Vitriol against the president and his ‘demeanor’ fits exactly the mold of radicals, rioters, looters, anarchists and cowardly Black Lives Matter hyenas now nightly assaulting American values and rule of law in U.S. cities. Mayors and governors in Oregon and other states have abandoned their oaths of office to support (in fact, they even encourage) these acts of sedition by so-called “protesters.” In contrast, by upholding the oath of office every president takes, President Trump has acted decisively and well within his authority to send federal troops to cities of mayhem to protect federal property, law-abiding private citizens and private property from mobs brazened and cheered on by the nonfeasance of their elected officials.

President Trump’s acts of leadership, especially during this year of extreme crises and polarization, demonstrate his resolve to move in the best interests of Americans and to stand up to feckless governors and mayors, lawless mobs and media elites. These are qualities of a man of intelligence and psychological stability that are not possessed by Joe Biden, who would wilt under such pressure.
