Trump has criticized the authorities of the state of Washington for the unrest in Seattle

The US President Donald trump said that the Federal government can "lot to do" to restore order in Seattle, where there were riots.

"If they don't do their job, this job we do... We do a lot of things to do," trump said to reporters, referring to the Governor of Washington and mayor of Seattle.

He called the mayor of Seattle Jenny Durkan "stubborn" for refusing to appeal to the national guard for help.

The riots started in the city in the Wake of mass protests in the United States because of the death of an African-American to George Floyd at the hands of police in Minneapolis on may 25.

Trump said that the city of Seattle, state of Washington took over the "domestic terrorists", and called on local authorities to deal with unrest. The President last week criticized the Governor of Washington state Jay and Margie reiger mayor Jenny Durkan (both Democrats), which, in his opinion, do not struggle with the disorder. In response Durcan advised Trump to "get back to the bunker".
