OnFocus – In a letter to President Trump, Governor Tony Evers “respectfully asked” Trump to reconsider Tuesday’s scheduled Kenosha visit.
“These past few months, from managing a pandemic to facing entrenched racial disparities and inequities, our state—like so many others—has faced unimaginable challenges. But this past week has been particularly difficult,” Evers wrote. “Kenosha and communities across Wisconsin are enduring extraordinary grief, grappling with a Black man being shot seven times and the loss of two additional lives on Tuesday night at the hands of an out-of-state armed militant.”
Evers referenced his own visit to Kenosha and expressed concern that the President’s visit would deter healing.
“I, along with other community leaders who have reached out, are concerned about what your presence will mean for Kenosha and our state,” he wrote. “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.”
