We are living in a time that many of us never believed that we would see, in which an American President is so loathed by segments of the population that politicians are declining to interact with him.
This is all a new phenomenon on America, having only truly been in issue during the Trump era. The President is, after all, a Washington outsider whose time in the Oval Office has been so unique that some have grown frightened of the political shift.
Now, as race riots continue to pop up around the nation, some in power are even suggesting that the President should refrain from engaging with Americans in effected areas.
Trump, who has taken a hard stance against racial protests in the country, will visit Kenosha on Tuesday, a White House spokesman said late on Saturday. Protests have erupted in the city after the killing of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old Black man, who was shot by a white police officer.
“They centered an entire convention around creating more animosity and creating more division around what’s going on in Kenosha,” Barnes said on CNN.
“So I don’t know how given any of the previous statements that the president made, that he intends to come here to be helpful, and we absolutely don’t need that right now,” he added.
The Lt. Governor also had criticism for Democratic nominee Joe Biden, imploring the longtime politician to release a concrete plan to battle racial inequality here in America.
