( – President Biden recently took to the social media platform X to share his appreciation for Milwaukee. His post, which included a photo of the Milwaukee Bucks visiting the White House after their 2021 NBA championship, seemed to counter disparaging remarks reportedly made by President Trump. Reports had emerged that Trump criticized Milwaukee, calling it a “horrible city” during a private meeting.

The timing of Biden’s post is notable as it followed these reports and comes just as Trump is poised to be nominated as the Republican candidate for president at the upcoming National Convention in Milwaukee. Wisconsin Republican representatives quickly defended Trump. Rep. Derrick Van Orden suggested that Trump was actually critiquing the city’s crime rate, not the city itself. Rep. Bryan Steil also defended Trump, stating he was present at the meeting and did not hear such comments. He praised Wisconsin, remarking, “There is no better place than Wisconsin in July.”

The Trump campaign clarified that the remarks were intended to address crime in Milwaukee, not the city itself or its citizens. They accused critics of using the incident as ‘rage bait’ to gain social media traction and noted that no reporters were present during the discussion.

Democrats, however, seized on Trump’s alleged remarks. Garren Randolph, a Democratic campaign manager, argued that if Trump dislikes Milwaukee so much, he should not visit. He highlighted Milwaukee’s cultural and demographic importance to Wisconsin, its major sports teams, and its renowned brewing industry. Randolph’s critique painted a picture of Milwaukee that deserves respect and admiration, not disdain from figures like Trump.
