During a virtual conference on Saturday, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden tried to make his case as to why he would do a better job over the military as Commander in Chief versus President Donald Trump. However, Biden appeared to suggest that the anarchists, rioters, and violent protesters are peaceful.

“By standing and recommending that you should be deployed to ‘dominate’ your fellow citizens for exercising their rights to peacefully protest and threatening if the governors didn’t do something, [President Trump] would,” Biden said, without mentioning or condemning the violent protesters. “You know, we’re so much better than this. … I’ll never use the military as a prop or as a private militia to violate rights of fellow citizens. That’s not law and order.”

Joe Biden’s remarks in part:

Most recently, the Commander in Chief made it clear he was more than willing to send in troops to Kenosha on Tuesday: “Governor should call in the National Guard in Wisconsin. It is ready, willing, and more than able. End problem FAST!” he tweeted Tuesday night.

The president said that Wisconsin Democratic Governor Tony Evers accepted the offer of federal assistance Wednesday, an offer he had declined, however, on Tuesday.

“We will NOT stand for looting, arson, violence, and lawlessness on American streets,” President Trump said declared on Twitter Wednesday afternoon. “I will be sending federal law enforcement and the National Guard to Kenosha, WI to restore LAW and ORDER!”

The president also noted on Saturday morning that it is has been “very quiet” in Kenosha “since the National Guard has shown up”, and at the same time, he alerted the Portland mayor “if lives are endangered, we’re going in!”

Meanwhile, Republicans unleased a video ad showing some of the recent chaos and unrest, which Democrats have not specially condemned, namely the mob who harassed Republicans after the 4th night of the GOP convention when leaving the White House.
