Trump calls for authorities in Seattle to take action after ‘autonomous zone’ set up by protesters

The US President called on the Governor of Washington Jay Inslee and Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan to “take back your city,” saying they are being “taunted and played” by Black Lives Matter protesters. Demonstrators in the city have set up an area around the abandoned East Precinct called the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone,” and footage from the area shows peaceful protesters watching films and listening to live music. There have been over a week of demonstrations in the city, including some clashes between protesters and police.
