US President Donald Trump has announced the deployment of federal security forces to Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and other major cities to respond to protests against racism and police violence, despite the controversy in Portland, where agents without suspects were identified in camouflaged vehicles brought away.
During an act by the Oval Office, Trump was asked for information in the press indicating that federal troops were being sent to these cities to strengthen local authorities. “Well, it depends on what you mean by federal forces. We will send security forces,” he said.
Trump has pointed to an increase in violence in Chicago and New York, especially after the increase in shootings in recent weeks. In the case of New York, it has blamed local and state agencies – Democrats – for limiting police response.
“I’m going to do something because we don’t allow New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, Baltimore, and cities like Oakland to be a mess. We won’t let it happen in our country. They’re all ruled by Liberal Democrats.” has riveted.
