Trump says Federal agents will stay in Portland until police 'clean-up'

Trump says Federal agents will stay in Portland until police 'clean-up'

Washington, Aug 1 (UNI) President Donald Trump said on Saturday that the federal officers deployed in the city of Portland will not be withdrawing any time soon and continue to stay in the city until local law enforcement officials "clean-up of anarchists and agitators" completely.

The federal forces, whose deployment was seen by many as part of the president's law-and-order strategy for re-election had exacerbated tensions between authorities and anti-racism protesters. They had been scheduled to begin their phased withdrawal from Portland.

"Homeland Security is not leaving Portland until local police complete cleanup of Anarchists and Agitators!", Trump tweeted.

Hundreds of demonstrators, some with makeshift shields, were still on the streets of downtown Portland late on Friday, but no federal law enforcement officers were in sight.

Earlier on Friday, Portland police had succeeded in clearing the parks and nearby roads around the city centre in anticipation of the phased pullout by federal forces.

City Mayor Ted Wheeler said the deployment was part of the agreement for federal officers to leave.
