The United States President Trump has on Wednesday called on Democratic presumptive presidential candidate Joe Biden to denounce radical far-left group Antifa after pranksters directed “Antifa.com” to Joe Biden’s campaign page.
Trump was asked about the snafu, which seemed timed to Joe Biden’s unveiling of his VP Kamala Harris in Delaware, and whether his opponents needed to denounce Antifa as a domestic terror organization.
“They should. I think they’re afraid to. In my book, it’s virtually part of their campaign, Antifa.”
“The Democrats act like, ‘Gee, I don’t know exactly what that is.’ Take a look at Portland, take a look at any place you want to take a look at — they’re everywhere,” Trump said.
The radical so-called “anti-fascist” organization has been connected to civil rights protests across the country, with the Justice Department finding evidence that Antifa made an organized effort to exacerbate the violence.
Attorney General William Barr said he had sound evidence that the group hijacked demonstrations over the death of African American George Floyd at the hands of white police in May to promote their personal agenda.
Although, high ranked Democrats like Rep. Jerry Nadler (D. NY) has insisted that evidence of Antifa-led violence in Portland was “a myth.”
The U.S. leader President Donald Trump has moved to designate Antifa as a terrorist organization.
