Chaos has been featured heavily here in the United States as of late, with the mainstream media filling their bellies to a gluttonous degree.
The mood is tense in the US, and rightly so. An economic downturn that has been repeatedly compounded by the coronavirus pandemic and Congress’ inability to work together on a stimulus package has brought us to the brink of fiscal collapse, particularly within industries that rely both on large crowds and employees who are living paycheck to paycheck. This could bring us an avalanche of evictions and bankruptcies in the coming weeks, further stressing our already-frazzled nation.
When you throw a presidential election on top of all of this, things get downright ugly, as evidenced by the horrific political violence that we’ve endured in places like Kenosha and Portland.
President Trump this week implored his supporters to avoid confrontations with their political rivals, particularly after a caravan of Trump supporters acted egregiously in the Pacific Northwest.
During an interview aired on Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” President Donald Trump stated that he does not want his supporters to confront left-wing protesters and that such matters should be left to law enforcement. Trump also stated that his supporters are good people who “can’t believe” the violence they see in some American cities.
Host Laura Ingraham asked, [relevant exchange begins around 5:00] “[D]o you want your supporters to confront the left-wing protesters, or do you want to leave it to law enforcement?”
Trump responded, “No. No, I don’t want them. I want to leave it to law enforcement. But my supporters are wonderful, hard-working, tremendous people. And they turn on their television set, and they look at a Portland, or they look at a Kenosha, before I got involved and stopped it, or they look at Chicago, where 78 people were shot last weekend and numerous people died, or they look at New York, where violence is up by like, what? 150%. … They’re looking at all of this, and they can’t believe it.”
We can only hope that November’s election will bring some peace to our nation.
