US President Donald Trump announced his intention to designate “Antifa” as a terrorist organization. Petr Bystron, on the Foreign Policy Committee of the German Bundestag, commented:
“Donald Trump is doing the right thing in designating these violent extremist groups as terrorists. Antifa is an anti-democratic hate group whose radical left-wing ideology rejects the free market and freedom of speech. The Alternative for Germany applauds President Trump’s announcement and urges the EU and German government to follow suit and finally act against these openly violent and extremists gangs.
