President Donald Trump just made it official. He has a message for rioters, looters, and anyone spreading destruction through our nation’s communities. The radical left isn’t going to like this one bit.
“The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” tweeted Trump following the outbreak of violence after George Floyd’s horrifying death.
