Monday morning, Don Jr. blasted Joe Biden’s recent rhetoric opposite rioting and violence.
Trump Jr. wrote “Sorry @JoeBiden, but you can’t claim to oppose riots and crime when your campaign is literally on the record bailing violent rioters out of jail!!! #BidenRiots ”
Don Jr. then linked a Reuters article “Biden staff donate to group that pays bail in riot-torn Minneapolis.” The group is the “Minnesota Freedom Fund” and they have since bailed out people charged with murder, violent felonies, and sex crimes.

Per Fox9 News:
Among those bailed out by the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) is a suspect who shot at police, a woman accused of killing a friend, and a twice convicted sex offender, according to court records reviewed by the FOX 9 Investigators.
According to attempted murder charges, Jaleel Stallings shot at members of a SWAT Team during the riots in May. Police recovered a modified pistol that looks like an AK-47. MFF paid $75,000 in cash to get Stallings out of jail.
Darnika Floyd is charged with second degree murder, for stabbing a friend to death. MFF paid $100,000 cash for her release.
Christopher Boswell, a twice convicted rapist, is currently charged with kidnapping, assault, and sexual assault in two separate cases. MFF paid $350,00 [sic] in cash for his release.
The Reuters article from May 30th reads:
At least 13 Biden campaign staff members posted on Twitter on Friday and Saturday that they made donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which opposes the practice of cash bail, or making people pay to avoid pre-trial imprisonment. The group uses donations to pay bail fees in Minneapolis.
Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement to Reuters that the former vice president opposes the institution of cash bail as a “modern day debtors prison.”
The Minnesota Freedom fund was also promoted by Kamala Harris herself.
On May 30th, the fund tweeted explicitly “Defund the Police” a platform that Biden and Harris says they do not support.
Just some of the many Hollywood celebrities that also promoted the Minnesota Freedom fund include Steve Carell, Chrissy Teigan, Cynthia Nixon, and Seth Rogen.
The Trump War Room tweeted Monday morning:
Jaleel Stallings is a would-be cop killer who was in jail for firing at police during “peaceful protests.”
Now he’s free thanks in part to Biden campaign officials who donated to pay bail fees.
Will Joe Biden apologize for helping put cops in danger?
Jaleel Stallings is a would-be cop killer who was in jail for firing at police during "peaceful protests."
Now he's free thanks in part to Biden campaign officials who donated to pay bail fees.
