Trump condemns killing of pair who tried to stop racist rant

Online funding pages have emerged for the families of the two slain men, the injured man and the girls who survived the attack.

Christian will make his first court appearance in the case Tuesday, and it wasn't clear if he had an attorney. He has been identified as 35-year-old Jeremy Christian, of North Portland. From left are Coco's brother, Desmond Douglas; her father, Christopher Douglas; and her stepmother, Angel Sauls.

Micah Fletcher suffered a neck wound Friday after coming to the defense of two young women who were verbally abused by a man before he allegedly stabbed Fletcher and two other men who died.

Macy said she couldn't see the target or targets of Christian's threats, but it appeared as if the three men placed themselves between Christian and two teenage girls.

Christian is charged with aggravated murder, attempted murder, intimidation in the second degree, and felony possession of a restricted weapon.

"The idea that Portland is so liberal supersedes this dark, hidden secret about racism", said Karen Gibson, a professor of urban studies at Portland State University. Before he was carried away, he had a last message, she said: "Tell everyone on this train I love them".

On Monday, President Trump weighed in, lauding the victims and deploring the act of violence. "I got him to calm down, sit down, relax so he wouldn't bleed out".

"We'll be working with TriMet and the respective agencies of transit police as well as the precincts to get people out and about, because people need to feel safe", Simpson said.

"It's everywhere and the trouble is, it's getting more and more prevalent".

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler said Monday that he hopes the men's actions inspire "changes in the political dialogue in this country".

The June 10 protest is called #MarchAgainstSharia, KATU reported. Police confiscated the bat, and he was then caught on camera clashing with counter-protesters.

In a statement, the group said: "The government can not revoke or deny a permit based on the viewpoint of the demonstrators". He was well enough by Saturday night to post a poem about the attack on Facebook. The Oregonian/OregonLive also had video from the April 29 march showing Christian.

"To say that any of my speakers are racist, that's ridiculous", Gibson said in his video. "I haven't seen the proof".

"Let's do them honour by standing with them and carrying on their legacy of standing up to hate and bigotry and violence".

Christian could face additional charges once prosecutors present the case to a grand jury, police said.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate crimes, has noted a sharp rise in the number of both anti-Muslim groups and bias incidents in the past year.

The attack came as some religious rights groups warn of a rising tide of anti-Islamic sentiment in the United States, blaming President Donald Trump for divisive anti-Muslim rhetoric.

In addition to being a hero, Fletcher is an accomplished poet. The members of the California-based White Aryan Resistance killed him with a baseball bat. One of the women tearfully thanked the men for their sacrifice.

"So, I ask you Mr. President to take action at this time".
