President Trump announced on Tuesday that his administration would be providing millions in financial assistance to help Kenosha police and the city recover from the riots.
The President’s commitment paints a stark contrast from rioters and top Democrats who are demanding that police are defunded or even abolished.
“I’m committed to helping Kenosha rebuild, we all are,” President Trump said at a press conference on Tuesday. “I will provide $1 million to the Kenosha law enforcement so that you have some extra money to go out and do what you have to do… It was a rough week to put it mildly, and you’ve done it incredibly well,” the President announced.
$42 million more will also go towards “supporting public safety state-wide including direct support for law enforcement and funding for additional prosecutors to punish criminals and resources to provide services to victims of crime,” the President added, with another $4 million available to support small businesses that were burnt down.

This really is a massive difference in terms of who supports who in today’s political climate. While President Trump is giving millions towards supporting the police through these turbulent times, Democrats express support for defunding police.
While President Trump labels these riots as the domestic terrorism that it is, Democrats have until recently, tacitly or expressly supported them.
Who can forget Congresswoman Ilhan Omar calling to dismantle the police?
Or Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley demanding unrest in the streets?
It’s no wonder The National Association of Police Organizations endorsed President Trump for his re-election last month. It’s pretty damn clear only one party is backing law and order in this country, and it’s not coming from the left.

As President Trump announced his support for Kenosha, more information has come out about the incident that kicked it all off to begin with, that being the shooting of Jacob Blake.
The Kenosha Police Union alleges that Blake confronted officers, armed with a knife that he refused to drop, and had one of them in a headlock before he was shot.
