President Donald Trump has said that he is considering designating Antifa as a terrorist organization.
& # 39; Thinking about explaining ANTIFA, the nefarious Radical Left Wack Jobs that go around (non-fighters only) knocking people over with baseball bats, a large Organization of Terror (along with MS-13 and others), & # 39; Trump wrote in a tweet on Saturday.
& # 39; Would it make it easier for the police to do their job! & # 39; the president went on.
Antifa is not a formal organization, but rather a loose collection of people who are best known for wearing masks and attacking people who call them & # 39; fascists & # 39; in street fighting.

Members of an Antifa group marched in Washington DC earlier this month, where they met opposing people attending a & # 39; Demand Free Speech & # 39; meeting
Members of the far left group have collided with real neo-Nazis, as well as with conservative groups that denounce racism.
Earlier this month, Antifa was tied to a violent armed attack on a government facility.
& # 39; I am antifa & # 39; Willem Van Spronsen wrote in a manifesto before bombing the Tacoma Northwest Detention Center on 13 July.
Spronsen, a Dutch resident, was killed when four officers opened fire after he started throwing fire bombs outside the facility, which is used to detain migrants awaiting deportation procedures.
He was also armed with an AR-15-style rifle.

Ngo was admitted to hospital with a brain haemorrhage after the attack.
The writer later tweeted that he was bleeding and robbed of his camera equipment.
He said: & # 39; Attacked by antifa. Bleed. They stole my camera equipment. No police until after. waiting for ambulance. If you have instructions for an attack, help. & # 39;
Add: & # 39; On the way to the hospital. Was hit face and head several times in the center in the middle of the street with fists and weapons. Suspects in general. & # 39;
