WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Monday said he plans to send law enforcement personnel to some major U.S. cities, as a federal crackdown on anti-racism protests including use of unmarked cars and unidentified officers in camouflage in Portland, Oregon, angers people across the country.

“We can’t let this happen to the cities,” Trump told reporters at the White House, referring to the often unruly protests in the historically liberal city. “The politicians out there are afraid of these people.”
