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!!!"

CNN anchors Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo sounded the alarm about new polling that shows the Democrats' chances of winning in November are slipping away due to the riots.

Lemon pleaded with Democratic nominee Joe Biden to do something about Black Lives Matter activists because the ongoing riots are hurting the Democrats' chances in the upcoming elections.

Lemon cited polling that shows Americans are turning away from the Democratic Party after months of anti-police rioting following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Kenosha, Wisconsin exploded like a powder keg after an unarmed Black man was shot 7 times in the back by a police officer on Sunday.

Kenosha residents and business owners armed themselves and fired "warning shots" at protesters on Tuesday night. 2 protesters, both white males, were shot dead and one wounded in separate shootings.

Liberals are finally realizing that supporting rioters may not be the best strategy to win the election.

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo said, "I think [the riots] probably represents the biggest threat to the Democratic cause."

Lemon agreed, saying, "Kenosha is a Rorschach test for the entire country, and I think this is a blind spot for Democrats. I think Democrats are ignoring this problem or hoping that it will go away, and it's not going to go away."

He pushed Biden to come out of his basement and talk to Americans. But Biden previously said he supports the protesters and he has not condemned the riots.

Lemon suggested Biden's absence from the campaign trail - and his lack of leadership during the rioting - will have dire consequences.

Biden has said he plans to campaign from his basement until the November elections.

"Unless someone comes up with a solution... in the next 68 days -- the problem is not going to be fixed by then," said Lemon. "But what they can do -- and I think maybe Joe Biden may be afraid to do it -- he's gotta address it. He's gotta come out and talk about it. He's gotta do a speech like Barack Obama did about race. He's gotta come out and tell people that he is going to deal with the issue of police reform in this country, and that what's happening now is happening under Donald Trump's watch."

Lemon added: "The rioting has to stop. Chris, as you know and I know, it's showing up in the polling. It's showing up in focus groups. It is the only thing — it is the only thing right now that is sticking."
