Jill Biden, the wife of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, was greeted by Trump supporters during a campaign stop in Wisconsin after her husband called his twelfth early-morning lid of the month.
Mrs. Biden visited Madison and Waukesha County. As her motorcade drove through Waukesha, a group of Trump supporters lined the street to chant “Four more years!” and wave Trump flags at her car. Pro-Trump signs also lined the street.
A Trump supporter tweeted: “Dr. Biden tried to sneak into Waukesha County today. Not on our watch. Wisconsin is TRUMP COUNTRY!!!”

Mrs. Biden’s campaign stop in Waukesha was sparsely attended, according to a Twitter video.
“Another underwhelming number of Biden supporters in attendance for Jill Biden’s talk in Waukesha County, Wisconsin today,” a Twitter user remarked. “Compare this to the thousands of people that show up to Trump’s campaign events in WI. The Democrats have to be worried about losing WI again.”

President Trump won Wisconsin in 2016 by a slim margin. Some Wisconsin voters said the recent Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots in Kenosha have alienated them.
One voter said: “As far as I’m concerned, [Biden] can just stay away because he did nothing beforehand. And what is he doing now? [Nothing!]”
Another voter said he believes the left-wing riots will ensure that blue state Wisconsin will swing for Trump in November.
“I think Kenosha’s gonna vote for President Trump in the upcoming election. We need him here,” the man said. “We need strong leadership. People that are born and raised here are disgusted and angry with what’s happened.”

Three weeks ago, Joe Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris, had an equally muted campaign event in Wisconsin.
Harris was mocked on Twitter for abruptly ending a PBS roundtable discussion with black business owners in Milwaukee without taking any questions even though the audience was friendly and the PBS hosts—who were both black—overtly supported her.
One of them gushed that Senator Harris would be the “next vice president of the United States!”
When the PBS host tried to pass her the mic to take audience questions, Harris simply packed up her papers and walked away. “I think we’re all done here,” she quipped.
One of Kamala’s staffers said: “Thank you. We’re all set.”
