President Donald Trump met with business owners affected by the riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Tuesday outside a building burned-out by violent rioters last week in reaction to the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
The president spoke with about six people next to a burned-out building that used to be B&L Office Furniture Inc. in Kenosha and told them he would help them rebuild their businesses.
“This store was here 109 years,” Trump told reporters. “Just about the oldest in the nation.”
Scott Carpenter, the co-owner of the office furniture store, thanked Trump for visiting.
“I just appreciate President Trump coming today; everybody here does,” he said. “We’re so thankful that we got the federal troops in to help because once they got here, things did calm down quite a bit.” Read the rest and see more photos HERE.
