Portland Mayor says he’ll move out after Rioters target his condo with fireworks and fire

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler says he’ll move out of his condo after rioters targeted his home by setting off fireworks, setting fires, breaking several windows, vandalizing and more.

“I want to express my sincere apologies for the damage to our home and the fear that you are experiencing due to my position,” Wheeler wrote to the other residents of his condo in a letter “It’s unfair to all of you who have no role in politics or in my administration.”


Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf tweeted Tuesday:

Portland’s mayor has stood by passively, arguing the nightly violence “will ultimately burn itself out.”

The evidence demonstrates otherwise. Again, I urge Portland leaders to prioritize public safety & request federal assistance to restore law & order.
