I didn't vote for Trump in either election and think he is a blowhard. But let's inject some facts here."The entire city [of Portland, Oregon] is ablaze all the time."

Yes, he actually said that. I think it's safe to say, however, that we can trust the former President in all things (it's not like he had over 30K lies or misleading statements during his four-year term).
Anyway, if one wants to blame upticks in violence (still lower than national average for such a city) on "anarchists" which also means antifa, I suppose, instead of run-of-the-mill criminals, that's an interesting take.
Crime in Portland, Oregon (OR): murders, rapes, robberies, assaults, burglaries, thefts, auto thefts, arson, law enforcement employees, police officers, crime mapI believe MrRook said he lived there 20 yrs and his wife grew up there. I would think he should know what's going on there.
I would like to give you an opportunity to tell about your experience living in or visiting Portland. Like I said earlier I'm an Independent, and was a Blue Dog Democrat in the past before the move left of the party. Also just because someone identifies as Conservative doesn't make them a Fascist just like identifying as a Democrat doesn't make them a Communist. I believe people need to meet in the middle and find common ground in todays political climate.
