Trump’s visit to Kenosha may exacerbate protestsTrump’s visit to Kenosha may exacerbate protests

US President Donald TrumpMMA / JAS / ReutersDemocrat Mandela Barnes, deputy governor of Wisconsin, said President Trump should not visit Kenosha, where protests erupted after a white policeman shot a black man.

Barnes told CNN that the Republicans “devoted an entire conference to further divide what is happening in Kenosha,” referring to the Republican National Convention held last week.

He added, “So I do not know how, given any of his previous statements, the president intends to come here to be with us, and we certainly do not need that now.”

The White House said late on Saturday that the Republican president, who has taken a tough stance on the country’s anti-racism protests, would visit the city on Tuesday.

The shooting of Jacob Blake on August 22 in front of three of his children made Kenosha, a predominantly white city, a hotspot in a summer that witnesses demonstrations against “police brutality and racism” in the United States.
