The closer we get to the 2020 election, the uglier the rhetoric is going to be.
This has already been an incredibly turbulent race, as the bombastic incumbent Donald Trump squares off against Democratic nominee Joe Biden, a former Vice President under Barack Obama. The two have been relentless in their attacks on one another, underscoring a heavy and angry divide in our nation today.
Now, with violence escalating on the streets of our nation, a great debate is raging: Whether or not federal forces should be employed in order to bring law and order back to cities besieged by extremists agitators who use the crowd cover provided by protesters to launch their attacks on democracy itself.
Biden used the opportunity to attack Donald Trump, insinuating that the President’s use of the National Guard was meant for show.
Former Vice President Joe Biden promised National Guard members Saturday he would never push them into a domestic political dispute as a “prop” and assured them they will “never, never have to wonder what side I’m on.”
Civil and military relations have been “tested lately,” Biden told the audience witnessing the virtual National Guard Association of the United States’ 142nd General Conference.
Speaking before a backdrop of American flags, with a flag pin discretely pinned to his suit lapel, Biden then attacked the president’s record as commander in chief.
“I promise you as president, I’ll never put you in the middle of politics or personal vendettas. I’ll never use the military as a prop or as a private militia to violate the rights of fellow citizens. That’s not law and order. You don’t deserve that.”
Trump’s forces were recently removed from Portland, Oregon at the behest of local officials.
Last night, confrontations between protesters and counter-protesters turned ugly, leaving one man dead.
