President Donald Trump denies that sending federal agents into American cities, like Chicago and Albuquerque, to help combat rising crime is a distraction from failures to combat the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump on Wednesday painted Democrat-led cities as out of control.
With less than four months until Election Day, Trump has been serving up dire warnings that the violence would worsen if his Democratic rival Joe Biden is elected in November.
Speaking in a news conference Wednesday at the White House, Trump also said he was “comfortable: with his child and grandchildren going back to school.
“They (children) don’t catch it (the coronavirus) easily and they don’t bring it home easily, ” the president said.
Trump said his administration would decide in the next 24 hours as to whether they would follow guidelines from the Washington, D.C. city government about the mandated use of masks.
