Trump Brags About Sending 75,000 ‘Tough’ Federal Agents to American Cities
President Donald Trump openly mused on Thursday night about sending tens of thousands of federal agents into major U.S. cities experiencing unrest, claiming he could “solve these problems so fast” if those cities just “invited” the 75,000 “tough” feds he supposedly has ready to go.
Trump, who recently announced a “surge” of hundreds of FBI and Justice Department personnel into Chicago to ostensibly combat violent crime, mused openly about his recent “law and order” push with Fox News host and close confidant Sean Hannity.
The president first brought up Portland, which is currently the scene of a federal crackdown on anti-racism protesters, boasting that he dispatched DHS agents and unmarked federal authorities “because they are anarchists.”
“That is a level people haven’t seen,” the president bellowed. “But they are anarchists. They were going wild for 51 days. And we went in and they’ve done a great job. They were going to rip down the courthouse, a gorgeous federal courthouse. So we went in and we have been very, very strong.”
