Al-Qaeda, ISIS, IRA...the complete list of terrorist groups in the US
As the riots spread throughout the United States, president Donald Trump promises to ‘stop mob violence cold’ and promises there will be no anarchy in the country.
After another night of rioting in many US cities, president Donald Trump promised to ‘stop mob violence cold’ and promises there will be no anarchy in the country. While some are protesting demanding justice over Floyd’s death, others are taking advantage of the situation by looting stores and rubbing businesses.
The White House has remained in lockdown since Friday as protesters tried to scale walls and Trump is blaming Antifa (Anti-fascists) for sparking violent protests over Floyd’s death across the nation. The president used his social media that he will stop ‘mob violence cold.’
According to Trump the violence and vandalism is being led by Antifa and other radical left wing groups who are terrorizing the innocent, destroying jobs, hurting businesses and burning down buildings. He went as far as labelling the Antifa movement as a domestic terrorist organization.
“These are ‘Organized Groups’ that have nothing to do with George Floyd. Sad!” Trump tweeted Saturday in describing the rioters. “It’s ANTIFA and the Radical Left. Don’t lay the blame on others!” He later claimed in a further post, that The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization.
