DURKAN: “So I know it will shock you that the president is perhaps not getting an accurate or truthful picture. We’ve got four blocks in Seattle that you just saw pictures of that is more like a block party atmosphere. It is not an armed take over. It’s not a military hunt. We will make sure that we can restore this. We have block parties and the like in this part of Seattle all the time. It’s known for that. So I think the president, number one, there is no threat right now to the public. We’re looking, taking that very seriously and meeting with businesses and residents. What the president threatened is illegal and un-constitutional, and the fact he can think he can just tweet that and not have ramifications is just wrong.”
