President Trump threatened to take back Seattle from protesters, tweeting that ugly anarchists must be stooped.
In response, state and local politicians told him to go back to his bunker beneath the White House; and keep out of local business.
Earlier this week, Seattle police left the area and demonstrators took over, cordoning off several blocks they declared the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, now the site of peaceful protests.
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan said the police pullback was done to proactively de-escalate interactions between protestors and law enforcement. But Trump was unhappy with the move even though it at least temporarily worked.
Radical Left Governor JayInslee and the Mayor of Seattle are being taunted and played at a level that our great Country has never seen before. Take back your city NOW. If you dont do it, I will. This is not a game. These ugly Anarchists must be stooped IMMEDIATELY. MOVE FAST!
Donald J. Trump
Domestic Terrorists have taken over Seattle, run by Radical Left Democrats, of course. LAW & ORDER!
Durkan fired back by referring to the White House bunker Trump was rushed to as demonstrations broke out in D.C.:
Mayor Jenny Durkan
Make us all safe. Go back to your bunker.
Rep. Pramila Jayapal, who represents Seattle in Congress, also made a reference to the bunker incident:
Rep. Pramila Jayapal
Dont you have a bunker to be in?
Washington Gov. Jay Inslee also told the president to butt out:
A man who is totally incapable of governing should stay out of Washington states business. Stoop tweeting.

Well it appears that the Seattle government can’t do it. So anything coming out of these narcissists is laughable.
Protestors? Since when do peaceful protestors kidnap people living in a six block area and force them to illegal ID checks?
There is no respect for the office of the presidency on the left at this point. Unless there’s an idiot in office. They want a revolution.
if they succeed, which I doubt, they will find out relatively quickly how miserable things Are under a socialist state
Businesses in that occupied zone report people coming by to demand “donations” for “the cause.” One guy was on social media trying to figure out how to get $500 because “I don’t want trouble.”
I think this was the reaction Trump wanted.
To the people of Seattle: this is your adult leadership in charge.
Um, okay then.
Now can we have it in English?
Good - they have ownership of this. NOT Trump’s fault! (although they’ll try to blame him anyway)
Sheeeeyit. Jenny would poop her boxers if her house was surrounded by rabid mobs out for blood.
Are there ANY real patriot citizens left in Seattle?? Where are they? Hiding from their own ELECTED politicians? For fear of being arrested and sent to jail?
Who is in charge? Who is enforcing the law? What law? Huh?
Yep - elections have consequences. I'd almost like to see this spread where the radicals tear up the Microsoft and Amazon campuses and we'll see how quickly they change their tunes.
“Earlier this week, Seattle police left the area and demonstrators took over, cordoning off several blocks they declared the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, now the site of peaceful protests. “
Earlier this week, the garrison at Fort Sumter surrendered, and it is now the site of peaceful protests.
Earlier this week, Dingos ate me baby, but now they are peacefully protesting.
Earlier this week, the National Socialists locked several generals and state officials in the basement of a beer hall in Bavaria, and now they are peacefully protesting.
Yeah..for you and your Antifa pals.
As far as a fight on Twitter or anywhere else goes, I'll back President Trump over those bozos in Seattle any day. The mayor of Seattle doesn't really have any cards to play with.
Maybe what they need in Seattle is
A whiff of grape
What an idiot. If I was trapped there my merchandise would disappear and so would I,
Or make a donation by credit card, print out the receipt to post, then call the cc company and report the card as lost and freeze it.
In the 80’s it seemed that every whack job liberal from CA was moving there. .... They infected and infested it. There’s little hope left now. They need a giant orkin man to cleanse the place
The governor has now told the US President to "butt out". I'm sure that is all very "woke" and chit but the president has business here.
The actions of the state and local officials in WA are violating all sorts of rights and protections of the citizens, and with their telling Trump to "go back to his bunker", they are toying with open rebellion.
As was the case during CWI, it's not beyond possible that the WA contingent could lose their place in congress until they have been properly reconstructed.
I'm sure that would run beyond November.
The Democrat/Socialists might want to consider those 12 EVs.
"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."
-- US Constitution, Article IV, Section 4.
And Starbucks ...I think it’s closer
