Trump: U.S. to designate Antifa as ‘terrorist organization’

On Sunday, President Trump said the United States will designate Antifa as a “terrorist organization.”  The announcement, which was made on Twitter, came after several nights of violent riots and looting allegedly done in the name of George Floyd.

The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” he tweeted.

Fox News reported:

Trump has alleged that the violence was “being led by Antifa and other radical groups.” Antifa, short for anti-fascists, is an umbrella term for far-left-leaning militant groups that resist neo-Nazis and white supremacists at demonstrations.

Attorney General William Barr has seemed to echo Trump’s assertion, saying the violent incidents in Minneapolis were driven by groups using “Antifa-like tactics.” Barr vowed that federal prosecutors across the country would use federal riots statutes to charge protesters who cross state lines to participate in violent rioting.

Police in many areas responded with tear gas and rubber bullets.

The move came after Twitter, the social media giant that is now censoring Trump while allowing death threats against the president, changed its bio to show solidarity with those now engaged in violence across the nation:

Meanwhile, we learn that members of Joe Bidens campaign staff are now helping those who have been arrested during the riots.

According to Reuters:

Campaign staff for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden are advertising their donations to a group that pays bail fees in Minneapolis after the city’s police jailed people protesting the killing of a black man by a white police officer.

At least 13 Biden campaign staff members posted on Twitter on Friday and Saturday that they made donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which opposes the practice of cash bail, or making people pay to avoid pre-trial imprisonment. The group uses donations to pay bail fees in Minneapolis.

Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement to Reuters that the former vice president opposes the institution of cash bail as a “modern day debtors prison.”

So, can we expect any action to actually be taken?
