posted by Hannity Staff - 8.31.20

President Trump rebuked Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers’ request the Commander-in-Chief stay in Washington, DC this week; confirming his trip to Kenosha to speak with American impacted by the ongoing civil unrest.

“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!” posted Trump on social media.

 

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers told President Trump to stay away from the city of Kenosha over the weekend after the Commander-in-Chief announced his plans to visit the region plagued by violence and riots in the aftermath of the shooting of Jacob Blake.

“I, along with other community leaders who have reached out, are concerned about what your presence will mean for Kenosha and our state,” Evers wrote in a letter to Trump. “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,” Evers wrote in the letter, obtained by The Associated Press.

“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,” said a spokesperson for the White House. “President Trump looks forward to visiting on Tuesday and helping this great city heal and rebuild.”
