(AbsoluteNews.com) – Violent protests have been taking place in Portland, OR, for more than three months. On Saturday, August 29, a clash between Trump supporters and Black Lives Matter protesters led to the death of one man. Acting Department of Homeland Security Chief Chad Wolf is now saying federal authorities are considering “all options” to end the violence.
During an interview with ABC’s “This Week,” Wolf was asked about the violent riots in the city. The acting chief explained, “all options continue to be on the table” to stop the riots.
President Donald Trump echoed similar sentiments on Sunday when he lashed out at Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) for rejecting federal assistance and allowing the violence to continue.
Ted Wheeler, the wacky Radical Left Do Nothing Democrat Mayor of Portland, who has watched great death and destruction of his City during his tenure, thinks this lawless situation should go on forever. Wrong! Portland will never recover with a fool for a Mayor….

How much more violence can one city take before leadership agrees that people shouldn’t be gunned down in the street? Is Wheeler waiting for a couple more bodies before he does his job? President Trump is being very patient, but it’s starting to look like he’s going to have to step in without the support of the do-nothing mayor.
You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
