The President let the ANTIFA members have it at the White House Social Media Summit by calling them out for what they are- cowards. Trump pointed out that these members don’t go after ‘bikers for Trump’, the police, or the construction workers. Instead, they target lone reporters.
The President went on to say that ANTIFA members liver in their parent’s basements, wear masks, and mocked their ignorance on free speech.
Trump was responding to the recent ANTIFA attack on reporter Andy Ngo. A lone Asian American journalist and an easy target for the ANTIFA mob.
According to Fox News, Ngo told Todd Starnes Monday on “The Todd Starnes Show” he was covering the Portland demonstration Saturday when the protesters turned their attention to him.
“I moved towards the front of the march with my GoPro and my camera, and what I recall is somebody ran hard into behind me and hit me very hard in the back of my head,” he said.
“They were marching, ironically, in front of the Oregon Justice Center — which houses the sheriff’s office and a Portland police precinct — so we were surrounded by all these institutions that represent the rule of law.
“And yet, what happened was complete anarchy and lawlessness.”
The journalist said Portland police did not immediately come to his aid, adding he later watched video of nearly a dozen people pummeling him in the street and dousing him with unknown substances.
The Portland Police Bureau has said it is still investigating various assaults, and are asking the public for more information. Crime Stoppers of Oregon offers cash rewards of up to $2,500 for information that leads to an arrest in any unsolved felony crime and tipsters can remain anonymous.
