Fox News aide Trey Gowdy insulted Wisconsin Democratic Governor Tony Evers on Monday after urging President Trump to reconsider his plans to travel to Kenosha on Tuesday.
In an interview with The Daily Briefing, Gowdy said people with a “good conscience” would honor Trump’s planned visit, during which he was expected to assess the damage caused by the riots that followed the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
“80 percent of Americans don’t see this problem as a black-and-white, Republican-Democrat, it’s an American problem,” said Gaudí, a former chairman of the House Oversight Committee.
The argument can be divided into “people with a good conscience versus those who don’t have a good conscience,” Gody said, “and people with a good conscience didn’t mind when President Obama came and helped us heal in Charleston. [after the Emanuel AME Church shooting in 2015]. I don’t think they would mind if President Trump made an effort to show respect for Jacob Blake and his family. That’s what presidents do. “
Over the weekend, Evers called on Trump to cancel his planned visit, citing fears that the president’s trip “would only hinder our healing” and delay “our work to bridge the divide and move forward together.”
White House spokeswoman Kaylee McEnnany defended Monday’s visit, saying: “This president is appearing” to “hurt” communities.
“He showed up this weekend in Texas, he showed up in Louisiana, he showed up in Kenosha tomorrow,” she said.
“Whether people like it or not, Donald Trump is president and … he went to Louisiana and Texas [after Hurricane Laura], “Gowdy agreed.” Did Democrats have a problem with this after the hurricane? That’s what presidents do. “

President Trump “did not shoot anyone, did not set fire to anything and did not shoot anyone,” Gaudi argued.
“The reality is, they just don’t want him to be president.”
