Trump Says He Will Designate Antifa As A Terrorist Organization

8

President Trump said a short while ago the government will designate Antifa — the far-left extremist group his administration says is carrying out violence during the nationwide George Floyd protests — as a “terrorist” organization.

“The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” the president said on Twitter.

The message was part of a series of tweets about the demonstrations that have been roiling cities across the country following the death of Floyd at the hands of police in Minneapolis last Monday.

“Congratulations to our National Guard for the great job they did immediately upon arriving in Minneapolis, Minnesota, last night. The ANTIFA led anarchists, among others, were shut down quickly. Should have been done by Mayor on first night and there would have been no trouble!” Trump also tweeted.

“Other Democrat run Cities and States should look at the total shutdown of Radical Left Anarchists in Minneapolis last night. The National Guard did a great job, and should be used in other States before it is too late!,” he said.

The president’s tweets came just hours after national security adviser Robert O’Brien blamed Antifa for the carnage during the Floyd protests. Read more.

  1. Someone tell the president that the authority to designate terrorist organizations under the material support statue is limited to FOREIGN groups….

    It is the reason why white supremacist groups are not classified as terrorists groups.

    • ANTIFA is an acronym for “Anti-American fascists” and/or “Anti-American Foreign Agents”. They’re a combination of domestic and foreign terrorists. The President surely has the authority to designate them as terrorists.

  2. These riots are out of hand BLM should also be designated as a terrorist organization enough is enough they want justice but they behave like thugs where is the logic. BLM is a bunch of bored people who need an excuse to steal and destroy other people’s property shame on these people a disgrace to society

  3. don’t be surprised if DeBlasio’s son is one of the ring leaders. That is why the mayor didn’t want curfew. His kids need new sneakers for the summer like their friends.
