White House: Trump Will Go To Kenosha Over Gov’s Objections To “Demonstrate His Respect” For Wisconsin

The Washington Post reports:

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Monday that Trump will travel to Kenosha, Wis., on Tuesday despite a plea from the state’s governor for him to stay away. She also said the White House has been unable to make contact with the family of Jacob Blake, whose shooting by police sparked unrest in the city. “This president shows up,” McEnany said during an appearance on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.”

She added: “This president is out and about, reopening the country, demonstrating his respect for the American people by actually going to places where Americans are hurting. He’ll always show up. That’s what this president has done for four years and he’ll continue to do. This president will go to Kenosha, Wisconsin. He loves the people of Wisconsin, and he looks forward to speaking directly to them and unifying the state.”
