In Kenosha, Trump Says A Vote For Him Is A Vote For Safety And Values

Nov 2, 2020

President Donald Trump has wrapped up his efforts to win Wisconsin again, as he did in the 2016 election. Trump campaigned in Kenosha Monday night.

The president repeated his disputed claim that his push to send the National Guard to Kenosha in August ended civil unrest that broke out following the police severely wounding a Black man, Jacob Blake. Trump said a vote for him is a vote for safety and values.

"If you want to be treated with dignity and respect, then I am asking you tomorrow to go out and vote for your all-time favorite president," Trump said.

In response, the campaign of Democrat Joe Biden released a statement focusing on COVID-19. The former vice president says when he's in the Oval Office, he'll stand with Wisconsin and get the virus under control.
