Trump is calling protesters who disagree with him terrorists. That puts him in the company of the world's autocrats

Trump has promised to ratchet up his Portland approach, saying in an interview with Fox News on Thursday that he could send as many as 75,000 federal agents to other US cities, in what he calls "Operation Legend."
He argues that these cities -- all with mayors who are Democrats -- have been overrun by criminals, particularly as anti-race protests continue. He has criticized local leaders and police for failing to take a tough line on crime.
But his critics say Operation Legend is an unabashed re-election pitch by Trump to project himself as the country's law-and-order president ahead of the November vote, one that seeks to paint his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, as anti-police. 
What could easily happen is that these protests transform from an anti-racism movement to a wider anti-government movement, according to Luis Schiumerini, an assistant professor of political science at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana.
