Joe Biden thinks he knows who is responsible for the killing of the Trump supporter who was recently shot at a protest. Biden claims the guilty party is none other than Donald Trump himself.
In a long statement consisting mostly of Trump-blame, Biden accused the President of “recklessly encouraging violence:”
We must not become a country at war with ourselves. A country that accepts the killing of fellow Americans who do not agree with you. A country that vows vengeance toward one another. But that is the America that President Trump wants us to be, the America he believes we are.
As a country, we must condemn the incitement of hate and resentment that led to this deadly clash. It is not a peaceful protest when you out go out spoiling for a fight. What does President Trump think will happen when he continues to insist on fanning the flames of hate and division in our society and using the politics of fear to whip up his supporters? He is recklessly encouraging violence. He may believe that tweeting about law and order makes him strong — but his failure to call on supporters to stop seeking violence shows just how weak he is.
Here’s @JoeBiden‘s statement on the violence in Portland:
“All of us are less safe because Donald Trump can’t do the job of the American president.”

Biden continued, “All of us are less safe because Donald Trump can’t do the job of the American president.”
To imply that Donald Trump is somehow responsible for creating the lawless environment that began this chain of events reveals a stunning disconnect from reality…even by Joe Biden’s standards.
