Trump moves to defund 'anarchist' cities

United States President Donald Trump has reportedly signed an executive memo ordering a review of federal funds in several areas of the country that have failed to stop protests from turning violent in the past several months.

"My Administration will not allow Federal tax dollars to fund cities that allow themselves to deteriorate into lawless zones," the head of state wrote in the memo, obtained by The New York Post, that currently pertains to New York City, Washington DC, Seattle and Portland.

Through the order, the president directed federal agencies to detail all aid provided to the cities in question and report to the White House Office of Management and Budget which funds can be redirected, also instructing Attorney General Bill Barr to determine all jurisdictions in the country that have descended into "anarchy."
