Trump: Americans should walk city streets free from violence and fear
President Donald Trump is to send "a surge" of federal security forces to US cities in a crackdown on crime. Chicago and two other Democratic-run cities are being targeted in the Republican president's move, amid a spike in violence. But federal deployments in Portland, Oregon, have proved controversial. Local officials say they have raised tensions amid ongoing protests. Law and order have become a key plank of Mr Trump's re-election bid in November. Since the death on 25 May of an unarmed black man, George Floyd, in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota, there have been protests - sometimes descending into civil disorder - in scores of US cities.
