Nasty Trump Claims That Without Him, ‘There Would Be No Kenosha Right Now’

Donald Trump threatened Monday to send in the National Guard to Portland as he claimed credit for ending the violence in Kenosha, Wisconsin after troops were mobilizing there as civil unrest continues to ravage the country in the form of violent riots.

“If I didn’t INSIST on having the National Guard activate and go into Kenosha, Wisconsin, there would be no Kenosha right now,” Trump tweeted Monday morning. “Also, there would have been great death and injury. I want to thank Law Enforcement and the National Guard. I will see you on Tuesday!”

Yes, Trump claims he alone is the reason the city is still standing today. That’s some serious narcissism, folks.

Trump is preparing to visit Kenosha on Tuesday, despite Democratic leaders there, including the governor and mayor, demanding the president say away.

Trump threatened Monday morning to send in federal troops or deploy the National Guard to Portland if Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler doesn’t do so on his own.

“Portland is a mess, and it has been for many years. If this joke of a mayor doesn’t clean it up, we will go in and do it for them!” Trump said in another tweet Monday morning.

He added in another tweet: “LAW & ORDER!”

Twitter was absolutely sickened that Trump is obviously trying to stir up violence.
