AP FACT CHECK: Trump tweets distort truth on National Guard

  AP FACT CHECK: Trump tweets distort truth on National Guard WASHINGTON (AP) — It's become a pattern when unrest flares in a city: President Donald Trump suggests he has National Guard troops ready to send to the scene and takes credit for dispatching them and restoring calm while he accuses Democrats of being squishy on law and order. That's a distortion. Trump omits the fact that he is largely a bystander in National Guard deployments. While presidents can tap rarely used powers to use federal officers for local law enforcement, there is no National Guard with national reach for Trump to send around the country.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Mel Reid shot a 7-under 65 on her 33rd birthday Saturday to take a two-stroke lead over defending champion Hannah Green into the final round of the Cambia Portland Classic.

Reid closed her bogey-free afternoon round with a birdie on the par-4 18th at Columbia Edgewater. Winless on the LPGA Tour, the English player had a 12-under 132 total in the event reduced to 54 holes because of poor air quality caused by wildfires.

Police arrest 15 more after overnight protests in Portland

  Police arrest 15 more after overnight protests in Portland Police arrest 15 more after overnight protests in PortlandProtesters set fire on some mattresses that were put out eventually by firefighters, Portland police said in a statement.

''Put myself in a great position, a position that everyone wants to be in, so I'm excited for the opportunity tomorrow,'' Reid said. ''Just keep doing the same thing and see where tomorrow afternoon takes us.''

Reid closed the front nine with four straight birdies and added another on the 11th. She's in position for her first victory a week after tying for seventh in the major ANA Inspiration in the California desert.

''I felt like I hit it really good last week, so kind of took that momentum going into this week,'' Reid said. ''I think it did me a favor having an extra day off. I was pretty tired from last week.''

Green, tied with Cydney Clanton for the first-round lead after a 66, made a long birdie putt on the 18th for a 68.

''It was definitely slower than yesterday,'' Green said. ''I got off to such a great start, so always hard to back up a low round. Really happy with my last putt. Holed a long bomb there, so gives me another positive momentum for tomorrow. Hopefully, I can get the pace of the greens a little bit better and give myself opportunities.''

The 23-year-old Australian, also the major KPMG Women's PGA Championship winner in a breakthrough 2019 season, matched the tournament 72-hole scoring record last year at 21 under.

Amy Yang (66) and Amy Olson (68) were tied for third at 9 under.

''I love being in contention. It's so fun,'' Olson said. ''It's what we play for, what we practice for.''

Georgia Hall (66), Celine Boutier (67), Yealimi Noh (69) and Gaby Lopez (69) were 8 under.

Clanton had a 77 to drop 11 strokes back at 1 under.

Sophia Popov was 4 under after a 69 in her first start as an LPGA Tour member. The German won the Women's British Open, but missed the ANA Inspiration because the field was set in April when it was postponed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Reid postponed her birthday party a day.

''Celebrations will start tomorrow no matter what for my birthday.'' Reid said. ''I've got to be well behaved tonight and I was well behaved last night, which is shocking to many people.''
