Seattle mayor accuses Trump of decreasing public safety by sending feds: BLM meantime trying to blow precinct and courthouse with bomb van
According to the head of Seattle, Jenny Durkan, US President Donald Trump running a “dress rehearsal for martial law.” After two months of unsuccessful attempts to negotiate with protesters or at least quell violent protests in Seattle by local authorities, the White House has dispatched hundreds of anonymous federal agents to the cities most affected by protesters.
The move did not like the mayor of Seattle and Durkan accused Trump of inciting violence.
“I hate to say it, but it looks like this president is doing a dress rehearsal for martial law, sending in federal forces to take over police duties in city after city for political purposes,” the mayor told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Monday. “It is frightening and it’s making things worse. It has not improved public safety, it has decreased public safety.”

Earlier this week, local police managed to arrest an unidentified van carrying several dozen homemade explosives and other weapons.
