Donald Trump just told the Milwaukee area’s black community that they need more police By Andrew Joyce
In the wake of recent unrest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin over the police shooting of Sylville Smith, Donald Trump is attempting to convince Wisconsin’s black community that the answer to all their problems is more law enforcement. In a speech delivered Monday night in the largely white Wisconsin town of West Bend, 40 miles outside of Milwaukee, Trump spoke about the recent violence in the nearby city.
The main victims of these riots are law-abiding African-American citizens living in these neighborhoods. It is their jobs, their homes, their schools and communities which will suffer as a result. There is no compassion in tolerating lawless conduct. Crime and violence is an attack on the poor, and will never be accepted in a Trump Administration.
Trump then went on to call for “more law enforcement” and more effective policing.
