For Donald Trump's America-on-fire campaign strategy to work, he needs violence to boil in cities right up until Election Day, or at least for enough voters to believe the nation is spiraling into an abyss of chaos and savagery. That brought the extraordinary spectacle Monday of a president -- who would by tradition call for calm at a time of civic unrest -- justifying violence by his supporters and all but excusing a pro-Trump vigilante who allegedly killed two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin. At the same time, in the White House briefing room, he minimized police brutality against African Americans that sparked a summer of protest and agony. In a Fox News interview, the President callously compared police officers who shoot Black men in the back to professional golfers who "choke" over a three-foot putt. His word choice was particularly ugly given the death of George Floyd, who stopped breathing with a police officer's knee on his neck in Minnesota in May. rump's inflammatory behavior on Monday came on a day that could come to be seen as critical for the destiny of the White House after Democratic nominee Joe Biden launched a counterattack, warning no one was safe in "Trump's America" -- which he said was hobbled by disease and fear.

It also unfolded on the eve of Trump's visit to Wisconsin, which local leaders pleaded with him to cancel to avoid exacerbating tensions. Instead, the President gave every indication that he plans to use the trip to troll his critics with his claims of a nation on the edge from a platform in a key swing state. Trump's day of fury reflects how he has now firmly settled on a campaign of demagoguery to save his presidency. Trump's provocative appearance represents a bet that a hardline "law and order" campaign can drown out the pandemic that he has badly mismanaged, that has killed more than 180,000 Americans and on Monday crossed the 6 million mark in known infections. In a classic authoritarian tactic, Trump also vastly over stated the extent of lawlessness and political violence, then promoted himself as the kind of strongman needed to restore order. On Monday, Biden left his campaign-from-home bubble in Delaware to travel to Pittsburgh to parry Trump's attacks amid increasing nervousness among Democrats that the President's hardline approach could lift him back into a race in which he is trailing. "The violence you're seeing in Donald Trump's America. These are not images from some imagined 'Joe Biden's America' in the future. These are images from Donald Trump's America today," Biden said.

Trumps reelection strategy -- create as much turmoil and mayhem as is possible while simultaneously trying to sell the snake-oil notion that only he can fix these things (that he created).

Trump doesn't fix, he only tears down. Trumpism is dependent on racism, chaos, and divisiveness.

More completely made up nonsense. The new democratic talking points for the week.

All the democrats are trying to do is make people forget that Biden is their nominee for president.
Biden is a twice failed presidential candidate, soon to be a 3 time loser. The left has been in meltdown mode since Trump beat
Clinton. They have been on a mission to attack/tear down anyone or any thing that supports president Trump.
Defund the police, Cancel culture, Free healthcare for illegal aliens,..... you get the idea.

Democratic leaders refuse to accept help from the federal government and then scream it's the presidents fault? Insane behavior... but it's election year!

You will forgive me, but this ultimately sounds identical the justification of every wife-beater who has ever lived: "Look at what you made me do!"

The people engaging in violence, rioting, looting and vandalism (who use the President's statements as their Raison d'être) could just as easily ignore him, stop the destruction, and go vote in November against him. Just like wife beaters can ignore their wive's "provocations" and not beat their wives.

Yes, it is Trump's reelection strategy. More so, it is part of Trump's pathology. It is Trump's strategy on everything, period.

You seriously think you can get away with such naked and blatant gaslighting as this? Trump isn't responsible for this turmoil and mayhem. That's nearly all on Democrats. Like nearly 100% of it. Most of the egregious actions of police have basically been in Democrat controlled areas, and have been for decades. Almost all the rioting and destruction have been in Democrat-run areas. The Democrat-lead governments in these areas have either allowed the rioting and destruction or have openly supported it. Most of the rioters destroying everything are either going to vote for Biden or, if they don't, they are only doing so because Biden isn't radical leftist enough for them.

The left are basically the people that grabs someone else's arm and makes them punch themselves while saying, "Stop hitting yourself. Stop hitting yourself." You're literally the ones doing what you're accusing others of doing.

"All of the rioting and the violence you're seeing wouldn't be happening if somebody like Donald Trump was in the White House."

The 180 degree leftist rhetoric is ****ing hilarious to watch. The left in this country has been fanning the flames of racial hatred and violence for YEARS...and lo and behold a week ago a national TV pundit on CNN points out that what they are advocating is hurting them in the polls...and suddenly...the new leftist talking point emerges.

Its TRUMPS fault!

Shocking. Absolutely shocking. Who could possibly have seen this coming?
