Oregon Governor Kate Brown (D) deployed forces with the state’s National Guard during Wednesday night’s riot — one day after the presidential election. The Guardsman arrived on Portland streets as about 200 began to vandalize businesses in the downtown area.

As violence broke out once again in Portland, Governor Brown deployed National Guard and State Police to help restore peace. The deployment comes one day after the presidential election and follows months of destruction caused from nightly protests and riots.

Wednesday night, journalists spotted members of the Oregon National Guard intermingled with Portland Police Bureau officers, Multnomah County Sheriff’s deputies, and State Police officers.

Journalist Andy Ngo tweeted video of a convoy of National Guardsman arriving in the city after months of violent protests and rioting. ” In the past six months of rioting, the governor refused to bring in the National Guard,” Ngo reported.

Protesters continued their violence Wednesday night — vandalizing businesses, smashing windows, and desecrating a Catholic church.
