Well, not San Jose’s Democrat mayor:

“At some point Donald Trump needs to take responsibility for the irresponsible behavior of his campaign,” Mayor Sam Liccardo told the Associated Press, praising the city’s  police while adding that “we’re all still holding our breath to see the outcome of this dangerous and explosive situation.”
