President Trump has deployed National Guard troops to a Wisconsin city where at least two people have died as the result of riots.
President Donald Trump has said that he is sending federal law enforcement to Kenosha, Wisconsin, in order to police the rioting that has broken out in the city following the shooting of Jacob Blake by Kenosha police on Sunday.
"We will NOT stand for looting, arson, violence, and lawlessness on American streets," Trump said on Twitter Wednesday afternoon. "I will be sending federal law enforcement and the National Guard to Kenosha, WI to restore LAW and ORDER!"
