Trump is unique and it seems anything involving Trump goes against conventional wisdom and historical precedence. I should have learned that a long time ago. Trump trying to be the law and order candidate seems to have backfired on him. As usual he overdoes it. Trump's overall approval has dropped from 46.5% down to 43.5% since 25 May along with only 32% of Americans approving of his handling of the protests, 51% disapprove.
In the past during protests that have turned violent, turned into riots with looting, burning and killing, the law and order folks have benefited. Not this time. At least not as yet anyway. I seem to have been wrong on this by looking back to historical similar events.
It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
