The Trump administration is planning to withdraw some federal security forces from Portland, Oregon, after weeks of clashes with protesters. US Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said the pullout was conditional on local police protecting federal buildings, the focal point of unrest. Oregon Governor Kate Brown said federal agents would start leaving the state's biggest city from Thursday. Portland has been rocked by 62 consecutive days of demonstrations. In his statement, the US homeland security secretary set no timeline for a pullout.
