HOW THIS PROTEST IN PORTLAND MIGHT SHAPE THE OUTCOME OF NOVEMBER’S ELECTION.
If Trump wins a second term—especially if his victory relies on a rural surge to overcome opposition across the big metros—the chaos in Portland might look like the preliminary skirmish for an even more incendiary collision to come, @RonBrownstein writes. https://t.co/kgemxeWC2C

Reacting to that story by the Atlantic , a man who identifies himself as Silver Ferbs on twitter wrote “He already HAS split the country into two. That’s the entirety of his political strategy. The question is which of the two has the numbers AND shows up to vote in contested states to get to 270.”
Supporting Trump’s actions in Portland, @Serafinos wrote “Correction If President Trump loses — what’s happening in Portland will be every city across the nation because Democrats and idiot newspapers like the Atlantic appease the mob rule, who do nothing but demand more and more. You literally are inciting them”

I work in downtown Portland. Let me be clear about somethings. The city has not been destroyed. And the terrorists are wearing camo and riot gear.
