    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - US President Donald Trump said that the left-wing Antifa movement could be deemed a terrorist group in the United States.

    "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). Would make it easier for police to do their job!" he tweeted late Saturday.

    Antifa is a left-wing organization classified as domestic terrorists by the FBI and the DHS. The group’s members are reported to have assaulted their right-wing rivals.

    The recent Antifa protests against a march of Proud Boys group took place in Portland, Oregon in late June. Back then the demonstrations turned violent, with one journalist being assaulted while covering the rally.
