In Pittsburgh, Biden to blame Trump for violence nationwide

In Pittsburgh, Biden to blame Trump for violence nationwide

In Portland, Ore., a man was fatally shot during a night of confrontations between Trump supporters and counterprotesters.

The man killed was a member of Patriot Prayer, a right-wing group whose members have frequently clashed with protesters in Portland in the past, its founder, Joey Gibson, said Sunday.

Senate Homeland Security Committee chairman Ron Johnson, a Republican from Wisconsin, said the violence and loss of life would not stop until law enforcement reasserted control.

"If I didn't INSIST on having the National Guard activate and go into Kenosha, Wisconsin, there would be no Kenosha right now", Trump wroteon Twitter.

According to a campaign aide, the Democratic presidential nominee will accuse Trump of exacerbating unrest and will make the argument that the violent turn some of the recent protests is the Trump administration's problem. "It's getting worse and you know why - because Donald Trump has fuelled every fire".

"Donald Trump has been a toxic presence in our nation for four years". Poisoning how we treat one another. "Poisoning our very democracy".

The Biden's campaign's main line of attack has thus far been focused on the White House's handling of the coronavirus pandemic and on the fact that more than 180,000 people in the USA have so far died with Covid-19.

Wheeler blasted Trump in a press conference Sunday, saying that for almost four years Americans have had to tolerate what the mayor called Trump's racist attacks on blacks, sexist talk about women, insults toward immigrants and journalists, and now, toward mayors of major United States cities.

"Biden has promised to abolish the production of American oil, coal, shale and natural gas, laying waste to the economies of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Colorado and New Mexico, destroying those states", Trump falsely stated during the convention. The president has repeatedly threatened to send federal government forces into the city if Mayor Ted Wheeler does not crack down.

The PAC is also expected to include support from several GOP megadonors, including Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, which is considered significant because he had a contentious phone call with Trump several weeks ago that had Republicans concerned he might not help Trump down the stretch.

Trump has throughout the summer cast American cities as under siege by violence and lawlessness, despite the fact that most of the protests demonstrating against racial injustice have been largely peaceful.

Unrest broke out in Kenosha last week after Mr Blake was shot seven times in the back.

It took days for Trump to weigh in on Blake's shooting, which was captured on cellphone video, and even then he had little to say.

A 17-year-old has been charged with killing two people during the subsequent unrest.

His wife, Jill Biden, plans on Tuesday to kick off what the campaign is calling a "back-to-school" combination of virtual and in-person events in eight states - Michigan, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Florida, Nevada, Minnesota, Arizona and Pennsylvania - that are all 2020 election battlegrounds, though it's not yet clear how many of those states she will visit in person.

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