Federal agencies withdraw

Tensions have been high in Portland since the administration of President Donald Trump in late June sent federal agents to protect federal property and monuments amid continuing protests that have persisted across the country since the police killing of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man, on May 25.

The unrest had grown to a fever pitch in recent weeks, amid crackdowns by federal agents in which they fired tear gas and projectiles at gathered crowds and detained some protesters in unmarked vehicles far from federal property.

Earlier this week, Oregon Governor Kate Brown announced the federal officers sent by Trump were to begin a phased withdrawal, with state police taking over outside the federal court that has become the centre of protests.

Federal officials, however, have pushed back, saying they would not leave the city completely but be on standby in case they are needed.

On Friday, Trump tweeted that "Homeland Security is not leaving Portland until local police complete cleanup of Anarchists and Agitators!"
