Trump Blasts Antifa After Portland Rioters Topple Lincoln, Roosevelt Statues

By New York Post. President Trump called on federal law enforcement to target the “Radical Left” and Antifa after rioters in Portland on Sunday evening toppled statues of Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt during “day of rage” protests over the Christopher Columbus holiday.

“The FBI and Law Enforcement must focus their energy on ANTIFA and the Radical Left, those who have spent the summer trying to burn down poorly run Democrat Cities throughout the USA!,” the president wrote in a string of tweets Monday after the “indigenous peoples day of rage,” organized by a faction of Antifa.

“Taking advantage of fools. Law & Order! Portland, call in the Feds!,” Trump said in another posting.

The president, who has made law and order and criticism of the national riots following the killing of George Floyd a major part of his re-election campaign, also linked former Vice President Joe Biden to Antifa.
