Trump Repeats Debunked Claim About “Entire Plane Filled Up With Looters, The Anarchists, Rioters” [VIDEO]

The Washington Post reports:

As he headed to Kenosha, Wis., on Tuesday, Trump derided the city’s mayor as “very stupid” for sympathizing with protesters and said he believed his trip highlighting the work of law enforcement would be good for healing racial tensions.

“I think it’s helping because I’m about law and order, and if you look at the Black community, they want the police to help them stop crime,” Trump told reporters at Joint Base Andrews before boarding Air Force One. “The Hispanic community, they want police … they don’t want crime. They don’t want to be mugged. They don’t want to have any problems.”

Trump also held open the possibility that he would meet with the family of Jacob Blake, the 29-year-old Black man whose shooting in the back by Kenosha police has sparked protests and unrest. The White House had previously said such a meeting is not in the works, and Blake’s father has said he is not interested in speaking to Trump.
