US President Donald Trump has doubled down on his decision to send the National Guard forces to Kenosha to quell violent riots which have been taking place there over the past few days.
On Sunday, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers expressed concern about Trump’s planned Tuesday visit to Kenosha amid an ongoing wave of anti-racism and anti-police brutality protests. Evers called on the president to “reconsider” his plans.
“I am concerned your presence will only hinder our healing. I am concerned your presence will only delay our work to overcome division and move forward together,” Evers wrote in a letter to the White House.
