US President Donald Trump said that the city of Seattle was captured by “Domestic Terrorists” and called on local authorities to return the city, otherwise he threatened to do it on their own.
The head of state has criticized Washington Governor Jay Inslee and Mayor Jenny Durkan for inaction.
Protests and riots in several US cities began after the death in Minneapolis at the hands of African American George Floyd police. A video appeared on the Internet in which the police handcuffed Floyd, knocked him down and fell on him three, one of them stepping on his neck with his knee.
Floyd on the video several times repeats that he can’t breathe, then he stops. He died in intensive care. After the riots started, four policemen were fired, and one of them was accused of negligence.
