President Donald Trump held nothing back on Saturday. As he took to Twitter and remarked on the latest events in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
“It’s ANTIFA and the Radical Left. Don’t lay the blame on others!” Trump tweeted Saturday, referring to far-left violent groups who often describe themselves as “anti-fascist.”
Trump claimed a “lot of radical left, bad people” were to blame for violence in Minneapolis along with other cities and “they have to be tougher” fighting back against the rioters.
“We can have our military there very quickly,” the president stated. “They’ve got to be tough, they’ve got to be strong, they’ve got to be respected, because these people, these Antifa — it’s a lot of radical left, bad people — and they’ve got to be taught that you can’t do this.”
Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey posted shortly after: “In the last few days, both our city and state law enforcement capacities have been overwhelmed by simple math — an overwhelming ratio of rioters that even our unified effort has been unable to push back.”
He declared, “We are now confronting white supremacists, members of organized crime, out of state instigators, and possibly even foreign actors to destroy and destabilize our city and our region.”
Asked if he was aware of reports that white supremacists had been involved in the looting, Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz told based on his “suspicions and what I’ve seen on this, yes.”
“It gets worse than that. The cartels, who are wondering if there was a break in their drug transmissions, are trying to take advantage of the chaos. That’s why this situation is on a federal level.” added Walz.
Trump later chimed in with: “Crossing State lines to incite violence is a FEDERAL CRIME! Liberal Governors and Mayors must get MUCH tougher or the Federal Government will step in and do what has to be done, and that includes using the unlimited power of our Military and many arrests. Thank you!”
As well as, “80% of the RIOTERS in Minneapolis last night were from OUT OF STATE. They are harming businesses (especially African American small businesses), homes, and the community of good, hardworking Minneapolis residents who want peace, equality, and to provide for their families.”
Can the Democrats and Republicans agree on anything?
