On Saturday morning, President Trump used some of this strongest language yet in calling out the marauding menace of ANTIFA who continue to harass and beat free speech proponents with impunity.
With the Democrats and the entire media working frantically to expand the definition of domestic terrorism to theoretically include all opponents of open borders, unfettered immigration, and support of Trump, the real terrorists are those clad in black who have escalated their tactics to include attacks on federal ICE facilities in recent weeks.
But the media is gaslighting Americans once again and to this day, not one influential Democrat has personally come forward to denounce ANTIFA’s violence and thuggery and don’t expect to hear it from any of them anytime soon.
With another round of mayhem expected to explode in Portland, Oregon this weekend as the black-clad goons will take advantage of the Rose City’s implicit sanctioning of mob violence, the POTUS took to Twitter to send a shot whistling across ANTIFA and Mayor Ted Wheeler’s bow that he will be watching “very closely” and that this time there could be serious consequences.
Trump also referred to the Democratic party’s paramilitary arm as an “ORGANIZATION OF TERROR” which many believe is a thoroughly appropriate description.
Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an “ORGANIZATION OF TERROR.” Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!

President Trump said Saturday that he was watching “very closely” as opposing protest movements were set to meet this weekend in Portland, Ore.
In a tweet, the president wrote that he was still considering declaring the left-leaning movement known as “Antifa” a terrorist group as law enforcement urged businesses in Portland to shut down for the day ahead of possible violence.
“Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an “ORGANIZATION OF TERROR.” Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully, the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!” Trump tweeted.
Trump had previously threatened to designate Antifa groups as a terrorist organization late last month after a conservative journalist for Quillette was beaten by Antifa members during a protest.
