US President Donald Trump has praised the actions of the National Guard deployed in Minneapolis, Minnesota to stop the ongoing riots, suggesting that the force should have been called in earlier, APA reports citing Sputnik.

POTUS highlighted the National Guard’s efforts in shutting down the violent rallies allegedly led by the Antifa movement, whom the president labelled "anarchists", and suggested that other states should follow Minnesota’s suit and crack down on the group "before it is too late".

Trump went as far as to announce that Antifa will be designated by the US government as a terrorist organisation, thereby effectively making it illegal on American soil. The president also slammed the work of the "lamestream media", accusing them of sowing "hatred and anarchy" by spreading "fake news".
