The reality is that everything that is happening in America right now (riots, protests, hate, disunity, unnecessary deaths from Covid-19, injustice, chaos in the administration, failure to hold on to competent people, etc) has happened on Trump's watch.

Here is what he said in his acceptance speech on January 21, 2017



In this speech, he clearly promised "to heal our division" but how can he heal anything when he calls the opposition (50% of all Americans) "enemies of the people".

He promised a better America and what we have is a broken-worse-than-before America. He is responsible for what has happened on his arena. Things were not this bad 4 years ago. Now they are worse and he wants to blame others for it happening. He is the leader, the buck stops there.

Here is "one thing" that proves the point of this OP

Historically, riots have occurred due to poverty, unemployment, poor living conditions, governmental oppression, taxation or conscription, conflicts between ethnic groups (race riot) or religions (sectarian violence, pogrom), the outcome of a sporting event (sports riot, football hooliganism) or frustration with legal.

None of the protests, riots, or looting seen now was happening in 2016. He is responsible for it. It is on his watch.

Ah. Echoing the idiot Mayor Wheeler's comments. So we should reasonably conclude that Portland is the political left's vision for America. You claim differently, but it's clear by demonstration that you're lying. The "Trump made me do it" schtick won't fly.

Unfortunately, Trump has seen a massive amount of opposition to his efforts to heal our division.

Be honest. Put the blame where it belongs.

You would think all these things would make Biden a lock to win.
But it apparently isn't happening as Dems hoped.

So we should blame Trump and his "vision" for America that doesn't take account all Americans, but only his base. Got it.

Blame is not important. You get a plummer to fix your drain and you get a doctor to fix your pain. Where that drain clog and body pain came from does not matter. It is the job of the plummer and doctor to fix them. If they fail, it means they have not done the job correctly. They said they could and would do it and didn't. Trump promised to fix our drain and our pain and he has failed. You get a new plummer and a new doctor. It is as simple as that.

Unfortunately for Trump, the Covid-19 deaths will continue to mount and the protests, riots and looting will also continue and Trump is still going to fail to stop them...........and Trump (the incumbent president who is supposed to be the favorite to win) is STILL behind.

I cannot recall one instance of Trump trying to heal our division. What I do see is Trump constantly throwing fuel on the fires and starting a war with all democratic leaders. Mayor Wheeler was 100% correct in his statements from yesterday. They may not be helpful as they cause baby Trump to get even more revengeful. But they are correct.

Who cares about a negative vision if it has been PROVEN that the president-in-charge is incapable of stopping or fixing the problem. Why would it get better if reelected if he has not been able to do anything while in control. Proof is in the pudding that we are eating now.

Wow, that is a new twist. Lying about what the president said!

You have to explain that statement to me because it just doesn't make sense.

Unfortunately for Dems, those riots are equalling Trump votes.

In a Marquette Law School poll of registered voters in battleground Wisconsin, support for Black Lives Matters protests dropped 13 points from June to August, just ahead of the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha.

NN's Don Lemon said Tuesday night that Democrats "ignoring" riots in some U.S. cities represents a "blind spot" for the party, and called on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to address the problem because it is "sticking" in polling and focus groups.

Nope. Your party started the violence, and you're responsible for it. We can all see Portland and the permission by your party's mayor there allowing it to continue. The public sees your endorsement of chaos. Your party has been content to let cities burn without regard for the people who live there as long as it didn't affect your political prospects. BLM and Antifa have been your party's proxies, and now the chickens are coming home to roost right at your feet. Right where they belong.

What part of "opposition" do you not understand?

That doctor or plumber is trying to fix a problem while someone else is doing their best to make the problem worse.

You don't need to get a different doctor or plumber. You need to stop that other person.

Unfortunately for the Republicans, Trump is being blamed for many unnecessary deaths from his handling of the Covid-19 response and that death toll will continue to climb and cannot be compare to the amount of deaths occurring because of the riots.

Here is a link to an OP I put up where all the facts and figures of this are shown

No, the reality is that the protests and subsequent violence came about because of Trump's failed response to the inherent racism among the police. He caused the riots to occur. There was no rioting prior to Floyd and Blake events. It was his failed response to address the issues that caused the riots. Did you not read the link that stated what causes protests and riots to occur? It is not the injured parties that are to blame, it is the party that causes the injustice to occur that is to blame.

Using your example, Trump has been unable to "stop that other person". This equals, incompetence. He stated he was the "only one that can fix it". He has not fixed it. It is worse!
