Antifa activists rolled into Phoenix Tuesday evening to protest President Trump’s campaign-style rally, screaming at Trump supporters and throwing smoke bombs at them, according to video clips that were posted on Twitter.
A petition started on August 17, asking for Antifa to be formally recognized as a terrorist organization, has already accumulated over 236,000 signatures.
Inside the Phoenix rally Tuesday evening, Trump denounced the Antifa group during his speech. “They’re wearing masks, and they’ve got clubs and everything… Antifa!” he shouted.
Below are video clips shared on Twitter showing a portion of the clashes outside during the rally, beginning with Trump denouncing the group.
