White House: Biden's Kenosha Trip 'Too Little, Too Late'

Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden's planned trip to Kenosha, Wisconsin, days after President Donald Trump's visit on Tuesday is "too little, too late," White House deputy press secretary Brian Morgenstern said Wednesday. 

"It is unfortunate that violence and rioting and President Trump taking that seriously is finally what will get a Democratic presidential candidate to visit the people of Wisconsin," Morgenstern said on Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "It is sad that that's what it takes. We're glad the Democrats are finally taking it seriously. It's just that President Trump has been speaking about this for months."

But Biden, he said, is only now "finally acknowledging" the violence in America's cites after "their entire convention ignored it and after the president visited this city to highlight the damage done and to highlight the federal support."

Morgenstern also called it "unfortunate" that politics is behind the decision for Biden and his wife, Jill, to visit Kenosha, as opposed to Trump, who "is just trying to help citizens secure their communities and restore safety in the streets." 

Biden has been blaming Trump for the violence happening in the nation's streets, but Morgenstern said the president has been standing up for law and order while Democrats ignored it and to blame Trump now "makes no sense."

He also criticized the claims being made that the reason Trump was taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center last fall was because he'd suffered mini-strokes, a claim the president, his doctor, and the White House strongly denied. 

"It's amazing what certain people will stoop to to just make up events that didn't happen," said Morgenstern. "This has been addressed well in the past. The president had a physical. I think there were a couple different visits to complete the physical. There is no merit to this motion that the president was suffering from any difficulties. He is fine. I think that he made that clear."
