(CNSNews.com) – “The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” President Trump tweeted on Sunday.
Echoing the president on Sunday, National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien told ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos that Antifa (far left anti-fascists) are to blame for the eruption of violence in American cities.
It’s the violent Antifa radical militants that are coming out, under cover of night, traveling across state lines, using military-style tactics to burn down our cities. And they’re especially targeting the most venerable parts of our cities, George. The minority section, the African-American sections and Hispanic areas and burning down businesses of people that are trying to get a leg up.
And — and the president’s outraged by that. And we all are. And — and that has to stop. And we’re calling on the FBI to investigate Antifa and — and get to the bottom of these — these violent rioters. And I don’t want them confused with peaceful protesters that have every right to go out to the streets. That’s — that’s what makes America different from any other countries around the world.
