During a Friday Press Conference, despite 99 consecutive days of unrest in Portland, Oregon Mayor Kate Brown (D-OR) claimed the National Guard are not needed and not trained to help.

Brown said “In terms of Oregon, I’m relying on our trained law enforcement. The Superintendent of the State Police, Travis Hampton, the Portland Police Chief, Chuck Lovell, Travis — Superintendent Hampton would say that.”

She continued “We don’t need the National Guard at this time, and B. That they are not trained for this work. What we need on the ground is trained law enforcement.”

“And that’s why I created the uniform law enforcement plan, to bring both local and state officials together behind a plan to keep people safe and to protect free speech rights” she added.
