President Donald Trump took aim at Joe Biden on Thursday during his Republican National Convention speech, mocking the former vice president’s attempt to condemn ongoing leftist violence. “Joe Biden and his supporters remained completely silent about the rioters and criminals spreading mayhem in Democrat-run cities. They never even mentioned it during their entire convention,” Trump said. The president accused the Biden campaign and Biden himself of speaking up, finally, for political reasons. “Now, they’re starting to mention it because their poll numbers are going down like a rock in water,” Trump said. “Too late, Joe.” Trump spoke about the weeks of violent left-wing protests, looting, and arsonists taking advantage of civil unrest to create anarchy in America’s major cities. “Joe Biden’s campaign did not condemn it; they donated to it,” Trump said, recalling members of Biden’s campaign publicly trumpeting their donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which helped bail out arrested protesters and agitators in Minneapolis. “At least 13 members of Joe Biden’s campaign staff donated to a fund to bail out vandals, arsonists, anarchists, looters, and rioters from jail,” he said. Instead, Trump pointed to the death of retired police Captain David Dorn, who was shot and killed during the riots in Saint Louis while trying to protect a store from being looted. Dorn’s family was present in the audience, including his wife, Ann, who spoke during the convention. “To each of you: we will never forget the heroic legacy of Captain David Dorn,” Trump said.
Hey Joe, why didn’t you condemn the violence from Day One? Why didn’t you tell your Democrat mayor and governor pals to accept federal assistance? Because you thought riots would help you win. Now you know it’s your undoing. https://t.co/lp6UmHK1KI— Laura Ingraham (@IngrahamAngle) August 28, 2020

There's too much b-roll of Democrats and CNN supporting ANTIFA and riots.— Cernovich (@Cernovich) August 27, 2020
The footage is already "in the can," as we say.
No amount of "backsies" is going to change those supercut videos and highlight reels we are doing, directly connecting the media to ANTIFA.
All of the sudden Democrats realize riots aren’t polling well. https://t.co/aYKCn6XaBT— Rosie memos (@almostjingo) August 26, 2020
The only thing that matters to Democrats about the riots is how they poll. https://t.co/BoI9bmuwau— Nick Searcy, INTERNATIONAL FILM & TELEVISION STAR (@yesnicksearcy) August 26, 2020

Let that sink in.
Joe Biden is too weak to stand up to the anarchists!
"If the Democrat Party wants to stand with anarchists, agitators and flag burners, that’s up to them. But I as your president will not be a part of it. The Republican Party will remain the voice of the patriotic heroes who keep America safe and salute the American flag." pic.twitter.com/ZPESA2Ymwt— (((Jason Rantz))) on KTTH Radio (@jasonrantz) August 28, 2020
