Right, Left Clash Over Portland Killing

“It’s you who have created the hate and the division.” That was Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler’s charge against President Donald Trump, after an unbroken 90 days of protests in the Oregon city came to a head Saturday. Pickup trucks waving Trump flags drove through protests firing paintballs at demonstrators. Now police are investigating the fatal shooting of a man still officially unidentified — though Trump retweeted a post naming him as Jay Bishop, a member of right-wing group Patriot Prayer. Meanwhile, Gov. Kate Brown announced a plan to bring law enforcement and the community together, blaming “armed right-wing vigilantes” for the violence.
