Violent rioters tear down Lincoln statue, President Trump reacts

President Donald Trump reacted after protestors toppled statues of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt in Portland overnight. He said “Biden fools” and “Antifa radicals” were responsible as local Democratic leadership failed to bring in federal law enforcement.

In a tweet on Monday, Trump wrote placeholder“These are Biden fools. ANTIFA RADICALS. Get them FBI, and get them now!” This was in response to a video showing the toppled statue of Abraham Lincoln in Portland’s South Park Block. The words “Stolen Land” are spray-painted across the concrete base.

Trump responded to another video, which shows a statue of Roosevelt riding horseback, as someone in the crowd is heard shouting, “F— all you colonizers. Every one of you that’s against Black Lives Matter can f— the f— off.” The crowd in Portland shouts as the statue, wrapped in rope, sways back and forth before it topples to the ground.

“Put these animals in jail, now. The Radical Left only knows how to take advantage of very dumb ‘leadership’ fools. This is Biden! Law & Order!” Trump wrote.
