President Donald Trump said he is considering declaring the left-wing activist group Antifa a terrorist organization.
“Consideration is being given to declaring ANTIFA, the gutless Radical Left Wack Jobs who go around hitting (only non-fighters) people over the heads with baseball bats, a major Organization of Terror (along with MS-13 & others),” Trump said Saturday on Twitter. “Would make it easier for police to do their job!”

The announcement followed a proposal by senators Ted Cruz and Bill Cassidy that condemned the movement and called for its designation as a domestic terrorist organization.
Twitter chimes in:

Don’t hesitate! Do it NOW! Designating Antifa a terrorist organization is way overdue!

About time! Thank you Mr. President for doing your very best to protect all Americans.

Any group of people who’s prime objective is to terrorize innocent civilians needs to be designated as such; no questions asked. This is a non-partisan issue. These are violent thugs preying on the weakest targets they can find, masquerading under political pretext.

I am tired of being told that I’m a sellout because I’m a student who supports Donald Trump!
He is delivering an economy that will allow my generation to live better lives than our parents!
I will Support Him!
Who’s with me?!?

AntiFa are criminal cowards who belong in JAIL without BAIL!
There is no room in America for those unhinged, radicalized fascists!#LockThemUp

Me President, this is long overdue. As an Oregonian, I have to deal with this stuff repeatedly. If you don’t stop it, us Patriots will. #2A

This is good. They hit people in the head with bike locks right here in San Jose during one of your rallies back in 2016. They are cowards. They have a right to a speedy trial and the sentencing they deserve. They are FASCISTS. They are like the Brown Shirts of the Nazis.

Its the right thing to do – antifa are criminals, so they cover their faces like all criminals do

Hahahaha! Yes. They use wooden poles, padlocks in socks, bike locks, collapsable batons, and crow bars.
But they also do use baseball bats. On Andy Ngo’s livestream before he was attacked he showed an Antifa with baseball bat in his backpack. @StewartRhodesOK
