In the city of Portland, riotings have been going on for two months straight.
Because the governor has refused to enforce the law, Trump sent in federal agents.
Local democrats and the federal government appeared to come to an agreement.
But Trump warned the governor that she had better get the work done:
President Donald Trump criticized Democratic Oregon Gov. Kate Brown on Thursday, telling her to clear protesters out of Portland or the federal government would “do it for her.”
Trump’s tweet came one day after the Trump administration reached an agreement with Brown to proceed with a phased withdrawal of federal agents from downtown Portland.
Critics have noted how Democrats sat back as rioters attacked their cities, but were upset when Trump sent in federal law enforcement.
Democrats in Oregon (and elsewhere) were more upset that federal agents were working to protect their people, than criminals who are destroying property.
The governor negotiated with the DHS to strike a deal that would remove federal agents from Portland. The agreement requires that state and local police protect the city and quell any more rioting.
Governor Brown was quick to brag about her “achievement,” although she has yet to make good on her end.
President Trump is warning her—and the rest of the left-wing government of Oregon—that he is not about to let rioters overrun our country.
He is promising that DHS and other federal agents will not be leaving the city until there is law and order.
The reason we are seeing so much unrest and destruction across various cities? Because Democratic leaders refused to act.
They called riots “peaceful” protests and then promised to punish the police, not criminals.
Donald Trump called on local leaders like the mayor of Portland and governor, to defend the law. But the routinely refused. He only sent in federal law enforcement to do what the local government refused.
It appears he is not about to abandon the law-abiding citizens of Portland if the governor refuses to let the police do their job.
- Oregon’s governor and the federal government agreed to a deal to withdraw federal agents.
- President Trump warned that he would not withdraw agents until Portland was under control.
- Democrats across the nation appear to do nothing as rioters run loose through their cities.
