BREAKING: Shots Fired During Kenosha BLM Riots After Democrat Governor Reportedly Refused Federal Help

Protestors run for cover as police shoots teargas in an effort to disperse the crowd outside the County Courthouse during demonstrations against the shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin on August 25, 2020. - The mother of a black man shot repeatedly in the back by Wisconsin police called August 25 for calm after two nights of violent protests, as her lawyer said it would take a "miracle" for her son to walk again.
Shootings reportedly broke out in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Tuesday night after the state’s Democrat governor had reportedly refused help from the Trump administration to stop the violence.
This latest development in Kenosha, which has a Democrat mayor, comes after Gov. Tony Evers (D) reportedly refused help from the Trump administration that law enforcement said that they needed to maintain peace.“I got a call today from congressman who represents that district, and from Senator Johnson as well, really just pleading for help, saying that the local sheriff and the mayor and police chief need some additional assistance,” White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said. “I got on the phone right away and offered assistance in the form of additional National Guard help.”
Meadows added, “The president was on the phone with the governor today … we have National Guard standing by, and if the general for the National Guard [in Kenosha] needs additional help, we’re there to do it, but today, that request was denied by the governor.”
President Donald Trump even tweeted out about on Tuesday evening: “Governor should call in the National Guard in Wisconsin. It is ready, willing, and more than able. End problem FAST!”
