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

"We're sending law enforcement," Trump told reporters at the White House. "We can't let this happen to the cities."

Trump mentioned New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, Baltimore and Oakland as possible places to send in federal forces, noting the cities' mayors are "liberal Democrats."
