President Donald Trump talks during an incident on the Opioid crisis in the West House's Eastern Room on Wednesday. WASHINGTON…
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump on Wednesday asked politicians to stop questioning their opponents moral character by using a rally in Wisconsin to demand more civilian hours after a series of suspicious packages were sent to democrats and media.
“No nation can succeed tolerating violence,” Trump said, breaking script from his usual high-party conversation to discuss the packages. “The moral condemnation and destructive routine, there are arguments and disagreements that must end. Those involved in the political arena must stop treating political opponents as morally defective.”
Trump gave a share of the debt for the current political climate on the media.
“The media also have a responsibility to put a civil tone and to stop infinite hostility and constantly negative and often false attacks and stories,” Trump told the audience. “They must stop.”
The President’s remarks interrupted the usual natural flow to each rally.
Trump regularly criticizes the “fake news” media, “obstruktivist” Democrats, and quietly stops as supporters chant “attract her” with reference to Hillary Clinton.

On Wednesday hours before a Trump rally in Wisconsin, several of the president’s favorite verbal socks became targets of very real threats.
A series of suspect entities, including pipe bombs, were sent to prominent democracies and across the country and to CNN’s New York office. Earlier, President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were given a threat. Packages were also sent to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Liberal Philanthropist George Soros and California Democratic Congress Woman Maxine Waters.
Everyone has pulled the drum and each has made their speech and Twitter feed through the years.
Who has New York officials called terrorist acts, what is the President’s message to Wednesday night in Wisconsin?
“I hope this is an alarm clock and changes rhetoric,” said Jacob Neiheisel, associate professor of political science at the University of Buffalo. “But I do not know if it comes”.
Nejheisel said it is likely that the person behind the attacks suffers from some type of mental illness, it is not difficult to link up the divisions in the country, hear the President’s attacks on these individuals and take it as a call for action.
“It does not take much for anyone to hear this rhetoric and take it too far,” he said. “This is an alarm clock for everyone. You do not know who will hear your words and it as an invitation.”
President Donald Trump promises that “acts or threats of political violence have no place in the United States”. He spoke after several reports of suspicious devices were sent to Democrats, media companies and prominent individuals. (October 24)
The President’s rhetoric has been inflammatory since he announced his candidacy for president.
Trump’s career as a conservative politician took off when he demanded Obama’s birth certificate and helped spread a conspiracy that the president was not born in America. He continued the attacks, blaming the country’s problem with the former president, including Obama’s “founding” ISIS.
CNN has also been a common goal for Trump’s “fake news” barbs. Last year, the president tried a video about himself to deal with a person with a CNN logo on his face. A “CNN sucks” chant also broke out on a Monday campaign rally.
“Unlock her” chants has been a constant on almost every rally with the mention of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who ran against Trump in 2016 elections.
Trump, before signing opioid abuse legislation during a ceremony at the White House, promised to “get to the bottom” by who sent the package and why. He also had a message of unity.
“I just want to say that in these times we have to unite,” said Trump. “We must come together and send a very clear, strong, unambiguous message that acts or threats of political violence of some kind have no place in the United States.”
But some said that the dimmed rhetoric would not last.
“People have for years wondered whether the president would change or tone down his rhetoric when time passed but we have not seen it happen”, says Gregory Shufeldt, Professor of Political Science at Butler University. “We are two years in the Trump Bureau and it shows us nothing will change.”
Shufeldt said if Trump did not target democrats or media on Wednesday, it would only be He said that this incident could replicate the response to the congressional baseball game last summer where a lone attacker directed Republican legislators. There were short talks for unity that drowned over time.
“This tour has been about rallying bass and the president know the subjects to be attacked, “said Shufeldt.” The cynic in me says yes, it may be a short push for civilization, but it will soon come back a to tribalism. “
Some of the president’s critics were able to quickly connect Wednesday’s planned attacks with the president’s rhetoric and demanded a change.
Arizona GOP Sen Jeff Flake said the president would stop marking the media as “the enemy” or verbally offensive political opponents.
