BREAKING NEWS: BRAVO!!! BIDEN NOMINATES TWO DEMOCRATS AND A VOTING RIGHTS ADVOCATE TO THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE BOARD. This will give Democrats the votes to get rid of Trump's Postmaster Louis DeJoy, who shamelessly slowed down the delivery of mail-in votes to try to help Trump steal the election.
AMerican Guess who is now in charge of the House Financial Services Committee, (and can investigate Trump's finances): Maxine Waters. The same woman called "an extraordinarily low IQ person" last June. Look out, Trump... Your secrets are about to be shouted from the rooftops! #45 IS IN DEEP TROUBLE NOW... BECAUSE NOW THERE'S SOMEONE WHO CAN LOOK AT HIS FINANCIAL RECORDS THAT'S NOT AFRAID OF HIM!!

What can be done about this? The Portland Mayor, Oregon Governor, Senators and Representatives are condemning Trump's deployment of federal agents Congressional Democrats need to immediately investigate this use of federal law enforcement and work towards overturning the president's executive order Presidential candidate Joe Biden needs to make clear that if elected, he will punish officers that break the law and place accountability measures on federal law enforcement agencies If the executive order is legal, Congress needs to create and implement new legislation to prevent future presidents from repeating this The ACLU just filed a lawsuit to fight the presence of federal agents in Portland Most importantly, if you live in Portland, please stay safe! @theslacktivists
Why is Portland being targeted? Portland has been on Trump's radar previously as Oregon is a politically divided state Trump could be trying to gain support from rural Oregonians outside of Portland, which is politically conservative Portland is small enough for a federal law enforcement "trial run," but still nationally relevant to test potential federal intervention in larger cities Trump's actions in Portland can be used as a showcase of political strength in red areas across the country and to ignite his base Having federal agents in Portland is especially dangerous because of the city's divisive history of violent clashes between right-wing_and left-wing groups, _recently publicized in national media @theslacktivists
