Donald Trump delivered his “law and order” speech in Wisconsin on Tuesday. Trump spoke in West Bend, in heavily Republican Washington County, but much of his focus was on Milwaukee.
“The violence, riots and destruction that have taken place in Milwaukee is an assault on the right of all citizens to live in security, and to live in peace,” Trump said. “Crime and violence is an assault on the poor, and will never be tolerated in a Trump administration.”
Trump appealed to African-American voters, who he says Democrats have failed. “The Hillary Clinton agenda hurts poor people by far the most. There is no compassion in allowing gang members, drug dealers and felons to prey on innocent people,” the Republican nominee said.
“I’ll make sure we deliver safe neighborhoods here in Milwaukee – and Milwaukee has got so many problems, so many problems,” Trump said. “The world is watching, not only here in Milwaukee but across the country.”
Trump was introduced by Governor Scott Walker, marking the first time the Republican governor has appeared at a campaign event with his party’s presidential nominee. “There are two names, and only two names that will be on the ballot on November 8th who can be elected the next President of the United States. One is Hillary Clinton,” Walker said to a chorus of boos. “The other is Donald Trump.”
