Nah, Trump's not fanning the flames of violence. His rhetoric isn't encouraging these Second Amendment Gun Rights Militia nut jobs to commit violence. Not at all:

Feds Charge ‘Second Amendment Militia’ Members Who Allegedly Wanted to ‘Pick People Off’ During Kenosha Protests

Federal prosecutors have charged two Missouri men with a slew of gun-related charges after a recent trip to Kenosha, Wisconsin.

According to the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of WisconsinMatthew D. Krueger, 40-year-old Michael M. Karmo and 33-year-old Cody E. Smith were arrested and charged with multiple felonies after the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) received a tip.
“Karmo told CW he was going to go to Kenosha with the intention of possibly using the firearms on people,” the complaint goes on. “CW feared that with KARMO’s increase in conspiracy theory talks and other ‘crazy’ political talk he was not in the right mind set to have a firearm.”

Both Karmo and Smith admitted to traveling across state lines with several guns in their possession because they wanted to participate in a rally held by President Donald Trump and to verify his claims about the civil unrest that has occurred in Wisconsin since the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

“Smith stated they attended the rally for President Trump outside of the high school in Kenosha,” the complaint alleges. “Smith stated they wanted to see proof of the rioting.”
