Maybe it’s because he’s weathered more hatred than any other president in modern history, maybe it’s because he really has the guts to speak the truth; either way, President Donald Trump is not interested in pretending that Black Lives Matter is an innocent, peaceful movement.
For the second time, POTUS denounced the group as “Marxist” and pointed to their history of calling for violence against police officers.
Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization,” he said during the interview, part of which aired Monday.
“You remember ‘pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.’ That was the first time I ever heard of Black Lives Matter,” he continued, referring to a chant used at a St. Paul, Minnesota Black Lives Matter protest in 2015.
As we have reported previously, it was also 2015 that one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter proudly declared that she and her fellow organizers were “trained Marxists.”
"We are trained Marxists."

“I said that’s a terrible name, it’s so discriminatory. It’s bad for black people. It’s bad for everybody,” President Trump continued to Black Lives Matter.

“People are tired of this stuff, what’s going on,” he also said. “The Black Lives Matter, if you look at what’s going on with the bats and the, a lot of thugs.”
Earlier this month, Trump issued similar comments about the organization.
“They were talking about policemen and women…It’s a Marxist group that is not looking for good things for our country,” he explained.
