MOSINEE, Wisconsin – President Trump stood in the White House on Wednesday afternoon to denounce the bombing of several prominent Democrats and to make a somber appeal: "We have to agree." It is a directive that he has given the country before, after mass shootings and other politically poisonous tragedies that have interrupted his term of office
He does not seem to follow his own advice long.
That's what happened on Wednesday evening, when Mr. Trump seemed to withdraw, as always in partisanship, but in a softer tone. Here in Wisconsin, he launched his 38th election campaign since taking over the presidency with a little rhetorical jiu-jitsu and managed to make the news media and Democrats a first call to the Americans to "gather in peace and harmony."

The President flicked a suggestion that was popularized by liberals and some members of the news media, suggesting that his nationalist views were similar to Adolf Hitler's: "Nobody I should carelessly compare political opponents with historical villains."
And somehow Mr. Trump made the daily news about his own problems with the news media. He urged journalists to "set a civil tone" and "stop the endless hostility and the constant negative and often false attacks and stories".
Then Mr. Trump again drew the crowd's attention to his bipartisan efforts: "By the way, do you see how nice I am to behave this evening?" He asked. "Have you ever seen that? We're all doing very well!" (19659002) (Minutes later, the president reiterated the theme: "I think we'll have two parties over the infrastructure.")
Still The Idea of Mr. Trump and the Slate The Wisconsin Republicans who came here on stage served as further confirmation that in less than two weeks to a round of midterm elections where the house's leadership is at stake, even explosive device reports could do much to stop months of highly divisive messages in campaign rallies.
Mr. Trump has addressed the reports in his introductory remarks, calling the episodes "an attack on our democracy itself" and promising swift justice.
"Such behavior must be fiercely opposed and strictly prosecuted," said the president. "We want all sides to come together in peace and harmony, we can do it."
Two other Republicans, who took the stage here in an airport hangar in the 4,000-person city of Mosinee, began their speeches with a brief disclaimer – Basically, terrorism is bad – before they condemn the Democrats for their immigration policy and the cost of health care.
Speaker Paul D. Ryan had some difficulty getting through a "Build the Wall!" – break vocals.
"Let me say something that I have to say on a day like today, Mr. Ryan said.
" Build the wall! "Yelled a group in the crowd.
Mr Ryan replied that He would "come to that" and smiled.
"Build the Wall!" called the group louder.
"Did you see the news about these devices this morning?" Ryan finally asked, "This is terrorism. There is no place for this in our democracy. We reject that and I just want to say thank God for our prosecution.
Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican campaigning for a third term, has also briefly commented on these reports.
"An attempt to launch an act of terrorism against an American is an attack on any American," he said he
His comments in the White House, Mr. Trump, said that the explosive packages were sent to "current and former high-ranking government officials" without naming the intended recipients: former President Barack Obama, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton; John O. Brennan, the former CIA director, and Representative Maxine Waters, Democrat of California – four of the president's preferred political goals Another device apparently designed for the man who served as Mr. Obama's Attorney General, Eric H. Holder Jr., has been abused.
The package for Mr. Brennan containing an unidentified white powder was sent to the New Yorkers Offices sent by CNN, the cable news network that Mr. Trump routinely denigrates. The mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, called the suspicious packages "an effort to terrorize."
Mr. Brennan was an outspoken critic of Mr. Trump and eventually led the President to deprive him of his security clearance. Mr. Brennan works as a paid consultant for MSNBC, not for CNN. The sender address of the package sent to CNN was that of Deputy Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democrat of Florida and former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.
"We will not be intimidated by this attempted act of violence", Ms. Wasserman Schultz said in a statement on Wednesday evening
Several presidential rally goals so far seemed skeptical that he would soften his language, and others suggested that Trump's words threatened his political opponents. California Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic group leader, and Chuck Schumer from New York, the Senate Democrat chairman, called on the president to lift back statements that endorsed violence – last week Trump praised a Republican (19659006) in a joint Explanation they said: "President Trump's words sound empty until he reverses his statements that tolerate violence."
At a conference in Texas on Wednesday, Mr. Brennan
"What he said today is what a president should do," Brennan said. "But follow these words with deeds and with his future comments, and I hope that may be a turning point."
The President has paid little heed to delivering fissures after the sober messages in Washington, but he has not mentioned his frequent goals, of which several received packages on Wednesday, by name. And although "lock-up-up" songs were heard, Mr. Trump did not bring up Mrs. Clinton.
The President, instead, drew the crowd back to his usual potpourri of factually dubious claims about the Democratic Policies, lingering fear "The Democrats are against any effort to secure our border," Trump said, pointing out once again that The Democrats are in favor of border security – but not the construction of the president's long-promised wall on the southwestern border. Mr. Trump then hinted that he would follow repeated suggestions that he would send the military to the border, even though the military is forbidden to engage in police activities.
"Wait until you see what happens in the next few weeks, you'll see a very safe border, just watch," he said. "And the military is ready, they're all hired, they're all hired, they're all ready and there's no one like them."
Meanwhile, Mr. Trump urged his supporters to pay attention to how softly he spoke. He tried in different places to highlight the positive.
"Kanye West likes me," said the president. "Interesting guy."
"Kayne is an idiot!" Shrieked a single rally enthusiast.
In fact, it was sometimes clear that some participants did not want to participate in a lower decibel rally.
I try to be nice, "the President said in a memory that seemed as important to him as it was to the crowd.
