'He has not protected or supported Portlanders,' the letter read calling for Wheeler's resignation

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Police Chief Chuck Lovell are facing calls to resign after violent clashes between Black Lives Matter and supporters of President Donald Trump, resulting in a deadly shooting in the city.

Progressive groups called for Wheeler’s resignation in a joint letter arguing the Mayor had “not protected or supported” the city’s residents.

“What took place last night was inevitable given Mayor Wheeler’s repeated failure,” the letter said, the Oregonian reported.

“He has not protected or supported Portlanders. We do not have confidence in his ability to course-correct. He must resign.”

The executive director of the Oregon Justice Resource Center, Bobbin Singh, called for local leaders to resign.

“These conditions have been created because there’s been a lack of leadership, a lack of vision,” Singh said.

The victim of Saturday’s shooting was identified as Aaron “Jay” Danielson of Portland, who was was gunned down by Antifa terrorists.

Portland Police Bureau is investigating 48-year-old Michael Forest Reinoehl for his alleged involvement in the fatal shooting.

Trump called Wheeler a “fool” and blamed him for allowing violence to take over Portland.

Wheeler responded to Trump's remarks during a news conference:

“That’s classic Trump. Mr. President, how can you think that a comment like that, if you’re watching this, is in any way helpful?" Wheeler said.

"It’s an aggressive stance; it is not collaborative. I certainly reached out, I believe in a collaborative manner, by saying earlier that you need to do your part and I need to do my part, and then we both need to be held accountable.”

Last week, far-left activists also stormed the building where Wheeler lives just a day after he refused the President's help.
