Why is neither side chastising Trump for not doing something about the riots
This includes the media. Was reported on FOX that the riots have cost insurance companies one billion dollars so far. There's definitely more damage than that. A 25,000 dollar cap on policies ain't doodly for a business that has been destroyed. Trump has caught hell for lack of leadership on the virus and the fires from the left and from the media but nothing about the riots. I hope he brings this up in the debate.

On the Republican side I'd thought at least a handful of them would have been urging Trump to do something based on constituents back home telling them to tell Trump enough is enough.

It's perplexing to say the least.

Can’t help cities and states who don’t want to be helped.

The left WANT him to “send in the troops” so they can use their already made comparisons to Hitler.

The states have to request assistance from the fed, they haven't, so his hands are tied, simple as that.

Because cities are responsible for their own policing. When he's offered help, they've turned him down.

It isn't Trump's responsibility. It's all on the democrat run states/cities

The local police forces have enough power to stop the riots, they are being told to stand down by leftist mayors.

Trump is playing this on a different level. He's letting the voting public get a good sampling of what they'll get if they elect Biden. Trump has clearly declared his distaste for the rioters. Biden and the DEMs - not so much.

Because Democrat and Republican politicians, other than maybe a few, are our enemies like the media is.

Election run restraint + Dem state/city leaderships = gotta wait until given the victory mandate?

Because the Mayors and Governors do not want help and actively demand none be given.

Media can’t demand Trump send in the feds and make the dem mayors and governors look stupid.

Everyone who has asked for help putting down the riots got it.

The places that are burning do not have Republican constituents. They are all, literally, Democrat bastions.

And like he said last night, "I can only do so much, you know that George."

The riots are a political nightmare for the Dems. They can't condemn them, but they know that every day they go on, more and more people are going to vote for Trump.

re: Why is neither side chastising Trump for not doing something about the riots
There have been several that have called for the Insurrection Act. But that is what the leftists want. They want to bait Trump into their narrative. That’s the sheeple approach.

One of the globalists’ true motives is to get Trump to set the precedent, so that they can do it to the conservatives when they get power.

re: Why is neither side chastising Trump for not doing something about the riots
Trump should not send Federal forces unless requested to do so from the state government.

And when he IS asked to dispatch federal forces, he should do so in a swift but reasonable manner, involving local LEO's when those organizations are also committed to clean up the problem.

Trump should wait until following the election, then declare Antifa and BLM the civil terrorist organizations that they are ... and see that they are rounded up and either deported or imprisoned for their terrorism against the taxpaying citizenry.

Then why are they blaming him for not doing enough about the virus and the fires? I think you guys have misinterpreted my post. I was trying to say with the virus and the fires they seem to say - come save us but when it comes to the rioting they say leave us alone, we'll handle it.

Why are they not holding local officials accountable?
