Police in Portland, Oregon were forced to use stun grenades on an anti-Donald Trump protest that turned into a riot on Thursday night after cars were smashed, buildings and cars vandalized and fires started.
Daily Mail reported that 29 people were arrested in the northwestern city following the third straight night of protests following Trump’s victory. Protests also continued in other cities like New York, Philadelphia and Oakland, which also voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton.
Trump took to Twitter to blame “professional protesters” for the protests.
“Just had a very open and successful presidential election,” he wrote. “Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!”
Disturbing video footage shows a mob in Portland vandalizing buildings and cars and then fighting with each other.
“It’s a warzone. Cops throwing flash grenades,” Portland video journalist Mike Bivins tweeted.
“After several orders to disperse, police have used less lethal munitions to effect arrests and move the crowd. (Officers) still taking projectiles,” Portland police tweeted.
“Due to extensive criminal and dangerous behavior, protest is now considered a riot. Crowd has been advised,” they tweeted at 8.30pm local time.
Most of the riots took place in Portland’s Pearl District, an area of upscale homes, boutiques and art galleries. This proves once again that it is actually the RICH WHITE PEOPLE who are protesting Trump, rather than the poor that liberals claim he is persecuting.
