It's another political stunt by Trump in a desperate attempt to win points since he's losing in the polls. And, yes, the fed troops are escalating tensions!

You are so wrong. Why do not Kate and Wheeler stop these rioters from the destruction. The feds are there to protect the federal property. They are doing their job, Kate and Wheeler won't do anything.

These are more like Brownshirts, secret police, masked in unmarked vehicles. Send them back to the Whitehouse.

The USA is not a police state. These *unmarked* enforcement troops have no business in Portland or any other US city. It reeks of fascism.

The feds are acting illegally. They are brutal and violent and have to go; they have no right being here.

It is hard enough for the Governor of any state to do what is right for its people with out the Feds coming in and stirring the pot.

This is not a police state. Federal police state that is. As long as it is peaceful protests, we don't need trump's goons.

The presence of unidentified men throwing American citizens into unmarked cars is what happens in dictatorships. Not only unconstitutional, it should alarm every single American.

They are not wanted and they are not good at what they are trying to do. They are inciting and engaging in more violence than they are discouraging.

We need federal secret police taking over every city in every state. Only King Trump's federal government can save us now. Long live the New Deep State, long live King Trump, there is only He! Amen !!

Trump sends enforcement to stop protests for equality, but governors are left to stop the pandemic. Sad

Federal Troops need to protect the Federal Buildings as long as possible. If they blocked off the whole area it would help. Leave an area open so they can protest in front of Kate Brown's office!

Our State politicians will not do anything about it in fact the Mayor, Wheeler joins the rioters to root them on. We the people need protection and our own State politicians won't give it so yes

Portland and Ted Wheeler has failed to protect the citizens and businesses. After the protesters burn it to the ground I don't want them here next.

Portland is burning and the city , state officials are letting it happen while hamstringing the police. This is NOT the Presidents fault.

Medicare Advantage is not Medicare. They are private plans run by corporations for the purpose of extracting as much money out of Medicar beneficiaries and the government as possible. It is private insurance and a Republican plan to destroy actual Medicare. It costs taxpayers a lot more than actual

Because, as always is the case, the far right terrorizes voters with false claims of "socialism" and a single-payer system.

THATS for sure! I was told years ago that a monopoly is illegal in the USA but apparently St Charles found its way around that. They own every single hospital and most of the clinics here.

Not yet but everything we do today contributes to the issue nonetheless... Always better to be ahead of the game and do what's best no matter what.
