Trump Presses Law and Order Message As Protest Turns Deadly

WASHINGTON – A man was shot dead in the U.S. city of Portland, police said on Sunday, the latest violence to upend anti-racism protests as President Donald Trump pressed a campaign message characterizing his Democratic opponent Joe Biden as weak on violent crime.
But hours after gunfire on Saturday at a pro-Trump rally in Oregon city, Biden accused the president of fueling the flames of violence in a polarized and tense country.
The shooting followed a week of nationwide protests – including the cancellation of numerous sporting events – over the Kenosha, Wis., Police shootout on African American Jacob Blake.
Violence in Portland erupted during a rally involving hundreds of vehicles “in trailers throughout downtown Portland,” police said. OregonLive reported “clashes” and “moments of tension” between protesters and counter-protesters.
Photographs of the scene showed the victim wearing a hat with a logo for “Patriot Prayer,” described by local media as a far-right group at the center of several Portland protests that resulted in violence.
The Portland clashes followed the unrest in Kenosha, where prosecutors accused 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse of shooting two men and injuring another protesting the Blake shooting.
Trump is due to travel to the Midwestern city on Tuesday to meet with law enforcement officials and see the damage caused by the unrest sparked by Blake’s shooting last weekend.
Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers sent a letter to the president asking him to reconsider the visit because it “will only hinder our healing,” according to U.S. media.
Violence linked to anti-racism protests has become a significant problem in the November presidential campaign, with Trump posing as the choice of “law and order” and claiming that a Biden presidency would allow the reign of the left mob.
Biden condemned the violence and argued that Trump had played a role in spurring the clashes.
“He recklessly encourages violence,” the Democratic candidate said in a statement.
“He may believe that tweeting about law and order makes him strong – but his inability to call on his supporters to stop seeking conflict shows how weak he is.”
Biden’s campaign announced he would deliver a speech Monday to answer what it called a key question voters to face in November “Are you safe in Donald Trump’s America?”
Trump spent Sunday morning tweeting and retweeting dozens of messages purporting to show violence in Democratic-ruled cities, and in particular Portland.
The president has repeatedly threatened to send federal government forces to the west coast city if Mayor Ted Wheeler does not crackdown.
Trump attacked Wheeler, a Democrat, for refusing help from the National Guard who he said: “could solve these problems in less than an hour.”
“Wheeler is incompetent, just like Sleepy Joe Biden,” Trump tweeted.
“This is not what our great country wants. They want safety and security and do NOT want to dismantle our police!”
Wheeler criticized Trump at a press conference on Sunday, saying that for nearly four years Americans had to put up with what the mayor called Trump’s racist attacks on black people, the sexist remarks about women, insults against immigrants and journalists, and now, the mayors of major American cities.
“Do you seriously ask yourself, Mr President, why is this the first time in decades that America has experienced this level of violence?” Mr Wheeler said.
“It was you who created the hatred and the division.”
Wheeler said Trump inspired the trailer passing through Portland on Saturday night.
“They were supported and stimulated by the president himself,” said Wheeler.
Wheeler had shared an open letter to Trump on Friday in which he said: “We know you have concluded that images of violence or vandalism are your only ticket to re-election.”
