Collin Rugg – According to a new report, President Donald Trump is ordering the federal government to begin a process that may defund four Democratic cities for their “lawless” behavior in recent months that resulted from the massive left-wing protests and riots.
“My Administration will not allow Federal tax dollars to fund cities that allow themselves to deteriorate into lawless zones,” President Trump said according to the New York Post. “To ensure that Federal funds are neither unduly wasted nor spent in a manner that directly violates our Government’s promise to protect life, liberty, and property, it is imperative that the Federal Government review the use of Federal funds by jurisdictions that permit anarchy, violence, and destruction in America’s cities.”
The order from the President takes aim at the left-wing cities of New York City, Seattle, Portland and Washington D.C.
Democratic leadership has completely failed to maintain peace in their cities as left-wing extremists have taken over.
President Trump has specifically taken aim at liberal Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler who recently had to move out of his condo because left-wing extremists ransacked the building.
On Sunday morning, President Trump unleashed on Wheeler for rejecting his federal help to quell the ongoing riots. The comments from the president came after one of his supporters was shot and killed in Portland on Saturday evening.
“The shooting happened after right-wing protesters drove trucks around the city with American flags and Trump flags and were met by far-left antifa activists who blocked traffic and threw things at the vehicles, which often elicited a response from the vehicles,” The Daily Wire reported. “Video of the attack that was posted online showed the shooting and, according to two journalists, appeared to show someone saying, ‘we got a Trumper right here,’ before two fatal shots were fired at the victim.”
President Trump unleashed a tweet storm on Sunday morning, unloading on the liberal Portland mayor.
“The big backlash going on in Portland cannot be unexpected after 95 days of watching an incompetent Mayor admit that he has no idea what he is doing,” President Trump tweeted. “The people of Portland won’t put up with no safety any longer.The Mayor is a FOOL. Bring in the National Guard!”
“Our great National Guard could solve these problems in less than 1 hour. Local authorities must ask before it is too late. People of Portland, and other Democrat run cities, are disgusted with Schumer, Pelosi, and their local ‘leaders’. They want Law & Order!,” he added, later noting: “Wheeler is incompetent, much like Sleepy Joe Biden. This is not what our great Country wants. They want Safety & Security, and do NOT want to Defund our Police!”
He also quote tweeted a video of Antifa radicals mobbing and beating a Trump supporter: “ANTIFA is a Radical Left group that only wants bad things for our Country. They are supported by $FOOLS!”
Over the weekend, Wheeler sent a nasty letter to President Trump, rejecting his offer to help quell the ongoing riots in Portland.
Wheeler unloaded on the President for his “politics of division and demagoguery,” “reckless disregard for human life,” “bumbling response to the COVID pandemic,” and finished by claiming that President Trump’s offer was “a cynical attempt to stoke fear and distract us from the real work of our city.”
Read the disgusting letter below:
Dear President Trump:
Yet again, you offered to aid Portland by sending in federal law enforcement to our city.
On behalf of the City of Portland: No thanks.
We don’t need your politics of division and demagoguery. Portlanders are on to you. We have already seen your reckless disregard for human life in your bumbling response to the COVID pandemic. And we know you’ve reached the conclusion that images of violence and vandalism are your only ticket to reelection.
There is no place for looting, arson, or vandalism in our city. There is no room here for racist violence or those who wish to bring their ideology of hate into our community. Those who commit criminal acts will be apprehended and prosecuted under the law.
Tens of thousands of Portlanders have peacefully protested and marched for the noble cause of fixing our broken criminal justice system. They are part of the proud progressive tradition of Portlanders fighting for justice — from racial justice to economic justice to environmental justice.
When you sent the feds to Portland last month, you made the situation far worse. Your offer to repeat that disaster is a cynical attempt to stoke fear and distract us from the real work of our city.
In Portland, we are focused on coming together as a community to solve the serious challenges we face due to systemic racism, a global pandemic and an economic recession.
Stay away, please.
