Democrat Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers refused help from the Trump administration to deploy hundreds of National Guard troops to quell the riots and maintain law and order.

Evers rejected President Donald Trump's offer to help just hours before two people were shot and killed amid another night of violence following the Jacob Blake shooting.

“Governor should call in the National Guard in Wisconsin,” Trump tweeted.

“It is ready, willing, and more than able. End problem FAST!”

More details were revealed by White House Senior Communications Advisor Ben Williamson:

“Local law enforcement in Wisconsin have told the White House they need at least 750 National Guard tonight.

"Governor Evers is only sending 250. Today, Mark Meadows called the Governor and offered 500 additional guard to meet the police needs.

"Governor Evers declined.”

Evers' decision to refuse help proved to be dealy after at least two people were killed during a shooting.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported:

A widely shared video shows a man sprinting into a car lot at 63th Street and Sheridan Road, carrying a long gun. Someone pursuing him appears to throw something toward him. Multiple gunshots are heard.

Another video, posted to Twitter by Shelby Talcott of the Daily Caller, shows a gunshot victim lying in the parking lot. The victim, who appears to be the man who had been pursuing the gunman, has been shot in the head. Bystanders were applying pressure to the wound.

In a later video posted by Talcott, bystanders were carrying the victim across Sheridan Road toward the hospital.

WATCH

On Tuesday, Neon Nettle reported a church in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was also burned down by Black Lives Matter rioters.

The riots extended into the early morning hours on Monday and then picked up again on Tuesday night and extended into the early morning hours on Tuesday.

Rep. Bryan Steil (R-WI) confirms Evers rejected help from the Trump administration.

“Yesterday, Governor Evers sent 250 National Guard to Kenosha,” Steil said in a statement:

“This was woefully insufficient. Yesterday, I asked the President for additional assistance. He agreed.

"The offer was rejected by Governor Evers. Again, I call on the Governor to accept the President’s offer of assistance, supported by Kenosha officials, which includes National Guard from other states and federal law enforcement officers.

"The violence needs to stop now.”

The violence in Kenosha, yet another Democrat-run city, continued into its third night as looting took place across the area.

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said:

“I got a call today from congressman who represents that district, and from Senator Johnson as well, really just pleading for help, saying that the local sheriff and the mayor and police chief need some additional assistance,” he said.

“I got on the phone right away and offered assistance in the form of additional National Guard help.”

Meadows added:

“The president was on the phone with the governor today […] we have National Guard standing by, and if the general for the National Guard [in Kenosha] needs additional help, we’re there to do it, but today, that request was denied by the governor.”
