Trump Blasts Biden Staffers for Donating to Fund that Bails Out Arrested Protesters

Monday morning, President Trump tweeted:

Sleepy Joe Biden’s people are so Radical Left that they are working to get the Anarchists out of jail, and probably more. Joe doesn’t know anything about it, he is clueless, but they will be the real power, not Joe. They will be calling the shots! Big tax increases for all, Plus!

Trump also appeared to reject claims that white supremacists groups were “mixed in” to riots and blamed ANTIFA by sharing a quote from Brian Kilmeade and adding “TRUE!”

“I don’t see any indication that there were any white supremest groups mixing in. This is an ANTIFA Organization. It seems that the first time we saw it in a major way was Occupy Wall Street. It’s the same mindset.” @kilmeade @foxandfriends TRUE!

The Hill reports over the weekend, several Biden staffers went on Twitter to say that they would direct money to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, a group that opposes cash bail and is putting up money to help arrested protesters avoid imprisonment ahead of their trials.

A Reuters analysis found that 13 Biden campaign staffers had posted about their donations to the group.

The Hill reached out to the Biden campaign on Monday morning for comment.

Minnesota officials announced on Sunday night that they arrested 150 people as part of an effort to enforce Gov. Tim Walz’s (D) curfew aimed at curbing protests that have erupted across the nation in response to Floyd’s death.
