US Elections 2020 LIVE UPDATES: United States President Donald Trump Tuesday visited Kenosha (Wisconsin) – the site of latest eruption over racial injustice in the country and supported law enforcement, blaming ‘domestic terror’ for the violence in the state.

In his address, Trump did not mention the Afro-American man Jacob Blake, who was left paralysed after being shot in the back seven times by an officer last week in Kenosha.

Earlier on Monday, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden called for rioters and looters to be prosecuted, and slammed President Donald Trump for stoking violence in American cities gripped by protests over police brutality and racial inequality. Biden’s speech in battleground state Pennsylvania was his most forceful counter yet to accusations by Trump that he is weak on crime and that leaders in his Democratic Party have lost control over the mass demonstrations that in some instances have turned violent, Reuters reported.

“Rioting is not protesting. Looting is not protesting. Setting fires is not protesting,” Biden said from a converted steel mill in Pittsburgh. “It’s lawlessness, plain and simple, and those who do it should be prosecuted.”
