• He congratulated the National Guard for assisting with riots in Minneapolis last night. Although he said that “ANTIFA led anarchists” were responsible, there is little evidence so far that specific groups are playing a role in the protests.
  • He called on additional cities to use the National Guard against protestors, and tied the cities’ Democratic leadership to Joe Biden, saying that the “World is watching and laughing at you and Sleepy Joe.” Biden is not currently holding an elected office.
  • He said that he is “designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization." Antifa, which is short for anti-fascist, is not an organization but a loosely defined movement against the far right. Beside that, Trump has no power to designate domestic terror organizations, only foreign ones.
  • He baselessly accused the media of promoting anarchy, saying “they” (unclear exactly who) are “truly bad people with a sick agenda.”
