Portland, Ore. — The serenity of downtown Portland will be tested yet again Saturday afternoon. Stores began closing Friday night ahead of dueling protests between groups of right-wing extremists and anti-fascist demonstrators.
Several extremist groups are expected to show up, but no one has applied for any type of permit. Police learned about the protest from monitoring social media, and from what they read, there is concern for possible violence.
In recent years, Portland has become a magnet for protests, some of them turning ugly. Several groups from the far-left and far-right said they will converge in the city's downtown. Police said its nearly 1,000 member force will be on duty.Portland braces for violence at far-right rally — entire police force will be on duty

Donald Trump has already decided that whatever happens is the fault of antifa protesters, despite the fact that it was the violent right wing Proud Boys who organized the rally.

Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an “ORGANIZATION OF TERROR.” Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!

(psst, Donnie - antifa is not an organization)

Isn’t it telling that ‘the least racist person in the world’ calls out those protesting white supremacy and white nationalism, way ahead of any actions, in a place where the white nazis were the ones actually calling for the protests and confrontation.

Not a single racist bone in his body.. sure.
