US President Donald Trump has warned to “take back” a police-free district where protesters have been protesting in Seattle.

Protests continued, police abandoned an area in the city on Monday. Donald Trump said that “Domestic Terrorists” had overtaken the area. Washington state leaders said to him not to interfere in their matters.
protesters have been protesting peacefully since police withdrew the area.

According to the international news agency, It has been called Chaz, an abbreviation of Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. Several people have been gathering to protest, hear speeches, and take part in the events.

President Trump has outlined proposals for reforming police such as more funding for training and national guidelines on the use of force.

In several tweets, he criticized the liberal Democratic leaders in the north-western US state of Washington and in Seattle.

“Take back your city NOW,” Mr. Trump wrote on Thursday. “If you don’t do it, I will.”

He said in another tweet, “Domestic Terrorists have taken over Seattle”, saying Washington Governor Jay Inslee was “looking ‘the fool'”.

Mr. Inlsee tweeted back: “A man who is totally incapable of governing should stay out of Washington state’s business.”

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan said in favor of the protests, “Make us all safe. Go back to your bunker.”

“The threat to invade Seattle, to divide and incite violence in our city, is not only unwelcome, it would be illegal,” she added.
