Democrats Are Accusing President Trump For Causing The Violence In U.S. Cities

Reuters: Biden condemns Portland violence, says Trump 'recklessly encouraging' it

DETROIT (Reuters) - Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Sunday called violence at protests in Portland, Oregon, unacceptable and challenged President Donald Trump to stop “recklessly encouraging” it, after one person was killed during clashes between rival groups.

Demonstrations against racism and police brutality have swept the United States since the death in May of George Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man who died after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes.

Protests have roiled downtown Portland every night for nearly three months following Floyd’s death, and police there said they had made arrests after one person was shot to death on Saturday night.

“I condemn violence of every kind by anyone, whether on the left or the right. And I challenge Donald Trump to do the same,” Biden said in a statement, adding that “we must not become a country at war with ourselves.”

WNU Editor: This is going to be a difficult sell for the Democrats. A lot of these protests are anything but peaceful. And with many Democrat mayors and governors embracing these groups while holding back law-enforcement when things get out of hand, coupled with the fact that almost all of the violence that is happening right now is in Democrat controlled cities and states. In the eyes of the electorate the blame belongs to them. Even the cartoonists are picking up on that (see below):
