Trump targeted Antifa
President Trump said on his Twitter handle that “the ‘chaotic elements led by Antifa’ and the ‘chaotic elements of the radical left are responsible for this violence.”

What is an Antifa terrorist organization?
Antifa is an opposition group of right-wing politics. People from Antifa have been coming online and on the streets against fascist ideology.
In America, the Antifa movement is used for the leftist and anti-fascist movements. These people are against neo-Nazi, neo-fascism, white supremacy and apartheid and stand against the government.
People associated with this movement usually hold peaceful demonstrations, hold rallies. However, cases of violent clashes were also seen at several places in the fresh movement.
Those associated with Antifa believe that their group came into existence in the 1920s and 1930s with the Movement against European fascist forces.
Speaking to our sources, Mark Bray, author of “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook”, said that the modern American Antifa movement had its origins in the 1980s. And it started with a group called Anti-Racist Action.
Members of this group opposed neo-Nazism in some places in America. But by the early 2000s, this movement was almost over.
In recent times, since the rise of Donald Trump to become President and the rise of conservatives, this movement is raising its head once again.
People associated with this group say that it includes people inspired by many types of political ideology.
Still, in the case of opposing fascism, these groups are united and have an anti-government ideology. And he wants to create a movement that “strengthens us against the policies of President Donald Trump.”
Antifa people wear black clothes
From the anarchists in West Germany to the Cold War period, all those who believe in Antifa’s ideology wear black clothes. Many times these people cover their faces with masks or wear helmets so that the police or opponents do not recognize them. In a way, it is also a dreaded method known as “black block”.
In this way, they can live together as a group of strangers. However, many other groups have also emerged from the Antifa group. In Oregon, there is a group called “Snack Block” which arranges for people to eat food for the people who are protesting.
One member of the group says, “These are not just about opposing the federal government, but it is also to oppose the steps which can lead the country towards fascism.
And such steps also took the authority at the local level. Or a local right-wing movement. “
