Portland Mayor (D) Ted Wheeler attempted to persuade rioters to stop destroying the city by warning vandals that they are a "prop for the reelection campaign" of President Donald Trump. The Democratic mayor also lashed out at insurgents who tried to burn down a police station in residential Portland, and accused them of "attempting to commit murder."

Wheeler held a virtual press conference on Thursday to discuss this week's bedlam in the city, which included protesters verbally abusing two elderly women and splashing paint on one of the women.
