Although the final results of the election remain unclear, protests broke out in cities across the U.S., with people urging that every ballot be counted in the race between Incumbent President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

The Oregon National Guard was called into Portland after protests turned violent on Wednesday night, police said.

Authorities said at least 11 people were arrested after two groups of protesters converged in downtown Portland, with some protesters throwing objects — including a Molotov cocktail and glass bottles — at law enforcement officials.

A riot was subsequently declared.

The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office said the Oregon National Guard was activated.

“In the interest of public safety, Governor Kate Brown, under the advice of the Unified Command, has activated the use of the Oregon National Guard to assist local law enforcement,” the Multnomah County’s Sherrif’s Office said in a tweet.

In New York City, the NYPD said they had thousands of cops already on the streets Tuesday night and would deploy more over the next few days to cease any potential unrest.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that any peaceful protests would be respected and facilitated but warned that any violence would be stopped immediately.

“We will not allow any violence. I want to be clear once again about this,” he said Tuesday.

In a memo obtained by NBC News, NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea acknowledged that protests may be ongoing for weeks.

“The Nov. 3 election will be one of the most highly contested presidential elections in the modern era,” the memo wrote.

Several hundred people took to the streets on Wednesday night in Midtown Manhattan while chanting “count every vote.” Organizers called it the “Protect the Results” rally.

The New York Police Department tweeted that anyone caught with a weapon would be arrested.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
