WATCH: Portland Mayor Says Rioters were “Attempting to Commit Murder”

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) spoke out against rioters in Portland who set fire to a police station and blocked exits while officers were inside.

“When you commit arson” Wheeler said “with an accelerant, in an attempt to burn down a building that is occupied by people you have intentionally trapped inside, you are not demonstrating, you are attempting to commit murder.

Trey Gowdy and other hosts on “The Five” pointed the blame finger right back at Wheeler.
