Trump says US will designate Antifa 'terrorist organisation'

The US will designate the anti-fascist group Antifa a terrorist organisation, President Donald Trump says.

Trump and several top officials from his administration, including US Attorney General William Barr, have blamed Antifa and groups it describes as “agitators” for taking over the protests in US cities.

“The violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly,” Barr said in a statement on Sunday following the president’s tweet.
