House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff joined Democrat governors and mayors to blame President Donald Trump for the ongoing violence from far-left protesters across the country.

Rep. Schiff (D-CA) accused the president of “willfully fanning the flames” of violence.

His comments come less than 24 hours after one person was shot and killed in Portland following an altercation between Trump supporters and Black Lives Matter protesters.

Trump supporter, Jay Bishop, was gunned down by Antifa over the weekend.

Bishop was tragically pictured lying on the ground wearing a Patriot Prayer cap, and a Blue Lives Matter patch on his pants.

'The president is only motivated by one thing: what is in it for him,' Schiff said

Schiff said on CNN’s “State of the Union:"

“The president is willfully fanning the flames of this fire."

“They believe this is helpful to him.”'

Schiff added:

“The president is only motivated by one thing: what is in it for him.

"He sees this violence and his ability to agitate more of it as useful to this campaign."

"What it does to the country, the loss of life, he doesn’t care," he said.

Schiff, who led the failed impeachment trial against Trump earlier this year, has continually attacked the President since he took office.

Portland has been the center of nightly protests since the death of George Floyd, who died in the custody of Minneapolis police officers.

Since then, far-left rioters have caused untold damage to business and property and have killed police officers and those supporting President Trump.

Trump has criticized the protesters and supported the caravan, tweeting on Sunday morning “GREAT PATRIOTS” alongside a video of the caravan.

“That is the sad and tragic truth about this and also of Trump’s presidency more generally,” Schiff said, adding that the president “believes the violence helps him.”

Trump shared Kremer’s tweet and his wish that Jay may rest in peace.
