Mayor Ted Wheeler wants a ceasefire. The man is insane. There are violent rioters destroying Portland, trying to burn up a courthouse, and this mayor thinks the DHS is the problem. They call federal law enforcement, ‘forces,’ to make them seem like the military.
If he wants them out, all he has to do is let his police department do their job. Remove the rioters and protect the courthouse first, you lunatic.
Since when does the DHS have to negotiate with insane rioters?
Commissioner @JoAnnPDX and I are calling for an immediate meeting with Department of Homeland Security leadership on the ground in Portland and with Acting Secretary @DHS_Wolf to discuss a cease-fire and the removal of heightened federal forces from Portland.
