PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — President Donald Trump and the mayor of Portland, Oregon, engaged in a real-time argument Sunday as the president posted a flurry of critical tweets about Ted Wheeler as the mayor was holding a press conference about the fatal shooting of a right-wing supporter in his city the night before. The testy exchange followed a volatile 24 hours in Oregon's largest city. The fatal shooting happened after a pro-Trump caravan of 600 cars drove through downtown, leading to skirmishes with counterprotesters. Portland has seen nearly 100 nights of protests following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
