Over 100 days of rioting and unrest continues in major U.S. cities following the death of George Floyd in May. Labor Day weekend was no exception. While some cities saw their first round of chaos this week, others suffered yet another long night of injuries, arrests, and fires.
President Trump condemned the weekend violence in a tweet calling out the “Radical Left Democrat Governors and Mayors” for “weakly” managing the continuing riots.
On Saturday, rioters threw objects, yelled, and pushed back on police in Portland. Reports of “firebombs, rocks, mortars,” and other objects were thrown at officers who “used tear gas for the first time in weeks” according to local news.
