He’s gone insane.
According to Breitbart News, House Majority Whip James Clyburn attacked President Donald Trump and federal officers placed in Portland stating “nobody asked” them to send over “stormtroopers in order to incite people.”
“Who protects that federal courthouse every day of the week? Who protected it two months ago? The local law enforcement people know how to protect property,” argued Clyburn. “They don’t discern between federal or state property. The fact of the matter is, there are federal buildings all over Columbia, South Carolina, and our local law enforcement people protect those buildings. And if they need help in protecting those buildings, they will ask the federal government for help.”
He continued, “Nobody asked the federal government to come into Portland. Nobody asked them to come to Seattle. This is something that’s made up out of whole cloth by this administration as an excuse for sending in stormtroopers in order to incite people.” You can watch a clip of Clyburn’s remarks here.
