Shortly after it was reported that the Kenosha County Board of Supervisors formally requested Governor Tony Evers “to accept 2,000 more National Guardsmen deployed by President Trump,” the President Tweeted that the governor of Wisconsin “agreed to accept federal assistance.”
The move finally came after multiple offers for assistance from the Trump administration were turned down. Police officers also asked for help, but the Democrat governor turned them down as well.
The violence in Kenosha reached a fever pitch last night, as rioters assaulted innocent people and set fires to local businesses ostensibly due to the police-involved shooting of Jacob Blake, the latest justification for left-wing violence ignored by the mainstream media.
In some cases, armed private citizens came to the aid of small businesses, thwarting Black Lives Matter / Antifa rioters.
