In the wake of protests, rioting and violence in Kenosha over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, both President Trump and Dem rival Joe Biden traveled to the city.
Trump met with law enforcement, local leaders and business owners affected by the unrest and stressed a law and order message. He also announced $1 million to Kenosha law enforcement, $4 million to support small businesses rebuild and $42 million to back law enforcement statewide.
Biden met with Blake’s family, including a phone call with Blake, before calling for action to address institutional racism during a listening session at a church. Biden called for criminal justice reform, a $15-per-hour national minimum wage, and more funding for K-12 schools to help address racial inequities.
Both condemned rioting and looting.
