‘A beehive of terrorists’: Donald Trump threatens to deploy national guard in Portland

Donald Trump has called protesters in Portland, Oregon, ‘terrorists’ and threatened to send in the national guard if local authorities cannot disperse them. Speaking at a White House press conference, Trump called the city a ‘beehive of terrorists’ and accused its mayor of incompetence. Despite Oregon’s governor, Kate Brown, saying this week that she had secured an agreement with the White House to withdraw federal forces from the city, protesters have continued to gather in demonstrations that have lasted for more than 60 consecutive days
