President Donald Trump blasted Oregon Gov. Kate Brown and accused her of not doing her job in a Thursday tweet.

“Kate Brown, Governor of Oregon, isn’t doing her job,” Trump wrote. “She must clear out, and in some cases arrest, the Anarchists & Agitators in Portland. If she can’t do it, the Federal Government will do it for her. We will not be leaving until there is safety!”

Trump’s tweet comes a day after Brown announced that federal agents would be leaving Portland on Thursday in a “phased withdrawal.”

Brown announced she negotiated the deal with acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf. The agreement includes a “robust presence” of Oregon State Police in downtown Portland, according to a statement released by Wolf. 

Hours later, Wolf said the Department of Homeland Security would remain in Portland until the U.S. courthouse there is “safe and secure." 

"We will continue to keep law enforcement officers in the area to make sure that that courthouse is secure at the end of the day," Wolf said on Fox News’ “Bill Hemmer Reports.

"Over time, if the Oregon State Police and the plan that has been put in place is successful, and we can responsibly draw down law enforcement assets there, then we will," Wolf said. 

Portland has experienced violent protests since the death of George Floyd, a Black man, who was killed by a white police officer on Memorial Day.

The ongoing demonstrations, which have become destructive and dangerous, led Trump to deploy federal agents to help control the situation.
