Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has “panicked and prevailed” over the riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., Said Monday.
“He will not campaign until next week. He felt the need to come out with an exquisite statement yesterday that did not call on Democratic mayors to allow the police to enforce the law or on Democratic governors to use the National Guard when necessary, but simply called for a firm statement. ” Cotton told Fox & Friends.
Cotton said it was a “flawless guide” that former Vice President Biden would offer as president of the United States.
“Not law enforcement, not the use of force where necessary to deter this kind of violence, but just words on paper.”

Cotton has reacted to Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers, a Democrat who has criticized President Trump, urging the president to rethink Tuesday’s trip to Kenosha, where recent protests against police brutality have erupted in deadly riots in recent days.
“I, along with other community leaders who have spoken out, are concerned about what your presence will mean for Kenosha and our country,” Evers wrote in a letter to Trump. “I am worried that your presence will only hinder our “I am concerned that your presence will only slow down our work to overcome the division and move forward together,” Evers wrote in a letter received from the Associated Press.
Biden also condemned the Kenosha violence following the shooting of Jacob Blake on Wednesday, saying “unnecessary violence will not cure us”.
The former vice president’s comments come amid days of unrest in Kenosha after 29-year-old Blake, a black man, was shot nearby by city police, leaving him partially paralyzed.

Cotton shot Biden and his aide, Sen. Kamala Harris, of California, for being linked to individuals who donated to the Minnesota Freedom Fund.
“Joe Biden’s employees in his campaign contributed to the Minnesota Freedom Fund. Kamala Harris encouraged her followers to contribute to the Minnesota Freedom Fund. This fund offers a guarantee for a serial rapist, murderers and other violent criminals who are now on the streets because of the worldview of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. “
Cotton concluded, “This is the kind of world they will bring to the White House – so America would be dangerous under President Biden.”
