Trump Says US Will Designate Antifa a Terrorist Organization

President Donald Trump is designating Antifa a terrorist organization after a night of violent demonstrations across the country.

“The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” Trump said in a tweet on Sunday afternoon. 

Days after George Floyd died in police custody in Minneapolis, after an officer pinned him to the ground by placing his knee on Floyd’s neck for several minutes, dozens of cities around the country witnessed thousands of people gather to protest police brutality. 

In several cities, the protests turned violent as night fell on Saturday. 

On Sunday, National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien said he believed Antifa, short for “anti-fascist,” was behind the violence during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“This is being driven by Antifa. And they did it in Seattle. They have done it in Portland. They have done it in Berkeley. This is a destructive force of radical — I don’t even know if we want to call them leftists. Whatever they are, they’re — they’re militants who are coming in and burning our cities, and we’re going to get to the bottom of it.”

Watch the video below:

On Saturday, Acting Senate Intelligence Chairman Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said in a tweet that “domestic extremists” were taking advantage of the protests, “Over the last 2 days domestic extremist groups (with a variety of different & opposing ideologies)infiltrated & took advantage of protests to attack police & government buildings.”

“These groups are violent & often armed & their presence at protests will continue to grow,” he warned.

Rubio also said pointed the finger at Antifa, “In city after city we have a rogues gallery of terrorists from Antifa to ‘Boogaloo’ groups encouraging & committing violence.”

He said those groups want to “tear the whole system down even if it requires a new civil war.”

According to the Anti-Defamation League, Antifa is a ” loose collection of groups, networks and individuals who believe in active, aggressive opposition to far right-wing movements.”

Rubio also warned that adversaries of the U.S. were using social media to promote violence.

  1. China would just round up a few hundred and shoot them in back of head. If that didn’t do it shoot a hundred more. The savages would crawl back to the projects with the stolen loot in no time. They are all cowards at heart. First impulse is always to run.

  2. “Over the last 2 days domestic extremist groups (with a variety of different & opposing ideologies)infiltrated & took advantage of protests to attack police & government buildings.” Nothing new here!! These groups, who support Liberal/Democrat goals, have been committing these attacks for over 5 years. They are arrested and released. In the latest waves of violence by these leftists, after being arrested, Biden’s campaign has sent money to bail them out so they can commit more violence. Go ahead Stooges, deny it.

  3. Hey John,
    Breaking news!!!! You’re an idiot and President Trump will win another term. Maybe it’s time for you and your Antifa buddies to look for another country to terrorize. Maybe
    Move to Somalia

  4. Always An Absolute Ass hole trumpuke is unaware that the Department of Homeland Security has already designated Antifa groups as Domestic Terrorists. Along with Caucasian Trash Inferiority groups like the ” We have absolutely nothing to be proud of ” Boys, Oathbreakers, the KKK and others which have advertised their infiltrating the protests to specifically create havoc, incite violence, loot, and burn.

    Of course the evil, inferior to everyone, Caucasian trash, right wing, racist scumbag trumpuke is very deliberately saying NOTHING about these right wing terrorists destroying African American neighborhoods or the reason why the protests are taking place.

    The pussy traitor IS very deliberately pouring gasoline on the violence however.

    As usual.

    1. Listen you lying little pissant, it is oathkeepers and they are non-violent, the kkk is your baby and has been since you and your party brought it into being just after the Civil War. It is you fascist, communist, violence lovers of antifa and blm who are doing the damage with the riots. It is your kind that are pushing us toward another 1776 and war. Admit it, you hate everything about America and want communism/facism to be the governing body. You and your ilk are the ones throwing gas on the fire and it is going to come back to you and burn your ass. That is a pretty big job since you are all ass……..JACKASS!!!!! No, antifa has not yet been put on the terrorist list but soon will be. BLM should be there also along with your many organizations that uphold communism/fascism and violence.

        1. Is being a moronic cheerleader for stupidity genetic or the result of decades of dedicated work Cheri ?

      1. Confused Bob The Projectionist still hasn’t figured out that one can’t be BOTH a fascist AND a communist at the same time yet. That is not how this works, Confused Bob The Projectionist, but you just can’t learn anything new.

        Also, you do realize that things can change throughout history, right Confused Bob The Projectionist? Do you agree? While the KKK may have started out with the equivalent of today’s Democrats, that isn’t where things stand today. You just can’t conveniently set that kind of history aside just because it is a bit sensitive to you, then project the KKK onto today’s Democrats. That’s not how it works, in the real world.

    2. John you sound like antifa. You are very disturbed. I bet you are a democrat.

      1. How much will you bet Willie ?

        I DO NOT care what your opinion of me is.

      2. Do you know what ANTIFA really is Willie? It sure doesn’t sound like it. That isn’t all that surprizing, either, really.

    3. The KKK? Perhaps you are unaware that the KKK was formed by the Democrats, that the KKK was involved with the Democrat party, participating in the DNC in 1924 (Democrats have tried to rewrite history to exclude this, failed). Perhaps you also don’t know that a prominent Senator named Byrd was a KKK member advancing from Kleegle to Exalted Cyclops until he resigned when it became a problem for his political career. He was the Hillarrhoid’s mentor. If the KKK is causing problems in black neighborhoods, it’s so Democrats will have something to use for elections, falsely claiming they it’s “Trump’s fault”. Even the Liberals media, including CNN, is identifying Antifa as the culprit in the recent violence. Everyone knows that Antifa is left wing and against Trump. Those are your people, Johnnie.

      1. Just to update you a bit on current affairs, Chuck, in 1963 Lyndon Johnson became President and started getting civil rights legislation passed, and the Dixiecrats (segregationist Democratic party people from the South) started getting disgusted. Nixon in 68 and 72 worked his “southern strategy”, recognizing that southerners would switch parties if Republicans could just complain about food stamps, forced busing, and the loss of states’ rights, which was just code for “blacks have been getting too many privileges and whites have been losing theirs.” Switch they did. The South swung from being a one-party Democrat stronghold to one-party Republican; the Republicans owned the South, and the South increasingly owned the Republican party. Race haters now vote for the party of Lincoln, and that includes the KKK and would-be Nazis.

        1. And yet it’s been “reported” that in many a private meeting Johnson openly referred to blacks as n*gg*s who needed to be “bought off” with various give always. So much for the “Great Society”.

          1. While his personal views may be abhorrent, he didn’t let them stop progress. He recognized what needed to be done for the betterment of his divided nation. Don’t conflate those two very different things.

            King Donald The Loser is Johnson’s opposite. He obviously wants to inflame and further divide our nation.

          2. Trump knows that at the core of his base is the loose bundle of Nazis, Confederates, and racists who want to rebuild the whites-only America of the 1930s. That’s probably his appeal to you. Trump himself believes in nothing except the glorification of Trump, which is why he went for the most dignified and important job in this country, why he didn’t mind cuddling Nazi types to get him there, and why he’s turning the job into the shit stained image of his own foul little soul.

      2. “The KKK? Perhaps you are unaware that the KKK was formed by the Democrats” Chuck

        That is confusing.

        Why are you trying to pass this off as something that means something or is relevant TODAY? Everybody knows that the KKK is a conservative group. They certainly aren’t bleeding-heart liberals, now are they? Ha ha ha! Get a life, Chuck.
