President Trump on Tuesday threatened the federal funding for Seattle, Portland, New York City, and Washington as part of an effort to target “anarchist jurisdictions” that he claims have “permitted violence and the destruction of property” during recent protests.

In a memo to the attorney general and the White House budget director, the president called for a review of all federal funds provided to Seattle, Portland, New York City and Washington, D.C., saying, “it is imperative that the federal government review the use of federal funds by jurisdictions that permit anarchy, violence, and destruction in America’s cities.”
