Riots in Democratic-controlled US cities can only be ended by force. This was stated by President Donald Trump.

The American leader, in particular, criticized the mayor of Portland (Oregon) Ted Wheeler, calling him “an insane, left-wing radical, doing nothing democrat who is watching the massive death and destruction of his city.”

“The only way to stop violence in high crime cities run by Democrats is by force!” – wrote Trump in Twitter

The US President also insists on the introduction of the National Guard into the city. Local authorities refuse this offer.

Previously acting The head of the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Chad Wolfe, said that “chaos and lawlessness” reign in Portland. He also stressed that the IMB is ready to use all resources to normalize the situation in the city, where the protests and riots have been going on for more than 90 days.

Mass protests and riots began in many US cities in late May after the death of African American George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, after being harshly detained by the police. To restore order, the US National Guard was connected to local law enforcement agencies. Around 40 cities, including Washington and New York, had curfews.

A new wave of unrest erupted after police in the city of Kenosha, Wisconsin, shot several times in the back of African-American Jacob Blake. The victim was hospitalized in serious condition.

The largest actions were observed in Portland. City police reported that one person died during the protests on 30 August. According to media reports, there were clashes in the city between Trump supporters and members of the Black Lives Matter movement.
