The Feds Invited Themselves
As the rhetorical answer to the title of the editorial “Who Invited the Feds?” (July 30), the Portland invasion served as the perfect pretext for President Donald Trump to distract attention from his gross incompetence in responding to the pandemic that has claimed the lives thus far of more than 150,000 Americans.
Neither Operation Valor nor Operation Legend, as far as Trump is concerned, has anything to do with the proper role of federal law enforcement activities in cities throughout the country experiencing waves of violent crime and protests.
As Mary Trump, the president’s niece and a clinical psychologist has written, he “requires division. It is the only way he knows how to survive.”
