Seattle, a city in the northwestern United States in Washington State, has been captured by “domestic terrorists,” President Donald Trump said on Twitter Thursday, June 11.
“Internal terrorists, run by radical left-wing democrats of course, have taken over Seattle,” Trump wrote.
The American president criticized the actions of local authorities in the fight against the unrest that began in the country after the death of African American George Floyd at the hands of police.
Trump said the protesters are “mocking” Washington State Governor Jay Inseley and Seattle Mayor Jenny Derkan, and called on the state authorities to “get their city back now.
“If you don’t do it, I will. These terrible anarchists need to be stopped immediately,” Trump wrote.
On June 8, it was reported that one person was injured during the protests in Seattle. A car drove into a crowd of protesters, the driver got out of the car and opened fire. The victim was hospitalized.
