Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has written a letter to President Trump urging him to reconsider his planned trip to Kenosha Tuesday.
Trump is scheduled to survey the damage and destruction that has resulted in rioting and meet with law enforcement.
In his letter to Trump, Evers writes “I, along with other community leaders who have reached out, are concerned about what your presence will mean for Kenosha and our state. I am concerned your presence will only hinder our healing. I am concerned your presence will only delay our work to overcome division and move forward together.”
he continues “I am likewise concerned that an in-person visit from you will require a massive re-direction of these resources to support your visit at a time when it is critical that we continue to remain focused on keeping the people of Kenosha safe and supporting the community’s response,” Evers continued.”
