Before that news broke, former Trump supporter-turned-basher Joe Walsh said Biden would win the election by going to Kenosha, and claimed Trump is “incapable” of doing so:
If @JoeBiden goes to Kenosha right now, he will win Wisconsin and he will win the Presidency.
It’s also the RIGHT thing to do. It’s also something Donald Trump is INCAPABLE of doing.
— Joe Walsh (@WalshFreedom) August 28, 2020
And after the latest reports about Trump’s plan to visit Wisconsin this coming Tuesday, Walsh is less optimistic:

Time will tell about the Biden campaign’s response.
Joe Biden was too scared to show up for his own convention, and is too scared to debate. But Walsh thinks he will go to Kenosha.
I wonder what the deep state has on Joe Walsh to make him so irrational? https://t.co/ImBAcFQvrf

On Saturday, the New York Times reported that Biden was “expected to travel on Monday to condemn violence,” though the Times didn’t specify where exactly Biden would travel to do so:
Mr. Biden, who has been a firm supporter of peaceful protests, is expected to travel on Monday to condemn violence, and to note that chaos has unfolded on Mr. Trump’s watch, according to someone familiar with his plans. He is also expected to charge more broadly that the president is seeking to change the subject from the coronavirus and economic challenges the country faces. Details of his Monday plans weren’t immediately clear.
