(NewsReady.com) – For months riots have raged in American cities. Portland, for example, has been under siege for almost 100 days. President Donald Trump has asked the Liberal leaders there to allow him to send in help, and they have refused. Now, he’s taking matters into his own hands.
On September 2, Trump reportedly wrote a memo targeting federal funding to four liberal cities. The president asked the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Russell Vought, to send directives to all of the executive departments asking for details on the money New York City, Portland, Seattle, and Washington DC receive. The memo states his administration won’t fund lawless cities.
Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D), who has been sparring with Trump for months, responded with a tweet.
Trump threatens to withdraw federal funds, possibly including health, education and safety net dollars Americans need to get through the pandemic and economic crisis. Again, he targets cities – including ours – with democratic Mayors, which he calls “anarchist jurisdictions.”

Wheeler thinks Trump is the one threatening cities, but his refusal to allow the president to send in federal law enforcement to support Portland’s police officers is far more dangerous. The mayor’s inaction, and the neglect of the other Leftist leaders, are turning once beautiful metropolitan areas into cesspools. Perhaps they should get their houses in order, so the commander-in-chief doesn’t have to do their jobs for them.
