Joe Biden Blames Trump for Riots and Violence in America’s Cities

justnews eraoflightdotcomJoe Biden used his first in-person campaign appearance outside of the Delaware region on Monday to blame President Donald Trump for the violence and unrest ravaging America’s cities.

The former vice president, who has remained secluded at home since the start of the novel coronavirus pandemic earlier this year, commenced in-person campaigning on Monday with a speech in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In his remarks, Biden addressed the mounting social unrest that has swept most of the country since the shooting last week of Jacob Blake by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

While the former vice president spent a portion of his speech criticizing violence and urging supporters to stand against it “in every form it takes,” Biden claimed the blame for such disorder rested with the current commander-in-chief.

“The incumbent president is incapable of telling us the truth,” Biden said. “Incapable of facing the facts and incapable of healing. He doesn’t want to shed light, he wants to generate heat and he’s stoking violence in our cities.”

“Fires are burning and we have a president who fans the flames, rather than fighting the flames,” he added. “But we must not burn, we have to build.”

Arguing that Trump had “long ago forfeited any moral leadership,” Biden claimed that the president was incapable of stopping “violence because for years he had fomented it.”

“He may believe mouthing the words ‘law and order’ makes him strong, but his failure to call on his own supporters to stop acting as an armed militia in this country shows you how weak he is,” the former vice president said. “Does anyone believe there will be less violence in America if Donald Trump is re-elected?”

Biden’s speech comes as protests against Blake’s shooting and more broadly in opposition to police brutality and racial injustice have turned violent in several cities across the country. The situation, in particular, has escalated not only in Kenosha, but also in areas like Portland, Oregon, and Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Although it is too early for a clear determination, the rioting has raised concerns about Biden’s leadership abilities among suburban and swing voters, many of whom are a must-win constituency if Democrats have any hope of taking back the White House in November.

    I agree with Biden. Trump is itching for civil unrest. He loves chaos. He never takes responsibility, and works thoward healing.

    Biden told the truth about Donald J Trump. Since he has become President he has divided this country. We had 8 years of a Democrat President and this country was never divided as it is now. As we know he was the first black president and the right wing of the republican party did every thing to hurt his time in office. But let us never forget that it was Obama and Joe’s leadership that got this country back to work. After Bush killed the economy for our country.

    Today history is playing out again Trump was given a good running economy and the first thing he does is give a tax break to the 1 percent. Bush had a surplus from Clinton and he wasted that money giving to the 1 percent.

    Now today we are dealing with the TRUMP Virus that killed our economy and also killed 183,000. americans. Millions are out of work living on unemployment which does not pay the bills for a family. Trump claims the virus was nothing big and by spring it will be gone. Today is September 1 2020 and it’s still here. Farmers are hurting from his trade deals I could go on but we know the man lies everytime he gets a chance.

    His game is lying and pushing FEAR to the american public so they do not see what’s really going on with our government.
    He backs the crazy right wing of the republican party, who believe white people are above the rest of american people. If your not white your a second class person. And if you do not agree with the man your no good, your a dog in his world.

    He also claims that only the Democrat run city are having protest in their city’s. Which is a big lie look down south and out west.ALL races are protesting about Black lives matter because they do.

    He believes the police are always 100 percent right and never do anything wrong. that’s a small mined person that thinks that way. Not all police are bad but let’s face it there are some that are dirty. Just like people in government not all are clean maybe 60 percent.

    And I trust the suburban people will back Binden in this election. Why because they are tired of the lies and the drama he brings ever day to our country. Four more years and the way he spends money we will be broke. After all he did have many of his company’s go bankrupt. Even 3 casinos what’s that tell you ? No wounder he is fighting to keep his taxes from the state of New York !!
