Trump's Kenosha Visit: President doesn't address systemic racism

When asked whether systemic racism is a problem in the United States during his trip to Kenosha on Tuesday, President Trump refused to answer the question directly and instead focussed on "violence we've seen in Portland and here and other places."

"The fact is that we've seen tremendous violence and we will put it out very, very quickly if given the chance," so Trump.

Addressing whether there is a need for structural change to the law enforcement, he said: "Well I think the people are calling for structural change. And then you take the people of Kenosha that aren't here and that you won't see and that aren't protesting, but they want change also. They want to see law and order. That's the change they want. They want the police to be police."

"They want people that are going to keep them safe, where their houses aren't broken into. Where they're not raped and murdered. That's what they want. And they're protesters, too, but they don't walk down the street... so, you know, just the way it is," he added.
