Oregon State Police called to Portland after deadly weekend

Oregon State Police called to Portland after deadly weekend

Portland police declared a riot Monday night after left-wing protesters marched on the apartment building where they believe Mayor Ted Wheeler lives, launching fireworks at the building and starting a fire.

For more than three months now, anti-racism protests have rocked Portland in the northwestern United States.

President Trump has attacked the efforts of local Democratic officials. Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence spoke harshly of the unrest in their acceptance speeches at the Republican National Convention last week, pointing fingers at the Democratic leadership in those cities.

Portland police earlier said in a tweet that a "political rally is caravanning throughout downtown Portland" and that there had been "some instances of violence between demonstrators and counter-demonstrators".

Law enforcement sources have actually informed The Oregonian that Reinoehl is being investigated for the killing, and his estranged sibling also confirmed that she got in touch with police to say he was the man seen in now-viral videos.

It was unveiled after a man was fatally shot amid clashes between supporters of President Trump and Black Lives Matter protesters.

The man who died was a member of Patriot Prayer, a right-wing group.

The victim of the Portland shooting on Saturday has been identified as a supporter of the right-wing group Patriot Prayer, and the founder of the group has identified the victim.

In one of his sharpest attacks on the president yet, Mr Biden went on to call Mr Trump a "toxic presence in this nation for four years" and accuse him of "poisoning the values this nation has always held dear, poisoning our very democracy".

"Had Governor Brown discussed her plan with my office, I would have told her it's about changing policy, not adding resources", he said, according to a statement released by Kellee Azar, a reporter with Portland's KATU.

Kenosha Mayor John Antaramian had urged Trump on Monday to pick another time to allow the city to heal. Some of the Trump supporters, in exchange, maced and shot the protestors with paintballs. The mega event showcased footage from the protests as "the possible future of the country" should the Democrats come to power.

There have been protests in Portland every night since late May, when they broke out following the death of George Floyd in the custody of Minneapolis police.

Ahead of his Wisconsin trip, the president has stoked controversy by refusing to condemn the actions of a 17-year-old accused in the fatal shootings of two Kenosha protesters in the days after Blake was wounded.

To the national media, Wheeler's back-and-forth with Trump, arguably more real-time and robust than any exchanges Trump has had with his opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, is the story, as opposed to the nightly protests and the response from local and state law enforcement.

The Indian Express is now on Telegram.

Trump was harsh on his remarks regarding the incident and said that Portland was in a great mess due to the Democrat Mayor.

This Facebook photo shows Aaron Danielson, who was shot and killed in downtown Portland Saturday night.

Wheeler had shared an open letter to Trump on Friday in which he said "we know you've reached the conclusion that images of violence or vandalism are your only ticket to re-election". "And those who do it should be prosecuted", he said. Wheeler responded during the news conference.

But sheriffs in Clackamas and Washington counties said they would not send deputies to Portland.
