    “When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest,” Attorney General William Barr said in a statement. “We cannot allow federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance. It is my hope that the cities identified by the Department of Justice today will reverse course and become serious about performing the basic function of government and start protecting their own citizens.”

    From the DOJ website under Justice News (highlighting added):

    The U.S. Department of Justice today identified the following three jurisdictions that have permitted violence and destruction of property to persist and have refused to undertake reasonable measures to counteract criminal activities: New York City; Portland, Oregon; and Seattle, Washington. The Department of Justice is continuing to work to identify jurisdictions that meet the criteria set out in the President’s Memorandum and will periodically update the list of selected jurisdictions as required therein.

    The list was published on DOJ’s website today in response to President Trump’s memorandum of September 2, 2020, entitled “Memorandum on Reviewing Funding to State and Local Government Recipients That Are Permitting Anarchy, Violence, and Destruction in American Cities.”​

    Department Of Justice Identifies New York City, Portland And Seattle As Jurisdictions Permitting Violence And Destruction Of Property

    Are there any “Republican” big cities?
    (I mean, do they exist, or do big cities skew Democrat?)

    All I can say is that Indianapolis under then Mayor Richard Lugar, later US Senator, combined the county and municipal governments for money saying purposes and Indianapolis had Republican mayors until two or three years ago. However, whites fled Marion County and now it is impossible for a Republican ever to be elected again in Indianapolis. Indianapolis suffered downtown riots this summer for the first time in memory and three people were murdered downtown. The last person out of Indianapolis should turn out the lights.
