Dem States That Supported the BLM Riots Should Not Be Able to Apply for Disaster Relief

No. Just no.
Fires, floods, and tornadoes are legitimate disasters. As are terrorist attacks or a disease outbreak. But none of that applies if the local government starts the fire or invites the tornado in. Or actively encourages the spread of the disease. That's, as Obama liked to say about Islamic terrorism, a 'man-caused disaster' which the perpetrators can't demand relief for.
Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz has asked President Donald Trump for a federal disaster declaration to deal with damage from the late May rioting in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
Without federal disaster assistance, “Minnesotans will struggle to return their communities to normalcy,” Walz wrote in a letter to Trump on Thursday.
Damage to public infrastructure -- including debris removal and damage to public buildings and equipment -- totals $15.6 million, Walz said.
More than 1,500 businesses were damaged by vandalism, looting or fires, causing at least $500 million in damage.
That's a huge disaster. And the responsibility for it lies on the Dem political class, especially in Minneapolis and St. Paul, which encouraged and supported the riots, and shut down a police response, and the police themselves.
