President Donald Trump mocked 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Wednesday for calling violent left-wing Antifa groups “an idea” during the first presidential debate.
“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.”
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.
Joe Biden thinks Antifa is "just an idea."
Tell that to the many victims who are still trying to put their businesses and lives together after the damage these extremists have caused.
