Fed up with riots taking place around the country that have nothing to do with the death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd, President Donald Trump on Sunday pledged to designate Antifa a domestic terrorist group.
The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization.

The response comes as Trump has blamed the growing number of destructive, deadly riots on the loose-knit group which has no formal leadership but only cells throughout the country.
While others — mostly Democrats — have sought to blame Right-wing white supremacist groups for the violence, the president made it clear who he thinks is behind them.
It's ANTIFA and the Radical Left. Don't lay the blame on others!

As Breitbart News reported:
Minnesota Democrat Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan accused 'white supremacists' on Saturday of instigating and participating in the widespread riots and looting in her state over the police killing of state resident George Floyd.
Flanagan indicated that gangs of white supremacists are taking advantage of the anarchy unfolding in the Twin Cities to sow more chaos.
People should be able to come together … and mourn and grieve and demand change and justice in policing and every other racist system that we have that has been part of this state,' Flanagan, the first Native American lieutenant governor in Minnesota, declared.
'But in this moment, we cannot because there are detractors,' she continued. 'There are white supremacists. There are anarchists. There are people who are burning down the institutions that are core to our identity and who we are.'
In fact, according to one security expert, the bulk of the damage being done in Minneapolis is coming from Left-wing rioters, as USA Today reports:
'The real hard-core guys, this is their job: They're involved in this struggle,” said Adam Leggat, a former British Army counterterrorism officer who now works as a security consultant specializing in crowd management for the Densus Group. “They need protests on the street to give them cover to move in.'
Leggat…said intelligence reports from his colleagues indicate most of the hard-core protesters in Minneapolis are far-left or anarchists, and that far-right groups have not yet made a significant appearance.
Even the Obama administration considered Antifa domestic terrorists.
This destination is way overdue but better late than never. Now the Justice Department has a whole new set of legal tools, as in far stricter laws, to use in order to prosecute these anarchists and wannabe revolutionaries.
