Even the rioters he’s trying to defend doesn’t even like him.
Ted Wheeler recently did a press conference and blamed Trump for all of Portland’s problems.
In his rant, he said Trump was racist, sexist, and the reason why there is so much hate and division in America.
Trump fired back in a series of tweets.

Trump fired back with this response to Ted Wheeler:
CNN reported the remarks Ted Wheeler made and had these details to share:
The Democratic mayor of Portland, Oregon, said Sunday it is President Donald Trump who “created the hate” in an unyielding attack on the White House following a shooting at a protest that left one person dead.Speaking at a news conference, Mayor Ted Wheeler asked, “Do you seriously wonder, Mr. President, why this is the first time in decades that America has seen this level of violence?”“It’s you who have created the hate and the division. It’s you who have not found a way to say the names of Black people killed by police officers even as people in law enforcement have. And it’s you who claimed that White supremacists are good people,” he continued. “Your campaign of fear is as anti-democratic as anything you’ve done to create hate and vitriol in our beautiful country.”His forceful comments come one day after a person was shot and killed in downtown Portland after an evening of violent clashes between Trump supporters and protesters denouncing police brutality.

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler’s attempt to blame President Trump for the violent confrontation that led to the killing of a Patriot Prayer supporter in the Oregon city over the weekend represents “epic levels of gaslighting,” Ben Shapiro said Monday.
Wheeler, “the worst mayor in America” by Shapiro, blamed Trump in a fiery press conference Sunday for creating “the hate” in his city and again rejected the president’s offer to send in federal law enforcement, telling him to “stay the hell out of the way.”
“He says Trump has to stay the hell out of the way,” the “Ben Shapiro Show” host told listeners. “Weird, because Trump has mainly stayed the hell out of the way and your city’s been on fire for the past three months, you stupid jackass.”
Wheeler’s comments come after Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden suggested that rioting and violence in cities across America is a hallmark of “Donald Trump’s America,” a sentiment Shapiro called “bullcrap.”
I agree with the President, Portland is a mess and their mayor has shown he’s unable to deal with the violence.
Portland needs federal assistance and they need it now.
