Antifa will be classified as a terrorist organization. President Trump made the announcement on Twitter about the militant left-wing group blamed for violent protests following the death of George Floyd.
The news comes just hours after National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien told CNN's “State of the Union” peaceful protests against the death of George Floyd can't be drowned out by Antifa. O'Brien blames Antifa for the violent protests happening around the nation, calling them "militant radicals."
Floyd is the unarmed black man who died in Minneapolis last week after he was pinned to the ground by a white police officer. That man, now-former police officer Derek Chauvin, is now being held on murder and manslaughter charges.
