President Donald Trump has previously vowed to protect federal property from destruction, prompting his government to send in federal agents to suppress demonstrations.

But on Saturday, gruesome photos showed those same agents tearing up a crowd, including a group of mothers peacefully protesting their ‘wall of mothers.’

Despite the aggressive response from federal agents, the protesters were back on Sunday.

Tweets from Monday’s protest, including one from Mike Baker, a New York Times correspondent, estimate that the crowd had risen to as many as 2,000 people, despite federal agents.

Speaking about CNN State of the Union, Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler said federal officers are not wanted here. We didn’t ask them here. We even want them to leave. ‘

Trump turned down the demonstrations in Portland, and Homeland Security minister Chad Wolf accused protesters as “lawless anarchists” on a visit to the city on Thursday.

“We’re trying to help Portland, not hurt it,” Trump tweeted Sunday.

Their leadership has lost control of the anarchists and agitators for months. They are missing from action. We must protect federal property AND OUR PEOPLE. These weren’t just protesters, this is the real deal! ‘

In a statement, authorities explained that tear gas had been used on protesters after some protesters broke into a building on Saturday night, set it on fire, and started dumpster fires.

The fire at the Portland Police Association building was extinguished a short time later, Portland police said on Twitter.

The department stated that the meeting was a riot and started working on cleaning up the inner city.

When the crowd dispersed, several people in the crowd were arrested and officers were able to extinguish the fire. Portland police did not use CS gas, ‘the agency said in a statement in early Sunday.
