The demonstrators seized a district in the city centre.
The US President Donald trump said that Seattle captured “domestic terrorists,” reports the Chronicle.info with reference to the Correspondent.
Trump claims that the city seized by protesters, headed by radical left-wing Democrats. They began to “sneer” over the Governor of Washington Jay Margie reiger and the mayor of Seattle Jenny Durkan. Trump urged local authorities to resolve the situation and to “reclaim your city now.”
“If you do not do this, I will. These terrible anarchists must be stopped immediately,” — wrote the President.
In response, the mayor of Seattle Jenny Durkan urged trump to stop to assess the actions of local authorities during the protests.
Durkan Twitter advised Trump to “get back to the bunker”. “Securing all of us,” she wrote.
As reported by the New York Times, in the power of the demonstrators was a neighborhood in the center city – Capitol hill, who announced the “Autonomous area of Capitol hill.” The entrance to the neighborhood blocked by barricades.
After a series of clashes with the protesters, militiamen left the local police station, leaving participants without the supervision of the police. It is noted that at this time there were no violence and looting – the people discussed their priorities and made the podium.
