Portland protesters burn American flags as Trump vows ‘clean up of anarchists’.

DONALD Trump said federal agents will not leave Portland unless local police “complete cleanup of Anarchists and Agitators” as the city’s protests continued.

Over the last 60 days, the president has declared that Portland has been overrun with “thugs” and “rioters,” as Trump ordered federal agents into the city to bring “law and order.”

In a tweet, Trump said, “Homeland Security is not leaving Portland until local police complete cleanup of Anarchists and Agitators!”

Just after midnight, protesters in Portland began starting fire on the street where the federal courthouse is located, which started with burning a bible, then an American flag.

Members of the Moms United for Black Lives Matter, put out the fire as an attempt to keep the protests peaceful.
