Portland protesters counter teargas with leaf blowers in standoff with federal troops

Black Lives Matter protesters used leaf blowers to blow back teargas in clashes with federal troops in Portland, Oregon.

On the 57th day of protests in the city, thousands of demonstrators marched on a federal courthouse where they have clashed with officers throughout the week.

The troops, deployed by Donald Trump against the wishes of Portland's mayor, fired teargas and pepper rounds into the crowd, and some responded by throwing fireworks back.
