Last night was the 83rd consecutive night that rioters have taken to the streets of downtown Portland, and they successfully set fire to a Portland government building. There were only 200 rioters. READ: Demonstrators gather for 83rd night of protests; riot declared as Multnomah Building damaged

According to a report in the New York Post, businesses in downtown Portland are now leaving the city.

“Businesses are leaving,” Andrew Hoan, president and CEO of the Portland Business Alliance (PBA), told KATU.

“The financial consequences to the downtown corridor are a running calculation that is almost impossible to wrap your mind around,” he said — with one company already saying the riots have cost $20 million in damage and lost business.

“You have blocks and blocks of plywood. You have graffiti. You have an accumulation of damages that are unrepaired, an ongoing perception that coming downtown is not a safe place,” Hoan said.

You can’t really blame them for abandoning the city, because the city’s political leaders have abandoned them.
