As Trump Vows War, Protesters Mull Peace

“This is what Trump wants,” exclaimed Portland, Oregon, protester Dan Thomas as demonstrators swarmed a federal building. By sending paramilitary federal agents there and to other cities, Thomas warned, President Donald Trump “wants to label Black Lives Matter a terrorist organization.” That’s also the fear of officials in cities being targeted by “Operation Legend,” an effort Trump announced Wednesday to send officers from four agencies to combat “bloodshed” that he claims erupted from protesters’ “anti-police crusade.” But federal law enforcement officials are calling it a “partnership” with local authorities — unrelated to the shadowy unmarked force in Portland.
