As revealed by the New York Post, President Trump’s order targets New York, Washington, Seattle and Portland, where authorities allowed “lawless” protests and slashed police budgets amid increased violence.

“My administration will not allow federal tax dollars to fund cities that allow themselves to deteriorate and become lawless zones,” Trump said in the memo that, according to the Post, twice mentions New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, by his name.

The amounts of money affected by Trump’s order could be huge.

The city’s security body has also complained about the temporary suspension of the judicial system, the release of prisoners to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in prisons, and the loss of respect for officers amid national protests against police brutality have contributed to the growth of violence.

The authorities, for their part, although they coincide with some elements of the diagnosis, put the emphasis on the economic crisis unleashed by the pandemic and even some political leaders have accused the Police of slowing down their actions to ensure that the peak of violence does not decrease, an extreme that the police leaders have categorically denied.

Trump ignores racism at the root of protests and advocates a strong hand

President Donald Trump again avoided talking about racism and social injustice as the root of the protests that are taking place in various parts of the country, and assured that the protesters “only understand force”, without resorting to any kind of tone conciliator despite the fact that the tensions have caused victims in the mobilizations.

Meanwhile, his rival in the November general election, Democrat Joe Biden, announced that he will travel to Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Thursday, the scene of the latest riots, after a police officer left the young black Jacob Blake badly injured, unarmed and that he was shot seven times in the back on August 23.

Trump, who visited Kenosha on Tuesday despite opposition from local authorities who considered that the president does not contribute to reducing tension, said on Twitter today that Biden “is not on the side of the forces of order”, and that that was something “Spectacularly evident” in the president’s visit to that town in Wisconsin.

Trump once again resorted to his electoral mantra of “law and order” and to describe as “looters and rioters” to all those who protest, so that the problem of racism behind the death of young black men at the hands of police forces is addressed.

“If there are violent crowds, they just have to call me and we will solve it in an hour,” said the president, referring to the offer of federal agents to quell the protests in the city of Portland (Oregon), which this weekend turned violent when A column of vehicles with Trump flags clashed with protesters critical of the Police.

In those clashes, in which Trump supporters arrived armed and used pepper spray and air pistols, a member of the conservative side was shot dead, allegedly at the hands of someone who defined himself as “anti-fascist.”
