Transcript for Trump doesn't mention Jacob Blake in Kenosha visit
But we begin with president trump back at the white house after his tense visit to Kenosha, Wisconsin. The president making startling claims about law enforcement and protesters. Senior white house correspondent Cecilia Vega joins us with the very latest. Good morning, Cecilia. Reporter: Amy, good morning to you and the president made this trip over the objection of local leaders like the mayor and governor and said he wanted to go there to unite a divided city but while he was on the ground in Kenosha, he never once said the name Jacob Blake. On a charred block president trump pushing his law and order rallying cry. A thing like this should never happen. Reporter: Coming to the defense of police. You have some bad apples. We all know that and those will be taken care of through the system and nobody is going to be easy on them either. You have people that joke. They're under tremendous pressure. Reporter: When asked if he believes there is systemic racism he went after protesters instead. You have anarchist and you have the looters and you have the rioters. Agitators. You have all types and that's what you should be focusing on with your question. Reporter: On that visit president trump did not meet with the family of Jacob Blake shot by police seven times in the back. His uncle telling ABC's Alex Perez they're fine with it. We're not mad. He's got an agenda and we got one too. Reporter: But the president is defending 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse accused of killing two demonstrators in the Kenosha protests. This morning, Rittenhouse remains in custody as his lawyer posted in video on Twitter sharing what he says is a jailhouse message from the teenager. I just want to thank every single of you from the bottom of my heart for the underlying support. It's just amazing. Just want to let you know I'll be out of here soon. Reporter: The president digging in on his claim that so-called thugs dressed in dark clothing plotted to fly to the Republican national convention to incite unrest but provide nothing evidence. The entire plane filled up with the looters, the anarchist, rioters, people looking for trouble. Reporter: His rival Joe Biden exasperated. Look, this president from the moment he came down the escalator in his fancy hotel in New York has been preaching division and hate. We've got to return to some sense of decency in America. Reporter: Now, president trump has been on an early morning tweet storm. Among his targets, election day. He says he is resurfacing this unfounded claim this will be the most corrupt election in American history. We are just 62 days out under that backdrop where he commemorates the end of world War II and North Carolina, of course, a crucial battleground state as also was Wisconsin where he was yesterday.
