Biden blames Trump for "stoking violence in our cities" in Pittsburgh speech

Biden blames Trump for

"Violent protests against racial injustice erupted last week in Kenosha in Wisconsin and elsewhere in the United States after police shot 29-year-old Jacob Blake, an African American man, in the back seven times".

The former vice president also highlighted the nation is facing multiple crises at once.

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has asked Trump not to visit, citing fear of greater tensions.

In her article, Goldberg claims that Trump's words and actions are meant to incite and "cheer" more violence because "his interests served by the destruction of civic peace".

He said that "the rioters and Joe Biden have one side".

On Monday, Biden left his campaign-from-home bubble in DE to travel to Pittsburgh to parry Trump's attacks amid increasing nervousness among Democrats that the President's hardline approach could lift him back into a race in which he is trailing.

"Some polls, indeed, had large, problematic errors, but many polls did not", the analysis said, concluding that "there is no partisan favoritism in USA polling", but rather a series of technical factors combined to lead many pollsters to underestimate support for Trump and reach the wrong conclusion.

In a characteristic piece of projection, he accused Biden - who earlier condemned violence from all sources - of using Mafia talking points and Democrats of stirring disorder with "dangerous rhetoric".

Mr Trump has blamed Portland's Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler for unrest in the city, and suggested that he will send in federal forces.

"The violence you're seeing in Donald Trump's America". Biden said. "We need justice in America". These are not images from some imagined "Joe Biden's America" in the future.

Trump will travel to Kenosha on Tuesday to address the unrest. And after centering his candidacy on Trump's mishandling of the pandemic, Biden is making a broader push to argue that Americans won't be safe if Trump wins reelection. While accusing Trump of "rooting for chaos and violence", Biden said Trump's failings on the pandemic, on foreign policy and even on Social Security had made Americans much more vulnerable.

It is the first recent poll showing Trump ahead and claims that in key swing states the gap is even bigger with 49 percent for Trump versus 42 percent for Biden, saying the result shows Trump has "an nearly unassailable seven point lead".

The president remained silent of Blake's shooting for days following the incident, only breaking his silence Friday in an interview with ABC affiliate WMUR, saying "It was not a good sight, I didn't like the sight of it certainly and most people would agree with that". Biden and his running mate, California Sen. Kamala Harris, have spoken at length with Blake's family over the telephone.

"He will meet with law enforcement and survey damage from recent riots", White House spokesman Judd Deere said. He is claiming he ordered National Guard troops into the city to quell rioting and restore order.

The political controversy over Kenosha is turning into a microcosm of the election in one of the most hotly contested districts in one of the most contested states.

Mr Trump has sought to project himself as the law and order candidate in November's election, painting the Democrats and Mr Biden as soft on crime and on the violence that has sometimes flared at anti-racism protests. "I condemn violence of every kind by anyone, whether on the left or the right. Period", Biden said in a statement.
