Trump demands Portland clean up ‘mess,’ defends Kenosha response ahead of trip: ‘See you on Tuesday!’
FOX NEWS: President Trump on Monday doubled down on his plan to go to Kenosha, Wis., Tuesday despite Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers asking him to stay away.
Kenosha is where Jacob Blake, a Black man, was shot several times in the back by a police officer, leading to widespread protests that turned into riots, looting, and arson last week, though the violence has subsided in recent days.
Evers, a Democrat, made the request of Trump on Sunday, saying the president "will only delay our work to overcome division" by appearing in Kenosha. Trump's campaign has highlighted rioting in several large cities in recent months as a reason to vote for him to restore "law and order."
