Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler said in a confrontation with President Donald Trump: "You have created hatred."


The Democratic mayor of Portland, Oregon, said Sunday that it was President Donald Trump who "created hatred" in a relentless attack on a White House shooting that killed one person.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler said in a confrontation with President Donald Trump: "You have created hatred."


Speaking at a news conference, Mayor Ted Wheeler asked, "Are you seriously wondering, Mr. President, why is this the first time in decades that the United States has seen this level of violence?"

"It's you who created hatred and division. It's you who didn't find a way to name black people killed by police officers, not even law enforcement. And you claim that whites are good people, "he continued. “Your campaign of fear is as anti-democratic as you have done to create hatred and vitriol in our beautiful country."

His outspoken remarks came a day after he was shot’ dead in the town of Portland, condemning police brutality between town supporters and protesters.

For more than 90 consecutive nights, protesters in Portland have rallied against police brutality and racial injustice. The protests were sparked’ by the assassination of George Floyd in May, and police fired it last weekend after Jacob Blake was shot’ in Wisconsin.

Wheeler personally lamented to Trump that "for four years we have had to live with racist attacks on you and your black people."

"We have learned from the beginning about your sexuality with women. We have to put up with clips of you making fun of a disabled person. We have to listen to your anti-democratic attacks on journalists. "The point of receiving death threats and we have heard the sound of your attacks on immigrants," he said.

"We've heard you label Mexican rapists. We've heard you say that John McCain was not a hero because he was a prisoner of war. And now, you're attacking democratic mayors and these institutions of democracy." Who have served this nation well since its inception? "

Wheeler's message provoked a string of tweets from the president on Sunday afternoon, calling the mayor a "wiki."

"Portland will never give up on a fool for the mayor," Trump said. He would like to accuse me and the federal government of going in, but he has not seen anything yet. We are only here with our small group of Americans to defend our America. Court House, because he couldn't do that. "

Relying on his campaign, Trump added, "The people of Portland, like other great cities and parts of our great country, want peace and order."

The tweets immediately reprimanded the president over Wheeler's news conference, asking him to deal with the unrest as mayor.

"President Trump, you don't bring peace. You have no respect for our democracy. You, Mr. President, you need to do your job as the leader of this nation, and I, Mr. President, as its mayor. I will do my job from the city, "he said.

"And we will both be held accountable, as we should be."
