Trump suggests he'll send federal agents to other major US cities
Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio thanks the President for defending federa buildings in Portland, Oregon. Delgaudio said: "Portland has federal court, postal and agency offices like most major American cities and they were paid for by American taxpayers and serve the public. The President has a duty to prevent domestic terrorists from destroying these structures and threatening employees and the public they are serving."
President Donald Trump on Monday said he's considering sending federal law enforcement to other major cities to counter unrest after controversially deploying federal agents to respond to demonstrations against racism and police brutality in Portland, Oregon.
"In Portland they've done a fantastic job," Trump said of the federal agents sent to the Oregon city.
Trump described the protesters as anarchists who "hate" the U.S. and signaling he might send federal troops to cities like Chicago, New York, Detroit, Baltimore, and Oakland...
The federal officers sent to Portland are with the U.S. Marshals Service and an elite U.S. Customs and Border Protection unit, and they've been deployed as part of Trump's defense of monuments and broader pushback on protesters.
