Donald Trump's Portland Rhetoric Doesn't Match Reality
During a Fox News interview on Sunday, President Donald Trump painted an alarming picture of anti–police brutality protests in Portland.
“You know, if you look at what’s gone on in Portland, those are anarchists, and we’ve taken a very tough stand,” he told Chris Wallace. “If we didn’t take a stand in Portland — you know we’ve arrested many of these leaders. If we didn’t take that stand, right now you would have a problem like you, you— they were going to lose Portland.”
