President Trump's decision to brand Antifa terrorists is wholly justified. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has claimed that Trump is right to ban Antifa because they are an organization linked to Kurdish militants in Turkey. The Turkish government has stated that they have evidence that terrorists in Northern Syria have trained members of antifa.
The US Attorney General and President Trump have claimed the police and the FBI know that there are organized groups of Antifa protestors being flown around the US to cause trouble at protests.
William Barr has asserted that police chiefs have informed him that Antifa was the main cause of the violence in every city where rioting has taken place. The group is causing widespread violence, which demands a controlled response.
Those who break the law must face the rule of law and held to account.
