(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- President Donald Trump made it abundantly clear during an interview with Laura Ingraham on Fox News On Monday night that he doesn’t think people should engage with far-left extremists looting and rioting on the streets. Instead, the president called on people to stay away from the dangerous Democrat voters and leave them to the police and law enforcement to handle.
Ingraham asked the president whether he wants his supporter to “confront the left-wing protesters” or whether he wants to “leave it to law enforcement.”
The president responded, “No, no, no. I want to leave it to law enforcement.”
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has not been quite so forthright on these matters. Instead of condemning Antifa and Black Lives Matter, which President Trump did in this same interview, he has said he opposes all violence.
Remember when President Trump condemned the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville in no uncertain times, calling them evil? Well, it seems that Joe Biden is incapable of doing the same when it comes to his supporters who are burning down cities in the name of social justice.
Ingraham asked again whether the president wanted his supporters to confront far-left extremists, to which he said, “No, I don’t.”
“They want to protest, and they get criticized,” President Trump said. “The other people run through the streets, burn down storefronts, hurt people, beat people, and kill people, kick people in the face – that would have happened to Rand Paul, by the way, and his wife, except that you had two and then ultimately four very good policemen who took a big beating. They took a big beating and they really saved Rand Paul.”
The comments come at a particularly divisive time, when far-left extremists continue nightly violence in Portland and destroying buildings in Kenosha, Wisconsin. President Trump has repeatedly called for calm and asked Democrat governors to work with him in sending in the National Guard to quell the violence, but most governors have refused to fully cooperate.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden is trying to blame the violence on President Trump. This interview should make it pretty clear that President Trump doesn’t want his supporters turning out to engage with Biden’s supporters who are burning down cities.
