Portland among other cities in the US has become a hub for rallies against police violence and racism since the killing of African-American Goerge Floyd in Minneapolis on 25 May.

The mayor had issued a warning against people coming to the city to seek revenge after being inspired by being social media posts

“For those of you saying on Twitter this morning that you plan to come to Portland to seek retribution, I’m calling on you to stay away,” he warned

The Mayor also responded to Trumps criticism stating that he was the US president who had “created the hate and the division”.

“I’d appreciate it if the president would support us or stay the hell out of the way,” he said

In his series of Tweets, Mr. Trump said that Portland will never recover if the mayor is not discharging his duties accordingly. He thus suggested sending Federal forces to the city.

President Trump`s sentiment has also been anchored by a voice of activists who have called upon the Portland Mayor to resign

President Trump also accused Joe Bidden of not being ready to lead the US.
