Biden denounces violence, but fumbled a chance to defuse riot issue

Trump presses law and order message as protest turns deadly - The Jakarta Post Donald Trump, Joe Biden hit out at each other after one shot dead during protests in Portland

But the 77-year-old Democrat punched back, branding Mr Trump "a toxic presence in our nation" since his inauguration.

Trump's assertion was similar to rumors posted on Facebook that NBC reported https://nbcnews.to/2YQUPHN began circulating in June about men dressed in black disembarking on planes in Idaho that prompted local authorities to eventually denounce.

Mr Wheeler said the auto caravan that rode through Portland Saturday night was inspired by Mr Trump.

To hold a four-day virtual convention and stop working to point out the riots that have actually swept American cities in current months was a significant mistake, a gift-wrapped bundleto Donald Trump By focusing exclusively on the terrible deaths of individuals like George Floyd, Biden's convention sent out a signal of indifference to the robbery, burning and deadly gunshots of those opposing in the name of racial justice. The White House has said that it has tried to make contact with the family of Jacob Blake, the Black man shot seven times in the back by police in an incident that triggered unrest last week.

"I want to be clear about this: Rioting is not protesting".

Trump said he declined because that would be "inappropriate".

Ms Ingraham asked him where they were coming from.

"[Trump] can't stop the violence because for years he has fomented it".

"Joe Biden restated his support for peaceful protests but, crucially, condemned the violence that has come to dominate the months-long nationwide protest movement", Basham told the Express.

Trump also compared police officers who shoot civilians to golfers who miss putts while discussing the shooting of Jacob Blake, prompting Ingraham to try to save him again.

"We are facing multiple crises - crises that, under Donald Trump, keep multiplying".

"That was an interesting situation", Trump said Monday during a news conference.

Ms Ingraham asked where they were getting their money.

The move comes as Trump's campaign has burned through money nearly as fast as it has taken it in. Trump aides believe that tough-on-crime stance will help him with voters and that the more the national discourse is about anything other than the coronavirus, the better it is for the president.

A microcosm of the racial and ideological tensions of the Trump era, Kenosha has seen Black Lives Matter protests, riots, and the arrival of armed, white vigilantes, culminating in an incident where a 17-year-old militia enthusiast allegedly shot dead two people at the protest and badly injured another.

Biden also used his speech to move beyond the issue of violence in cities in an attempt to frustrate the President's effort to make law and order the key issue in the election. "It's lawlessness, plain and simple, and those who do it should be prosecuted", he said.

"You know me. You know my heart".

"It was a bad, awful thing to witness", Trump said.

Later the speech widened out into a rebuttal of the claim the Democratic nominee is a fringe politician with extreme views, with Mr Biden asking: "Do I look like a radical socialist with a soft spot for rioters?"

He has a stable lead over Mr Trump in the national polls.

The president had more specific and pointed criticism for Portland's Democratic mayor, Ted Wheeler, and Biden over their responses to protests that have frequently been declared riots.

Biden declared that even as Trump is "trying to scare America", what's really causing the nation's fear is Trump's own failures.
