Washington state Governor Jay Inslee (D), who earlier Wednesday said he did not know that parts of Seattle were occupied by armed anarchists, told President Trump late Wednesday night to “stay out of Washington state’s business” after Trump warned him to act save his city.

Video from Seattle police press conference Wednesday shows the city government is trying to negotiate with the anarchists while citizens across the city cannot get help from the police.
Inslee was responding to Trump’s statement posted earlier Wednesday night that had a typo for the word stop:
