He said earlier on Twitter, \u201cANTIFA and the radical left-wing don't blame others!\u201d\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/realDonaldTrump\/status\/1267129644228247552\r\n\r\nTrump's announcement comes amid violent protests across the country, rejecting police brutality after the death of a black man who appeared in a video clip trying to breathe while a white policeman kneeling on his neck in <a href="https:\/\/see.news\/minneapolis-riot-2nd-night-of-protests-violence-looting\/">Minneapolis<\/a>.\r\n<blockquote class="pullquote align-center">ANTIFA is an anti-fascist protest movement that gained\u00a0new prominence in the United States after the white supremacist Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, VA, in August 2017.<\/blockquote>\r\n<img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-129616" src="https:\/\/see.news\/wp-content\/uploads\/2020\/05\/777XSI3MDZFPXDRV57YGJCDF2Q.jpg" alt="Trump: U.S. to Designate ANTIFA As Terrorist Organization" width="800" height="533" \/>"ANTIFA" is a secret movement, and it has no known central administration, nor registered members. Its members usually organize their movements spontaneously.\r\n<h2><span style="color: #ff0000;">Trump Accuses ANTIFA of Chaos<\/span><\/h2>\r\nThe movement aims to combat racism, capitalism and discrimination. Its style tends to be violent during protests. Their ideology is rooted in the assumption that the Nazi party would never have been able to come to power in Germany if people had more aggressively fought them in the streets in the 1920s and 30s, according to <a href="https:\/\/www.adl.org\/resources\/backgrounders\/who-are-antifa">the ADL organization.<\/a>\r\n\r\n<img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-129613" src="https:\/\/see.news\/wp-content\/uploads\/2020\/05\/c7960037-79d4-4eae-8f6b-294e67e0ba04_16x9_600x338.jpg" alt="Trump: U.S. to Designate ANTIFA As Terrorist Organization" width="600" height="337" \/>Although the movement reappeared with the arrival of President Trump to the White House, its roots are long history, and political literature dates back to the period after the First World War.\r\n\r\nThe ANTIFA movement began in the 1960s in Europe, and had reached the U.S. by the end of the 1970s. It first appeared in Italy to fight fascism there in its beginnings in the year 1919, which was accompanied by the escalation of repression of socialist and workers' associations in the country at the time.\r\n\r\nThe movement's key members often appear masked, active in many U.S. states, and say they seek to protect their societies from the extreme right and Neo-Nazis.
