The leader of the free world lashed out at those criticizing his Department of Homeland Security in a series of tweets sent just before 11 p.m. on Monday.
“The Fake News Media is trying to portray the Portland and Seattle “protesters” as wonderful, sweet and innocent people just out for a little stroll,” Trump claimed, despite the fact most media coverage has focused on the fact the protesters are outraged about Trump’s DHS agents in Portland.
Trump then tied the issue to the 2020 campaign, seemingly agreeing with Oregon elected officials that he sent the DHS agents to bolster has lagging re-election campaign.
“Actually, they are sick and deranged Anarchists & Agitators who our great men & women of Law Enforcement easily control, but who would destroy our American cities, and worse, if Sleepy Joe Biden, the puppet of the Left, ever won,” Trump argued.
“Markets would crash and cities would burn. Our Country would suffer like never before,” he claimed, as his COVID-19 death toll approaches 150,000.
“We will beat the Virus, soon, and go on to the Golden Age – better than ever before!” Trump promised.

Women are making Trump ‘melt down’ — or turn tail and run: columnist
President Donald Trump doesn’t like being challenged by any media figures, even if they are conservative white males like Fox News’ Chris Wallace or The Bulwark’s Bill Kristol. But female reporters, in particular, seem to rattle Trump, as journalist Jack Shafer argues in an op-ed published in Politico this week.
Shafer describes a pattern, explaining, “It starts with a reporter, usually a female reporter, asking President Donald Trump hard, tenacious questions at a news conference. Trump’s jaw seizes up, rattled and dumbfounded by the questions that he can’t or won’t answer. He abruptly ends the presser by saying, ‘Thank you very much’ and stalking out of the room.”
‘Silence is complicity’: GOP condemned for doing nothing as Trump openly touts sabotage of postal service
"Donald Trump knows that if the people are heard in November, he and Republicans up and down the ballot will lose," said Sen. Elizabeth Warren. "This is what we're up against—and this is why we have to fight back with all we've got."
Voting rights advocates on Thursday took aim at Republicans in Congress for remaining silent in the face of President Donald Trump's open admission that he is blocking funding for the U.S. Postal Service with the express purpose of stopping an expansion of mail-in ballot access ahead of the November elections.
Biden, Harris focus White House campaign on virus crisis
Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris will put the coronavirus pandemic front and center in their campaign Thursday, targeting Donald Trump's response to the health and economic crises ahead of November's election.
