As violence continues to rage in Portland, with local police failing to get organized anarchists under control, President Trump is urging officials to call in the National Guard.

Meanwhile in Chicago, riots erupted over the weekend and a series of brazen attacks were carried out on police.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot slammed looters and rioters who descended upon the downtown area early Monday morning, calling the overnight events “an assault on our city” and telling criminals, “We are coming for you.”

“Car caravans” of looters made their way into Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, Gold Coast and Irving North neighborhoods and neighboring commercial districts overnight, which officials believe was spurred by a police-involved shooting in Englewood earlier in the day.

At the scene of the South Side shooting, “tempers flared fueled by misinformation as the afternoon turned into the evening,” said Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown.
