This has only made things worse.
In a recent interview with Fox’s Neil Cavuto, Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) warned Democrats that their plan to allow rioting and violence in their cities to make President Trump look like a poor leader has completely backfired on them.
According to Breitbart, Buck stated, “I think they are supporting anarchy because they want to show that — or they hope to show that the president cannot govern. And I think they’re absolutely ending up with the exact opposite. It is the big city mayors that are unable to govern.”
“The president has acted in a responsible and measured way to deal with this violence, but the folks that are funding this, I think, are going to wake up on November 4, and sadly, realize — sadly for them — realize that these efforts have backfired,” Buck stated. “Americans are sick and tired of this violence.”
“I absolutely believe they have a political agenda that’s hurting the president,” Buck stated. “I have just finished traveling the state of Colorado to help various Republican candidates. And I can tell you, it is absolutely backfiring. Gun sales are up. And the sales for new gun buyers, first-time gun buyers are up significantly. The folks are concerned about sending their kids to school. They’re concerned about people traveling into the cities for work. I think there is a very serious risk of backlash here.”
