Donald Trump seems to have finally settled on a campaign strategy. He is emphasizing law and order, in hopes of putting a stop to the violence that is currently taking place in many American cities. In the most hilarious of ironies, he is being blamed for the violence by team Biden. These are the same people who want to neglect the role that their own voters are playing in these incidents.
It’s clear to see that Biden and company are starting to sweat. They went on the offensive over the weekend, claiming that Trump should have kept the violence from happening in the first place. The rationale that they are trotting out is easy enough to understand. Biden’s poll numbers are beginning to slip and many analysts believe that the riots are to blame.
The Biden surrogates spent their weekend talking to all of the Sunday show hosts about it. If you stop to think about their logic for more than a second or two, you will see how insane it is. Now that this claim is out there for the rest of the world to consider, the president is being attacked more than ever before. It’s a whole mess and we are glad that we do not have to sort it out.
Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield even made an audacious claim about President Trump being responsible for inciting the violence. “He has at every opportunity tried to fan the flames here and that is the reason we’re living in Donald Trump’s America,” she told Fox News over the weekend.
Since the death of George Floyd, American cities are plagued with waves of violence. Cities that are currently struggling have been offered federal assistance by the president. At the moment, many of these mayors and governors are refusing to accept it. We wouldn’t be surprised if these leaders had already received their marching orders from the Biden team.
Any Democrat leaders that are seen accepting help from the president are going to have a lot of explaining to do. That’s why they would rather allow their cities to burn. It is easier to do nothing. Joe Biden is delivering a confusing message, though. He has to say whatever it takes to get his poll numbers back up, especially now that everyone has caught onto the fact that he is enabling the rioters.
“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. Does anyone believe there will be less violence in America if Donald Trump is reelected?” said Biden during a recent speech, wherein Trump was again accused of “inciting” violence.
Was this the best response that the Democrats could come up with? Generally, the issues that take place in America are going to be the current president’s problem, so they are right in principle. For example, the president is going to be judged on his response to the COVID-19 pandemic because it was a natural phenomenon that took place on his watch.
The riots do not fall under this category. They are a municipal issue that is not being handled properly. Once you have arrived at the federal level, the best that the president can do is contact the National Guard. Mayors and governors seem reticent to take this step, so what else can the president reasonably do at this point?
Biden may think that he’s clever by asking questions about Trump’s ability to stop violence that he did not start in the first place. Perhaps Biden needs to be willing to ask different questions, though. How is the violence going to end if the presidency is turned over to the Democrats? He seems to believe that the truth is self evident here but we are not so sure right now.
