Joe Biden and Jill Biden visit Kenosha | USA TODAY

 

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will travel Thursday to Kenosha, Wisconsin, a city thrust into the national spotlight after a police shooting of a Black man triggered a wave of violent unrest that has become the latest flashpoint on racial injustice and public safety ahead of the 2020 election.

Biden's visit to the key battleground state comes two days after President Donald Trump traveled to Kenosha to tour burned-out buildings damaged in protests that turned into deadly clashes over the Aug. 23 shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man who was shot seven times in back by police and remains hospitalized. As violence erupted, two protesters were killed and police have charged Kyle Rittenhouse, 17, in their shooting deaths.

The dueling trips by Biden and Trump frame a debate about racial injustice and law and order in the final stretch of a tightening race ahead of the Nov. 3 election. The president has sought to use Kenosha and other demonstrations that gripped the country since the May 25 police shooting of George Floyd to promote his "law-and-order" campaign message, while Biden has accused Trump of using the unrest to stoke division and stymie racial progress.

  2. this is a hoax!!! scripted community meeting with sleepy joe!!!! one black woman stand up for the truth- the courage to speak the truth!!!! what kind a pastor who will let a scripted community meeting go on????? we have another pelosi here, another setup!!!!

  3. Wow He probably would’ve never visited if the polls shifted in his favor Lol Wonder why he’s here tho since he thought nothing was the problem for like 6 months

    1. He doesn’t doesn’t care at all for black people he’s sickening with his hypocrisy and choosing for his running mate Kamala Harris who has victimized many many POOR BLACK PEOPLE .
