President Trump ripped Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler in a string of tweets early Sunday as “incompetent” and called on local officials to ask him for help to quell the violence that has been rocking the Oregon city for months.
“Wheeler is incompetent, much like Sleepy Joe Biden,” Trump posted about the Democratic mayor. “This is not what our great Country wants. They want Safety & Security, and do NOT want to Defund our Police!”
Trump began tweeting and retweeting about Portland shortly before 5 a.m.
They come after as a man wearing a far-right group Patriot Prayer hat was killed Saturday evening during clashes between Black Lives Matter protesters and pro-President Trump supporters.
