President Donald Trump said on Saturday that it was not the protesters who were to blame for the riots, pogroms, and robberies, but people from radical left organizations, including Antifa.
The president said the most aggressive rioters have nothing to do with protests over the death of George Floyd.
вЂњThese are organized groups that have nothing to do with George Floyd,вЂќ Trump tweeted.
Minnesota Governor Tim Wals announced on Saturday that he would mobilize the National Guard to stop robberies, riots, and violence in Minneapolis after the city was swept by protests Friday night.
Wals said the identity of the organizers of the riots will be officially published. He also said that most of the violence comes from people who came from outside the state. Statistics that he currently has: 20% are residents of Minnesota, 80% are people from other states.
