President Donald Trump will visit the city of Kenosha, Wisconsin, despite opposition from the governor, Tony Evers, who after 9 days of unrest failed to pacify the city.      

After African American Jacob Blake was shot by police Aug. 23 in Kenosha, hundreds of protesters ignored mandatory curfews, some 34 fires broke out and at least 30 businesses were destroyed or damaged, The Associated Press reported.

President Trump sent the National Guard to protect citizens and their property, since the riots, which should have been peaceful demonstrations, were not controlled by local authorities.

“If I didn’t INSIST on having the National Guard activate and go into Kenosha, Wisconsin, there would be no Kenosha right now. Also, there would have been great death and injury. I want to thank Law Enforcement and the National Guard. I will see you on Tuesday!” Trump tweeted.

Evers expressed his opposition to Trump’s visit by writing, “I am concerned your presence will only hinder our healing. I am concerned your presence will only delay our work to overcome division and move forward together,” Fox News quoted Aug. 30.

It is clear to President Trump that he must support the safety of citizens and federal property across the country, so he has arranged for federal officials to intervene in cities under siege that have not been properly guarded by the Democratic leaders in charge.

“The only way you will stop the violence in the high crime Democrat-run cities is through strength!” reiterated President Trump in one of his tweets.

White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere confirmed that President Trump’s visit will take place on Sept. 1, as scheduled, according to UPI.

“The White House has been humbled by the outreach of individuals from Kenosha who have welcomed the president’s visit and are longing for leadership to support local law enforcement and businesses that have been vandalized,” Deere wrote on Aug. 30.

He added, “President Trump looks forward to visiting on Tuesday and helping this great city heal and rebuild.”
