Portland Mayor Wheeler Says Federal Agents are ‘leading to more violence’

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Portland Democrat Mayor Ted Wheeler wants federal agents out of Portland as violent protests rage on.

Wheeler is blaming the deployed federal agents for the violence.

Violent protestors have taken over the streets of Portland for nearly 50 days, resulting in looting, vandalism, arson, and attacks on police officers.

Federal agents were deployed to restore law and order, however, Wheeler is complaining about their presence, saying, there’s “more violence” in Portland because of them.

Fox News reports:

“What’s happening here is we have dozens, if not hundreds of federal troops descending upon our city and what they’re doing is they are sharply escalating the situation. Their presence here is actually leading to more violence and more vandalism.”

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) was outraged over the tactics of arrests in Portland, Oregon, and called federal agents from the Department of Homeland Security “stormtroopers” in response to their effort to bring order and protect federal buildings including a courthouse in Oregon.

Despite the outrageous criticism from Wheeler, Pelosi, and other Democrats over the presence of federal agents, Portland Chief of Police Chuck Lovell called “for an end to nightly violence.”

Acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan called out Wheeler in an interview and commented about the violence on social media.

President Trump defended his actions in Portland on social media.

Wheeler’s lack of leadership exacerbated the ongoing violence on the streets of Portland.

Clearly, Wheeler’s words and lack of action to deter the violence while blaming federal agents is reckless, irresponsible, and outright dangerous.
