image for Trump claims in debate ‘Portland Sheriff’ gave him endorsement; Reese quickly responds: I ‘will never support him’

President Donald Trump during Tuesday night’s debate said he secured the endorsement of the “Portland sheriff” -- presumably a reference to Multnomah County Sheriff Mike Reese.

“In tonight’s presidential debate the President said the ‘Portland Sheriff’ supports him," Reese said on Twitter.

"As the Multnomah County Sheriff I have never supported Donald Trump and will never support him.”.

Trump also said if local and state leaders cooperated as he wants, he could end protests in Portland in 30 minutes.

Moderator Chris Wallace asked Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate for president, if he had reached out to try to stop the violence in Portland.

Another issue familiar to Portlanders -- the far-right group the Proud Boys -- was addressed during the debate when Wallace asked Trump to condemn white supremacy.

Trump deflected the question, but when Wallace pressed, Trump asked for a name of a group. »
