Donald Trump cites ‘Democrat-run cities’ as dangerous

During President Donald Trump’s acceptance speech on the last night of RNC, he cites statistics from violent crimes over African-Americans in “Democrat-run cities.”

Donald Trump was hard on condemning the “left” or the “radicals” for the violence that engulfed the cities across the country. Amid the massive outrage against concurrent police brutality, the president highlights that “majority of police officers in this country are noble, courageous and honorable.”

According to Trump, “We have to give law enforcement, our police, back their power. They are afraid to act.”

Donald Trump on protestors

Unlike the DNC, where the speakers, including Joe Biden, spoke deeply about the recent tragic events of hate and killings of people of color in the hands of police officers, President Trump never mentioned about the lives lost lately due to rampant police brutality.

Although he did say that if there is “police misconduct,” the justice system will hold them responsible and accountable.

During the last day of the RNC, only one of the speakers, including Trump himself, spoke about the recent tragedy of the Jacob Blake shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin—the black man who was shot seven times by an officer. And this was from the speech of Housing and urban development secretary Ben Carson, per The Guardian

Instead, the speakers’ remarks, most especially that of the president’s, “condemn the ‘violent anarchists’ marching against racism, even though the recent protests have been mostly peaceful,” as the news outlet reports.

Trump used words and phrases such as “mob rule” and “so-called peaceful demonstrators.” He expressed in his speech:

“Just imagine if the so-called peaceful demonstrators in the streets were in charge of every lever of power in the U.S. Government.”

Meanwhile, an alleged Trump supporter was arrested during the third day of the Kenosha protests, after acting as a vigilante and shooting two people dead and one severely injured.

Condemns Democrat-run cities

Donald Trump did not mention Jacob Blake, but he did include Kenosha as one of the “Democrat-run cities” that the Republican Party allegedly condemns.

He states:

“In the strongest possible terms, the Republican Party condemns the rioting, looting, arson and violence we have seen in Democrat-run cities like Kenosha, Minneapolis, Portland, Chicago, and New York.”

He further alleged that “over 1,000 African-Americans were murdered as result of violent crime in just four Democrat-run cities,” in the last year. Trump cites that the most dangerous cities in America—the top 10—are run by Democrats.

He then accused Biden and “the left” of ignoring the American victims, but he won’t, he swore. A few of his promises were ensuring ” equal justice for citizens of every race, religion, color and creed,” and upholding religious liberty, and “defend your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.”
