President Trump held a press conference in the Oval Office today (July 20, 2020) and he signaled a strong response to the chaos in our cities is coming soon.
He talked first about Portland, where he recently sent federal police to restore order.
“Portland was totally out of control. The liberal Democrats running the place had no idea what they were doing. They were ripping down that city, destroying it, looting it, and then the governor comes out, ‘Oh, we don’t need any help.”
Trump said the U.S. will send law enforcement into not just Portland, Oregon, but other cities as well to end the violence. The president made it clear that these are anarchists, not protesters, and they are a threat to civilization itself.
“I’m gonna do something. That I can tell you,” Trump said. “Because we’re not gonna let New York and Chicago and Philadelphia and Detroit and Baltimore and all of these [cities] — we’re not gonna let this happen in our country.”
President Trump took a hard line stand, which if he follows through will be the key to his re-election:
“These are anarchists, these are not protesters. … These are people who hate our country, and we’re not gonna let it go forward.”
That’s what normal people want to hear, and I think President Trump understands that. After describing the chaos in cities where radical left Democrats are tolerating or even encouraging the violence, Trump said:
“If Biden got in, that would be true for the country. The whole country would go to hell, and we’re not gonna let it go to hell!”
