.. Share this article Share The demonstrations against racism and police brutality - ignited two months ago by the death in Minneapolis of unarmed African-American George Floyd - come as Trump faces an increasingly tough battle for re-election, and is campaigning on a 'law and order' platform.He has met stiff resistance from big city mayors, like Lori Lightfoot of Chicago, many of them Democrats who accuse Trump of magnifying the problem for political gain.'I have drawn a very hard line. We'll not allow federal troops in our city,' Lightfoot said on CNN's 'State of the Union.''We will not tolerate unnamed agents taking people off the street, violating their rights and holding them in custody.' Protesters marched in Austin, Texas, as well as Louisville, Kentucky; New York (demonstrators pictured Saturday night); Omaha, Nebraska; California's Oakland and Los Angeles, and Richmond in Virginia Demonstrators took to the streets in New York on Saturday to stand in solidarity with other large cities across the US where President Donald Trump has threatened to send federal agents New Yorkers made their way to Times Square on Saturday night for a demonstration   In Seattle (pictured, demonstrator being arrested on Saturday), police arrested 45 people during a night of violent protests in which demonstrators set fire to trailers by a construction site for a youth detention facility Police push a demonstrator to the ground during protests in Seattle on Saturday A demonstrator kneels in front of police with his hands in the air during protests in Seattle on Saturday  Federal agents were sent to Portland, Oregon (pictured early Sunday morning), nearly two weeks ago by the Trump administration, which has threatened to send more federal officers to other major citiesProtesters marched in Austin, Texas, as well as Louisville, Kentucky; New York; Omaha, Nebraska; California's Oakland and Los Angeles, and Richmond in Virginia.In Seattle, police arrested 45 people during a night of violent protests in which demonstrators set fire to trailers by a construction site for a youth detention facility.Protesters slashed car tires and smashed trailer windows, prompting police to declare a riot and clear the streets with pepper spray and flash-bang grenades.Police Chief Carmen Best implored people to 'come in peace to the city,' and castigated the demonstrators.'The rioters had no regard for the community's safety, for officers' safety or for the businesses and property that they destroyed,' local media quoted her as saying.In Portland, police and federal agents fired tear gas and forcefully dispersed protesters early Sunday.Police moved in after a group of protesters tried to pull down a fence erected around a federal courthouse.Portland has taken center stage for the highly controversial crackdown by federal agents ordered by Trump - one that is not supported by local officials, and which many say smacks of authoritarianism.Saturday's demonstration began peacefully, with crowds playing music and dancing, blowing soap bubbles and attaching red roses to the barricades. Protesters carry painted riot shields during a march on Saturday in Oakland, California One Oakland demonstrator is seen holding a sign that reads 'abolish the police' during a protest on Saturday  Oakland protesters gather to condemn the use of federal troops in major US cities on Saturday Hundreds of protesters were seen marching during a demonstration in Oakland on Saturday  Officers arrest a woman in front of the US courthouse in downtown Los Angeles during a protest on Saturday  A demonstrator holds a 'black trans lives matter' sign during a Los Angeles protest on Saturday But it ended - like many before it - with tear gas fired after protesters attached ropes to barricades surrounding the city's courthouse in an attempt to pull them down.Portland police declared the area a riot, ordering protesters to leave, before they were joined by federal officers to clear the area.Portland police earlier confirmed a man was stabbed, with the suspect 'held down by protesters' before he was detained by officers and charged with assault, according to a statement.The victim was transported to hospital with a serious injury. The inspector general of the US Justice Department on Thursday opened an official investigation into the federal crackdown, but an Oregon federal judge on Friday rejected a legal bid by the state to stop agents from detaining protesters.Trump last week announced a 'surge' of federal agents to crime hotspots including Chicago, following an increase in violence in the nation's third-largest city.Federal authorities said agents deployed there would partner with local law enforcement, not serve as riot-control forces as seen in Portland.
