Trump blasts riots, says there would be ‘no Kenosha’ if not for National Guard:
President Trump threw down against ongoing riots engulfing American cities in a series of tweets Monday morning, singling out Kenosha and Portland.
He began by claiming Kenosha would not exist if he hadn’t demanded that the National Guard be deployed to crack down on violent protesters in the Wisconsin city.
“If I didn’t INSIST on having the National Guard activate and go into Kenosha, Wisconsin, there would be no Kenosha right now. Also, there would have been great death and injury. I want to thank Law Enforcement and the National Guard. I will see you on Tuesday!,” the president said on Twitter Monday.
He called on Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler to do the same. --->READ MORE HERE

Trump 'stands ready' to help Democratic cities restore order, White House says
The White House said Monday that Democratic mayors and governors need to “step up” and stop street violence and rioting or ask President Trump for help.
A day before Mr. Trump travels to view rioting damage in Kenosha, Wisconsin, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the president wants to “visit hurting Americans.”
“These cities have experienced anarchy, violence and destruction in recent days — the opposite of a peaceful protest,” she said. “This is the reality facing American cities and towns across the country. This is not hypothetical. These are real people in real life that have been impacted.”
Kenosha has been the scene of weeklong protests and street violence, including two shooting deaths, after police shot Jacob Blake, a Black man, during a domestic disturbance.
Ms. McEnany said “chaos was rampant” in Kenosha before Mr. Trump sent in nearly 1,000 National Guard troops and about 200 federal law enforcement agents to restore order. --->READ MORE HERE
