Multnomah County Sheriff Mike Reese of Portland, Oregon, quickly shut down President Donald Trump’s claim that he endorsed him for the upcoming presidential election.

During the first presidential debate on Tuesday night, Reese took to Twitter with his reaction to Trump’s remarks as he confirmed he has never supported Trump. In addition, he also made it clear he has no intent on supporting the president going forward.

“In tonight’s presidential debate the President said the ‘Portland Sheriff’ supports him,” Reese tweeted on Tuesday night, adding, “As the Multnomah County Sheriff I have never supported Donald Trump and will never support him.”

As he offered a more candid look at all that has transpired up to last night, Reese also revealed how Trump has impacted his personal and professional life as he tweeted, “Donald Trump has made my job a hell of a lot harder since he started talking about Portland, but I never thought he’d try to turn my wife against me!”

Reese’s remarks came shortly after Trump’s claim during the presidential debate. During debate, the president and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s argued about law and order. Trump falsely claimed to have overwhelming support among “military leaders and generals” and law enforcement groups.

Trump also claimed Biden could not utter the words law enforcement out of fear of losing his “radical left supporters” as he, himself, failed to denounce white supremacy.

“Almost every law enforcement group in the United States — I have Florida, I have Texas, I have Ohio, I have everyone — excuse me, Portland sheriff just came out today and said I support President Trump. I don’t think you have any law enforcement,” Mr. Trump said to Biden. “You can’t even say the word law enforcement because if you say those words, you’re going to lose all of your radical left supporters.”

Published

President Donald Trump's campaign decisions were ridiculed by a conservative campaign strategist on MSNBC.

"The Week" anchor Joshua Johnson interviewed Susan Del Percio, a longtime GOP strategist and senior advisor to the Lincoln Project.

"Susan, what about the differences in strategy between the Biden campaign and the Trump campaign in terms of how they spend their dollars? We know that Trump campaign has often favored online advertising vs. on air advertising. They have some pretty creative stuff coming out in the last few days, one of the latest pieces they put out is called 'How to Catch a Zombie, Doe Biden edition' -- with a picture of Joe Biden, I think, between words so he looks a little zonked out."

Trump’s attacks on voting ‘backfired and only inspired people to march early to the polls’: report

Published

on

Clark County Registrar of Voters Joseph Gloria has had three decades of election experience in Nevada, but had never seen a "perfect storm," as he called it, like this before. With all hands on deck for this election cycle, Gloria helped put together an entire mail-in voting system in less than 90 days to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’m as comfortable as I can be because I have an excellent staff,” Gloria said. “We learned some things in the primary and are feeling good about this cycle, but unfortunately we have people at the national level who are encouraging people to do things that disrupt the polling place and make it a challenge for us to process votes.”

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) laughed when asked if President Donald Trump was racist during a 60 Minutes interview that aired Sunday evening on CBS.

"Do you think the president is racist?" Nora O'Donnell asked.

"Yes, I do," Harris replied, with a laugh. "Yeah, I do."

"You can look at a pattern that goes back to him questioning the identity of the first Black president of the United States," she said, referring to the racist "birther" conspiracy theory he pushed against Barack Obama.

"You can look at Charlottesville, when there were peaceful protesters and on the other side neo-Nazis and he talks about fine people on either side," she continued. "Calling Mexicans rapists and criminals? His first order of business was to institute a Muslim ban?"
