On Wednesday, President Donald Trump mocked 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for calling violent left-wing Antifa groups “an idea” during the first presidential debate Tuesday night.
“Joe Biden says Antifa is just an idea,” Trump said. “Well, ideas don’t assault cops and they don’t burn down buildings. Antifa is a domestic terrorist organization.”

Sorry Joe, Antifa Is Not Just An ‘Idea’
The President made his comments Wednesday night during a campaign rally in Duluth, Minnesota, after Tuesday’s debate.
Trump said that he had received endorsements from law enforcement organizations nationwide, and Biden did not receive any.
The President also accused the media of inspiring and even fueling the riots all summer long.
“They think rioting is just ok, just do whatever you want,” Trump said. “You can do whatever you want, you don’t have to wear masks, you just riot, 25,000 people standing on each other’s face.”

Trump also mocked the media for being upset about his debate performance, but excusing the riots.
“Arson is ok, but challenging Sleepy Joe is totally off-limits,” Trump said sarcastically.

Antifa Threatens The country And Has Ruined Lives
Antifa, which stands for “anti-fascist” is a far-left group sentiment and group that seeks to undermine America in a myriad of ways.
Many who claim the label are young, often white, self-described socialists who claim to speak for minorities, but whose behavior seems more like faux-revolutionary cosplay than any serious political statement.
Some minority leaders have openly rejected these leftist, young radicals.

Not to mention their penchant for violence has harmed so many Americans across the country, including minority small businesses they have destroyed through violence.
Joe Biden thinks Antifa is “just an idea.”
Tell that to its many victims who are still trying to put their businesses and lives together again.
