This is what he said…
During Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” President Trump issued a statement stating that he does not want supporters to approach protestors and rioters. He stated that the law enforcement should be the ones confronting them.
Trump also added that he knows his supporters don’t want to see more violence, which is probably why they are taking action with their own hands, but they should let law enforcement be the ones to apprehend the violent people.
Host Laura Ingraham had asked Trump, “[D]o you want your supporters to confront the left-wing protesters, or do you want to leave it to law enforcement?”
He responded saying, “No. No, I don’t want them. I want to leave it to law enforcement. But my supporters are wonderful, hard-working, tremendous people. And they turn on their television set, and they look at a Portland, or they look at a Kenosha, before I got involved and stopped it, or they look at Chicago, where 78 people were shot last weekend and numerous people died, or they look at New York, where violence is up by like, what? 150%. … They’re looking at all of this, and they can’t believe it.”
