Biden: “Trump Is Rooting For More Violence”
As expected, Joe Biden blamed the violence and the riots that are happening in the cities on President Donald Trump. During his appearance on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” Biden said that the ongoing violence in the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin and other cities around the country are caused by President Trump “encouraging” the violence.
The former vice president said that “the problem we have right now is we’re in Donald Trump’s America. You know, to quote Kellyanne Conway, she said, and I’m paraphrasing today, they’re looking for more violence and more destruction because it helps them politically. He views this as a political benefit for him, he’s rooting for more violence, not less, and he’s clear about that. What’s he doing? He’s pouring gasoline on the fire. This happens to be Donald Trump’s America.”
He also accused the President of not doing anything about the pandemic or the economy. “‘In Donald Trump’s America COVID is out of control, he’s not prepared for it, he hasn’t responded to it, and he continues to do nothing to deal with it. We have 15 million people out of work. It just is amazing how, if you noticed, they didn’t speak about COVID, and they didn’t speak about any of the reasons why we’re doing what’s happening in Kenosha is happening.”
“I condemn violence in any form, whether it’s looting or whatever it is. And by the way, when I spoke to the family, the mom was really incredibly straightforward, she said, this is not who we are as a family, this is not who my son is, we condemn the violence. So who is rooting for the violence here?” The President has mocked Biden for now condemning all the violence that is happening. The Democrats didn’t even bother to mention it during their national convention. If they considered it to be an important issue, then they should have condemned it then.
The only reason why Biden and the Democrats are coming out to call out the violence now is that it is hurting their poll numbers. Ordinary Americans do not want riots that are damaging businesses and killing innocent people. The Democrats refused to condemn the violence because they wanted to pander to the far-left. They want to have it both ways. But now that it has been revealed that the Americans are not in favor of the riots, the Democrats are walking back their support.
