Trump's special treatment on Twitter would end with Biden win

"By Tribune News Service
As U.S. president, Donald Trump receives special treatment from Twitter Inc. when he violates the company’s rules around offensive or misleading content. That exemption will end in January if he loses the presidency."
"Since the polls closed Tuesday night, Twitter has hidden eight separate Trump tweets for violating the company’s rules, most of them for trying to undermine the validity of election results by suggesting vote tallies are fraudulent and that Democrats are trying to “steal” the presidency."

Riot declared, National Guard called to downtown Portland

"PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Two groups of protesters converged in downtown Portland Wednesday evening, with one group going to Waterfront Park and the other blocking the Morrison Bridge and vandalizing small businesses and churches along West Burnside."

" Authorities said they arrested a man accused of throwing a Molotov cocktail at officers. That man, who had not been identified, was wearing a tactical vest and had a loaded rifle with additional magazines, an improved explosive device, a knife and cans of spray paint, Unified Command said.

Law enforcement said they had also seized commercial-grade fireworks and hammers throughout the night.

Unified Command denied rumors of officials using an unmarked van to grab and arrest people, saying arrestees were being transported in marked police vehicles though some agencies were using unmarked vehicles to transport law enforcement personnel"

Authorities said people in this second group damaged businesses and ATMs along Burnside and SW Harvey Milk Street and threw objects, including glass bottles, at officers. The Portland Business Alliance said the vandalism targeted several small businesses, retailers, restaurants and places of worship. KOIN 6 News saw windows smashed at Wildfang — a woman-owned clothing store that sells pro-feminist merchandise. Windows were also shattered at Saint Andre Bessette Church and restaurant Lovely Rita."
