President Donald Trump announced he will visit Wisconsin this week after a Black man was shot 7 times in the back by a Kenosha cop.

But Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has asked Trump to reconsider coming to Kenosha amid the ongoing conflict that includes 2 deaths and a teenager being charged with murder.

In a letter to Trump on Sunday, Evers expressed his concern, saying Trump's visit to Kenosha will "only hinder" the healing process.

"Now is not the time for divisiveness," Evers, who is a registered Democrat, wrote.

"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. 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."]

A Trump visit, Evers added, could "delay" the city's efforts to "overcome division" and progress as a community.

"Now is not the time for divisiveness," Evers added. "Now is not the time for elected officials to ignore armed militants and out-of-state instigators who want to contribute to our anguish."

Trump responded to Evers' request on Twitter.com on Monday morning.

"If I didn't INSIST on having the National Guard activate and go into Kenosha, Wisconsin, there would be no Kenosha right now," he tweeted. "Also, there would have been great death and injury. I want to thank Law Enforcement and the National Guard. I will see you on Tuesday!"

2 minutes later, he tweeted a message to the mayor of Portland, Oregon, where riots have continued for over 90 days: "Portland is a mess, and it has been for many years. If this joke of a mayor doesn't clean it up, we will go in and do it for them!"

In one invitation to a "Vicky" party, Barnes referred to women as "ratchet" and said security would be there "handin' out free choke slams and sleeper holds!!!"
