Bloomberg QuickTake: Now published this video item, entitled “Trump Says He’ll Make a ‘Fairly Fast’ Decision on TikTok Deal” – below is their description.
President Donald Trump says he is bothered by FBI Director Chris Wray testimony this week that antifa is an ideology, not an organization. “The fact is that antifa is a bad group,” said Trump Friday on the White House driveway before departing for Minnesota. “They’re criminals and they’re anarchists and they’re agitators and they’re looters and rioters and everything else, they’re bad. And when a man doesn’t say that, that bothers me. I wonder why he’s not saying that.” Wray did not dispute in his testimony Thursday before Congress that antifa activists were a serious concern, saying that antifa was a “real thing” and that the FBI had undertaken “any number of properly predicated investigations into what we would describe as violent anarchist extremists,” including into individuals who identify with antifa. But, he said, “It’s not a group or an organization. It’s a movement or an ideology.” That characterization contradicts the depiction from Trump, who in June singled out antifa – short for “anti-fascists” and an umbrella term for far-left-leaning militant groups – as responsible for the violence that followed George Floyd’s death. Trump tweeted that the U.S. would be designating antifa as a terrorist organization, even though such designations are historically reserved for foreign groups and antifa lacks the hierarchical structure of formal organizations. “I don’t I did not like his answers yesterday and I’m not sure he like to be there,” said Trump. “I’m sure that he probably would agree with me antifa is bad, really bad.” The president also talked about opening the US-Canadian border and looking at the sale of TikTok. This comes after the United States said on Friday that it will ban downloads of the Chinese apps TikTok and WeChat on Sunday. It cited national security and data privacy concerns.
