The Trump campaign unleashed a devastating attack on former Vice President Joe Biden’s silence on the nationwide unrest.
On Saturday a Trump supporter was gunned down in the streets of Portland, Oregon – a city ravaged by months of violent and bloody protests.
“Joe Biden just yesterday indicated he would not send the National Guard into cities and states where left-wing mobs are rioting – in Portland’s case, for more than three months,” Trump communications director Tim Murtaugh said.

“Last month he issued a written statement specifically about Portland, in which he called the rioters ‘peaceful protestors’ and accused federal law enforcement officers of ‘stoking the fires of division’ while the mob was literally setting fire to the federal courthouse.,” he pointed out.

Following Biden’s lead, the leftist mayor of Portland continues to reject President Trump’s offer of federal assistance to quell the riots that have now raged for 95 days and resulted in death, the campaign said.
“For three months, Joe Biden remained silent on the rampant violence and destruction overtaking Democrat-run cities, where Biden’s allies have rejected federal assistance and ordered local police to let rioters run wild,” said Murtaugh.
And then he dropped a bombshell.
“Biden’s campaign even helped bail accused violent criminals out of jail, including a murderer, a rapist, and a rioter who shot at police,” he said.
At least 13 Biden campaign staffers said they had contributed to the Minnesota Freedom Fund – a nonprofit that bails out criminals.
Fox 9 in Minneapolis reports that some of the people released on bail included those charged with violent crimes.
“It’s obvious that law-abiding Americans will be on their own if Biden and his allies are elected in November. You won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America,” Murtaugh said.
