Seattle Mayor Durkan: We Are Seeing A "Dry Run" For Martial Law By Trump

|

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan speaks out after demonstrations in her city against police violence and the presence of federal law enforcement in cities like Portland, Oregon left 59 police officers injured. Durkan, who called the protests a potential "summer of love," accused President Trump of using recent crackdown by law enforcement as a "dry run" for martial law.

"He's clearly targeted cities ran by Democratic mayors, he's said so himself," Durkan complained. "He's using law enforcement as a political tool."


"I hate to say it," she continued, "but I really believe that we are seeing a dry run for martial law. This is a president that is using law enforcement and federal forces for political purposes and that should be chilling to every American."
