He’s fed up, and now he’s taking action.
President Trump recently announced that he will be sending federal law enforcement over to Kenosha, Wisconsin in order to restore the peace.
Trump tweeted, “We will NOT stand for looting, arson, violence, and lawlessness on American streets. My team just got off the phone with Governor Evers who agreed to accept federal assistance. (Portland should do the same!)”
…TODAY, I will be sending federal law enforcement and the National Guard to Kenosha, WI to restore LAW and ORDER!

The reason for the rioting and looting was because of the shooting of 29-year-old Jacob Blake by police officers.
The communications manager for Trump’s campaign, Tim Murtaugh, stated, “It is apparent to anyone who’s seen video tape of the shooting … that it is a very troubling and disturbing situation. The president was briefed a number of times about that. It’s a very serious situation.”
Governor Tony Evers was unable to stop the riots, so now Trump is going to have to send federal law enforcements in order to cull the violence.
