Antifa rioters, among others, in Portland toppled statues Sunday night – including those of former presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln – in what was described on social media as a ‘Day of Rage’ to protest against the Columbus Day holiday.

These rioters and looters destroyed the “entrance to the Oregon Historical Society in Portland’s South Park Blocks late Sunday before moving into other areas of downtown, smashing storefronts and engaging in other acts of destruction,” according to news reports out of Oregon.

Police could not stop the rioting and according to news reports law enforcement officials did not directly intervene until more than an hour after the first statue fell.

President Donald Trump announced last month that his administration plans to designate both the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and Antifa as terrorist organizations, and call for making lynching a federal hate crime. Trump also announced an investment of $500 million for Black Americans to increase access to the amount of capital in Black communities.

On Monday morning President Trump tweeted in response to Sunday night’s destruction that the “FBI and Law Enforcement must focus their energy on Antifa and the Radical left, those who have spent the summer trying to burn down poorly run Democrat Cities throughout the USA!”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Florida state health officials, are investigating what is believed to be a case of monkeypox. A statement from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County stated the “case is related to international travel, and the person remains isolated.”

Late Friday a New York City resident also tested positive for the virus that causes monkeypox, and is the state’s first confirmed case. On Sunday, President Joe Biden made his first public statements about the outbreaks, saying the recent spread of monkeypox in at least 12 countries are “something that everybody should be concerned about.”

Axios reports a person was confirmed positive with the virus in Massachusetts, New York and “roughly a half dozen other cases” are “being monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
