President Trump Monday attacked Washington state’s Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee and Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin for failing to disperse the “autonomous zone” set up in the city, saying he remains prepared to act if they don’t.
Maybe, since it’s basically a foreign country, he should send Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to negotiate. Or maybe we could just start trading with them. I wonder what they make there? Mostly a mess, it looks like.
Trump spoke at the White House:
You have a governor who doesn’t do a damn thing about it, and you have a mayor that doesn’t know she’s alive. If they don’t do the job, I’ll do the job. So, look, the governor has to call out the troops, do what he has to do, has to call out the National Guard. Has to do something. Because you know the problem with what happened in Seattle is it spreads. And all of a sudden they’ll say let’s do some other city. We’re not going to let it happen. So, timing wise, hey, we’re all set to go. We’re watching the process. But the most amazing thing about the process is how the fake news media doesn’t want to cover it.
