(Worthy News) - More than a dozen people were arrested during Saturday’s demonstrations where far-right groups planned protests against far-left extremist groups.
Members from the far-right group, Proud Boys planned the event as a demonstration against domestic terrorism. Their particular focus was on the far-left extremist group Antifa (Anti-fascist).
Before events in Portland had gotten underway, President Trump tweeted, "major consideration was being given to designating Antifa an organization of terror. Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job,” he added. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an “ORGANIZATION OF TERROR.” Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!
