the Trump Organization:

    ANTIFA, the shadowy, violent far-left radical group President Trump said he will designate as a terrorist organization, is most infamously known for its clashes with white supremacist groups in Charlottesvile, Va., and for protesting a speech from a conservative celebrity at Berkeley, Calif. The Trump administration has blamed ANTIFA – short for anti-fascist – for agitating attacks on police, inciting looting and burning down businesses during the protests that have been occurring nationwide in response to the death of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer last Monday. Attorney General William Barr, in a statement Sunday announcing the enforcement action against the group, said “violent radical elements” are hijacking legitimate protests to “pursue their own separate, violent, and extremist agenda.” What does ANTIFA stand for? Mark Bray, a history professor at Dartmouth College who wrote about the ANTIFA movement in his 2017 book, “The Anti-Fascist Handbook,” said the majority of...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has blamed antifa activists for violence at protests over police killings of black people, but antifa isn’t an organization and targeting it isn’t simple. A look at what antifa is and is not: WHAT IS ANTIFA? Short for “anti-fascists,” antifa is not a single organization but rather an umbrella term for far-left-leaning militant groups that confront or resist neo-Nazis and white supremacists at demonstrations. There is no hierarchical structure to antifa or universal set of tactics that makes its presence immediately recognizable, though members tend to espouse revolutionary and anti-authoritarian views, said Mark Bray, a historian at Rutgers University and author of “Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook.” “They do different things at different times in different ways, some of which there is evidence of them breaking the law. Other times there is not,” Bray said. Literature from the antifa movement encourages followers to monitor the...
    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump and Twitter tangled over truth and consequences this past week as the social media giant flagged the president’s tweets for spreading false information and potentially inciting violence. The episode left Trump fuming and threatening reprisals against the platform he uses constantly to hint at or lay out policy, talk up his record, sound off on critics and spread conspiracy theories and misinformation. And in the same week that Twitter gave Trump a pass on his baseless innuendo about a broadcaster, the organization was left juggling fraught questions about freedom of expression and when and how to gag a president.

    (CNN)President Donald Trump's announcement that his administration will designate Antifa as a terrorist organization is surely unconstitutional because it would effectively criminalize joining an American domestic ideological group. Peter BergenThanks to the First Amendment, the US government has historically avoided designating domestic groups on both the left and right as terrorist. Belonging to such groups is consistent with the legitimate exercise of your First Amendment right to freedom of speech and belief — whether you are a white supremacist or an environmental activist. Of course, should an American citizen commit a crime in service of her extremist beliefs she can be prosecuted for that crime, but she can't be prosecuted for merely belonging to the group, no matter how objectionable its views might be. The situation is quite different when it comes to terrorist groups based overseas. If you look at the National Counterterrorism Center's list of designated terrorist...
    (CNN)President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday that the United States will designate Antifa as a terrorist organization, even though the US government has no existing legal authority to label a wholly domestic group in the manner it currently designates foreign terrorist organizations. Current and former government officials say it would be unconstitutional for the US government to proscribe First Amendment-protected activity inside the US based on simple ideology. US law allows terrorist designations for foreign groups since belonging to those groups doesn't enjoy the same protections.Antifa, short for anti-fascists, describes a broad group of people whose political beliefs lean toward the left -- often the far left -- but do not conform with the Democratic Party platform.Antifa positions can be hard to define, but many members support oppressed populations and protest the amassing of wealth by corporations and elites. Some employ radical or militant tactics to get out their messages.An additional...
    The U.S. will designate the “Antifa” group as a terrorist organization, President Trump said Sunday, as his administration blames the leftist organization for much of the violence at police-brutality protests across the country. Mr. Trump announced his plan in a series of tweets about the ongoing unrest in multiple cities in the wake of George Floyd’s death. Mr. Floyd, a black man, died after a white officer kneeled on his neck area for nearly nine minutes during an arrest in Minneapolis. The president has blamed far-left “militants” for the violence, including looting and fires, at the resulting protests, while Democratic voices say more investigation into white nationalist intervenors is warranted.

    President Trump on Sunday said the government will designate Antifa — the far-left extremist group his administration claims is carrying out violence during the nationwide George Floyd protests — as a “terrorist” organization. “The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization,” the president said. The message was part of a series of tweets about the demonstrations that have been roiling cities across the country following the death of Floyd at the hands of police in Minneapolis last Monday. “Congratulations to our National Guard for the great job they did immediately upon arriving in Minneapolis, Minnesota, last night. The ANTIFA led anarchists, among others, were shut down quickly. Should have been done by Mayor on first night and there would have been no trouble!” Trump also tweeted. “Other Democrat run Cities and States should look at the total shutdown of Radical Left Anarchists in Minneapolis last...
    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump has announced that he would withdraw funding from the World Health Organization, end Hong Kong’s special trade status and suspend visas of Chinese graduate students suspected of conducting research on behalf of their government, escalating tensions with China that have surged during the coronavirus pandemic. Trump has been expressing anger at the World Health Organization for weeks over what he has portrayed as an inadequate response to the initial outbreak of the coronavirus in China’s Wuhan province late last year. The president said in a White House announcement Friday that Chinese officials “ignored” their reporting obligations to the WHO and pressured the organization to mislead the public about an outbreak that has now killed more than 100,000 Americans.

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) - Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday announced the deaths of the first two U.N. peacekeepers from COVID-19. He made the announcement at a ceremony marking the International Day of U.N. Peacekeepers, saying both peacekeepers, who died Thursday and Friday, were serving in Mali. The U.N. said one was from Cambodia and the other from El Salvador.

    On Friday, President Donald Trump announced America would cut ties with the World Health Organization after weeks of criticism of the agency's handling of the new coronavirus outbreak. The World Health Organization (WHO) was established in 1948, about three years after diplomats discussed the need for a global health organization during the formation of the United Nations. As the directing and coordinating authority on international health within the U.N. system, the organization is tasked with working with 194 member states to combat diseases and improve public health around the world. Dr. Michael Ryan, director of WHO's Health Emergencies Programme, described WHO's mission during a press conference in April as "to establish global standards and to give strong advice to countries regarding public health measures." During health emergencies, such as the coronavirus pandemic, the WHO is responsible for offering support to member states, as well as, guidance on the best ways...
    WASHINGTON — President Trump on Friday announced he is suspending the United States’ relationship with the World Health Organization — accusing the global body of covering up the coronavirus crisis with China. At a press conference in the White House’s Rose Garden, Trump accused the United Nations organization of being under the control of the Communist nation and said it failed to provide transparency over the origins of the COVID-19 outbreak. “China has total control over the World Health Organization,” Trump said, noting that the US contributed $450 million to the WHO each year compared to China’s $40 million. “We have detailed reforms that it must make and engaged with them directly, but they have refused to act,” he continued. “Because they have failed to make the requested and greatly needed reforms, we will today be terminating our relationship with the World Health Organization and redirecting those funds to other...
    President Trump announced Friday that he's "terminating" the United States' relationship with the World Health Organization, claiming China has total control over it.
