Last night was the first night that the federal agents sent to Portland by Donald Trump were removed from the job. Instead, the governor of Oregon had state police guard federal property, with orders to de-escalate tensions.
And it worked! My favorite headline is “Portland sees peaceful night of protests following withdrawal of federal agents”. There was no teargas, no stun grenades, or baton rounds. The protesters responded by keeping things peaceful too. In other words, back to the way they were before Trump sent in DHS agents who acted like an occupying army.
Yet another retreat by Trump.
