Trump mocks Portland mayor at being tear-gassed

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler attended a protest on Wednesday night only to be tear-gassed. President Trump took to Twitter stating that he (Wheeler) ’made a fool out of himself.’ ’He wanted to be among the people, so he went into the crowd. And so they knocked the hell out of him, so that was the end of him,’ he added.

A lot of people in this comments section are confused about the authority of the mayor. He has no authority over the federal troops and has repeatedly asked them to leave, citing 1st and 4th amendment concerns. Trump is playing his hand like a 3rd world dictator, sending in unmarked and unaccountable troops to quell social unrest. Cracking down on protesters in this way resembles the CCP's handling of the Hong Kong protests.
