The problem, Katie, is that you are making a distinction.
It's almost as though people blame Democrats for encouraging criminal behaviour.
Watching Trump differentiate between Democrat vs Republican states with his Covid chart was deeply disturbing. More so was his clumsily worded statement that if the death toll would be "very low ... if you take the blue states out,"
There is little relation in the spread of the virus and the political parties of state leaders.Read more from Axios
This idea essentially holds states hostage by insinuating that they only have themselves to blame for their troubles and if they want things to get better, then they had better vote Republican.
It doesn't matter who the candidate is - could be another Roy Moore - whether they have a better plan, or even any plan. Trump is essentially saying that if your state is blue, you're on your own.
And yes - he HAS threatened to cut funding to states with Democrat governors.

Just out of curiosity, have there been any Black Lives Matter events recently in your city?
It might be interesting to compare notes.
As for Black Lives Matter, there was a Black Lives Matter event here in Ames just couple of days ago. Here's a story about it from the Des Moines Register, along with some pictures.
Participants painted on pieces of wood cut from Iowa derecho debris as part of a community art project at Lockwood Cafe in Ames.Read more from www.desmoinesregister.com
This is as bad as it got in Las Vegas. There have been several instances of violence on the Strip, but entirely unrelated to protests. We live in a very diverse neighborhood, several miles from the Strip, and truth be told, our neighbors are just our neighbors. I think it's pretty much that way city-wide because our "industry" attracts people from all over the world, many of whom decide to live here. Like we did, they come to party, they explore and find a welcoming, family-friendly place to live. So no, we have not had any riots, or beatings, etc.
This week, the US President downplayed coronavirus, cast doubt on a judge's dying wish and refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power. To understand why his supporters buy the pantomime, look no further than the world of sports entertainment, writes David Lipson.Read more from www.abc.net.au

I would guess that the local police have some diversity training, then, so that people from all cultures feel welcome. So why do you object to the same sensitivity from law enforcement in cities in which you do not live? Is gambling such an important source of inverse revenue, that Vegas is exceptional?
Well, the casinos don't care about the color of your skin, as long as they can skin it.
OMG ! Hope Hicks tested positive with symptoms, got on the heli and plane with the almighty.
so Trump wont get any nookie tonight.
Not to worry!
The US president and Melania Trump were tested after his close aide was confirmed to have Covid-19.Read more from BBC News
Now he might actually take it seriously.
I do NOT want to wish harm on anyone, but Pence is probably fine, as his wife has a tight rein on him. Remember though, that after Pence, Nancy Pelosi is the next one in charge. Yeah!
