Jacob Blake’s Family Rebukes Trump’s Visit
At the corner where Mr. Blake was shot, hundreds gathered for a “Justice for Jake” rally to promote community healing and to rebuke President Trump’s visit to Kenosha, Wis.
We know why Trump is here in Kenosha today. It is the same reason he visited Portland. He is here to sow chaos and fear. We reject these attempts to divide us. We will not act from a place of fear. We do not need more pain and division from a president who is putting his own re-election ahead of the needs of our city and the American people. As a community, we are gathered together today with resolve because we believe a better future is possible. By coming together just as we have done in the past, we can bring our country closer to its promise of liberty, justice and freedom for all. We need a president that’s going to unite our country and take us in a different direction. Should he have come today? It’s a free country. We can go anywhere we want. We want the same rights he got, and we want to be able to get our children home safely because they should be able to go anywhere in this nation and come back home safely and not get shot seven times.
