll be fine.

Yeah... things are gonna get worse.

As an afterthought, what about the armed right? I imagine they have advance notice to show up to give him "cover" and protect him, but I'm sure LEO will not allow assault weapons anywhere near him. There could be violence from both sides.

10. I hope the protesters stay home and not give him the photo op

The only photo op he gets his right wing militia idiots walking around with their guns and nobody to engage.

11. Because he's working on his electoral numbers.

The Battleground State Formula -- 270 to Win

Right now it's Wisconsin. He'll hit at least three states that get him to 270

1. Police kill a black person -- cameras, guns
2. BLM and/or allies protest the police abuse -- no cameras, no guns
3. Armed white supremacists soften up protest resistance with breaking and burning -- media, guns
4. Trump enters with psyops, makes the case that Democrat Tony Evers is weak; offers his protection racket deal: vote for me, I'll end this for you; resist, I make it worse. Your choice.
5. Non-city Republicans rev up the GOTV, draw fearful voters to take the deal

All Trump needs is the same margin of victory (22,748 votes) that he beat Hillary with.

13. "I like the people who do the shooting....

.....not the people who get shot". Not an actual quote, but you know that's what's floating around in his flea sized brain.

Asshole.
