Biden: Trump ‘Incitement’ Led to Death of Supporter in Portland

August 31, 2020

In a statement issued Sunday, Joe Biden blamed the shooting death in Portland, Oregon of a Trump supporter on President Trump’s own “incitement.”

“We must not become a country at war with ourselves,” Biden wrote. “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.” That America is one Marxist revolutionaries, not Trump, have created.

“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 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.”

This is shameful projection. For months Biden and his fellow leftists refused to call on their supporters to stop the burning and looting of Democrat cities, and now they blame him for inciting it all.
