(ReliableNews.org) – Kenosha, WI, is the latest city to be torn apart by violent riots. Two men are dead after being gunned down by a 17-year-old, who was charged with murder. Dozens of business owners have lost their livelihoods at the hands of arsonists. President Donald Trump is now set to visit the area on Tuesday, September 1.
On Saturday, White House spokesperson Judd Deere announced the president is going to visit the city to survey the damage left by rioters and to meet with the police. Trump has been campaigning on a law and order message that’s in direct contrast to the devastation resulting from Leftist violence in Kenosha. Not everyone is happy with the commander-in-chief’s upcoming visit.
For example, Mayor John Antaramian (D) doesn’t want the president to visit.
Kenosha Mayor says he has not been contacted by White House for the announced Presidential visit. “The President can of course go where he wants but this is not the right time for the President to visit. Maybe in a couple of weeks but not now” #KenoshaProtests #JacobBlake pic.twitter.com/1cojbHUk7G

Wisconsin’s Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes (D) accused Trump of “creating more division” and said he shouldn’t visit, as well. The president, of course, isn’t going to let reckless leaders tell him what he can and cannot do. He’s going to show his support for law enforcement whether Democrats like it or not.
