Trump Slams Violence in Democrat-Run Cities in RNC Speech

President Donald Trump painted a picture of two American futures in his acceptance speech Thursday night during the Republican National Convention (RNC), a vision of a dark future led by Joe Biden or a hopeful one led by him, campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh said Thursday.

Trump criticized the former vice president’s 47-year record in Washington, contrasting his positions on crime, immigration, and China with Trump’s own.

“In the strongest possible terms, the Republican Party condemns the rioting, looting, arson and violence we have seen in Democrat-run cities like Kenosha, Minneapolis, Portland, Chicago, and New York,” said Trump.

He referenced the police shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin that has sparked the latest round of protests, including a strike by NBA players last night.

Trump addressed the unrest in Kenosha “in terms of how the reaction cannot be to escalate violence and that you cannot have Americans continue to harm Americans in our streets,” and that police must be allowed to do their jobs.

The protests and violence were set off after a White police officer shot Jacob Blake, who is Black, multiple times in the back in front of his children. Police in Illinois arrested Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, on charges of shooting several protesters.
