Americans of all stripes are watching in shock at what’s unfolding in blue cities across the country.
It appears Democratic governors and mayors refuse to restore law and order.
Whenever Trump has offered federal assistance, these Democrats often rejected it. They’ve even attacked him, blaming him for the problems.
The mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, even issued a public letter accusing Trump of spreading “politics of division.” Even as Portland’s suffered three months of unrest.
Now, the DHS chief is firing back, demanding Portland to take action:
Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf is pressing the mayor of Portland, Ore., to accept federal help for continuing protests as police declared another riot in the city Monday night…
“Due to a lack of action throughout the summer, Portland and its law-abiding residents continue to suffer from large-scale looting, arson, and vandalism—even killing,” Wolf wrote.
Chad Wolf of the Department of Homeland Security is calling on the mayor of Portland to accept federal assistance.
He criticized the mayor for rejecting Trump’s offer, suggesting it is Wheeler who is putting politics ahead of American citizens.
Since the beginning of the Summer, Democrat-run cities have suffered at the hands of radical activists.
Democrats are mostly just turning a blind eye, even calling it all “peaceful protests.”
In my opinion, President Trump, doesn’t seem to be “politicizing” the crisis, only offering federal aid. Though he doesn’t miss an opportunity to show the American people who’s to blame when federal support is rejected.
In regions where Donald sent National Guard or federal law enforcement, peace dramatically improved.
But cities and states run by far-left leaders, like in Seattle and Portland, problems only get worse as they reject federal assistance.
Joe Biden has largely ignored the problem, until only recently. It seems dipping poll numbers have forced Biden out his basement to condemn violence… by blaming it on Trump.
While Biden claims to be against the crisis, he has appeared to offer no solution to end it. Trump has accused him of being too afraid to confront Antifa and BLM, which are run by leftists.
So, once again, it appears a Democrat is putting politics ahead of the real problem.
President Trump has made it clear to every Democrat mayor and governor that the federal government is ready to end the riots.
The DHS, National Guard, and other law enforcement agencies can easily bring all this to an end.
The only thing standing in the way? Democrats.
- The mayor of Portland refused Trump’s help to end riots, accusing the President of “politics of division.”
- DHS chief Chad Wolf has urged Portland to accept the federal government’s help to restore law and order.
- DHS chief Chad Wolf sharply criticized Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler for letting his city fall into chaos.
