President Trump visits scene of continuing protests over shootings of black men September 2 at 5:05 a.m.
U.S. President Trump visited the scene of continuing protests against a black man being shot from behind by a police officer and stressed his stance of cracking down on radical activities that took part in the protests. There has been a movement against the visit, with President Trump causing division, and political conflicts have deepened.
In Midwestern Wisconsin, a black man, Jacob Blake, was shot seven times last month by police officers at close range, and buildings and other buildings were destroyed in part.
President Trump visited the site one day to inspect stores and headquarters burned by arson, and said police officers should “resolutely act” and stressed his stance of cracking down on radical activities that took part in protest.
In a park in the heart of the city, supporters of the president and those opposed to the president’s visit, together with hundreds of people, gathered to advocate for re-election for “another four years,” whereas opponents complained that “the president is dividing society.”
In the run-up to the presidential election, President Trump is lying in the run-up to the presidential election, complaining that the confusion is due to insufficient response from the governors of the opposition democratic Party of Japan and to appeal for a thorough stance to maintain security.
Meanwhile, the opposition Democratic Party of Japan has been repulsed by President Trump’s opposition to the issue of racism, as he defends his police position and fuels confrontation, deepening political conflict.
According to the demonstrators, the scene of the arson attack was
At a used car dealership in the center of the city, nearly 100 used cars were burned down by arson seen by demonstrators, leaving only the frame of the car body.
In addition, stores that sell office furniture also have their roofs collapsed and the interior of the building is in a state of being open.
According to the owner of the furniture store, Scott Carpenter, the damage amounted to more than 100 million yen in Japanese yen.
Carpenter said, “I want President Trump to see what happens if the local authorities don’t put in police and troops. There is freedom of expression, and it is not a bad thing to protest, but you have no right to destroy people’s lives or possessions. If you do that, you’ll lose the cause of the protest.”
One local man said, “I don’t know if President Trump’s visit will add oil to the fire or improve the situation, but I don’t think it’s a good thing. This community needs to heal its wounds.”
On the other hand, a man who supports President Trump said, “There has not been enough media coverage of the act of sabotunding throughout the city. I think that the president’s coming and reporting in the media conveys to the world that looting and arson are happening in protests against racial discrimination. This would not have happened if the governor had held the demonstration,” he said, welcoming the president’s visit.
