Huge demonstrations occurred outside White House, with hundreds of demonstrators coming out on the streets making it impossible for law enforcement officers to preserve law and order in the area.

As one of the latest events, US President Donald Trump announced on Sunday that the anti-fascist Antifa party should be branded a terrorist organisation by the government. Antifa is a left-wing, anti-fascist militant activist in the US. It is made up of autonomous activist groups that aim to achieve their political objectives through the use of direct action.

The news, which caused a backlash, came in the wake of violent national demonstrations over police violence following the death of Floyd, who was seen on camera finding it hard to breathe when a Minneapolis police officer held his knee on Floyd’s back.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr condemned nationwide demonstrations alleging that “new extremists and agitators” had disrupted marches in U.S. cities over the shooting.

“The gangs of foreign extremists and agitators are manipulating the crisis to follow their own distinct and aggressive agenda,” Barr said. Notably, it is also uncertain how many demonstrators from Antifa are taking part in protests around the US.

In the meantime, four Minneapolis police officers have been sacked for their role in Floyd ‘s murder. The accident took place on Monday (May 25) when the police responded to a request about an suspected forgery and discovered a suspect seated inside a vehicle.

Floyd was seen by two officers who reported that the suspect had “physically defied” them when they told him to leave. According to the police, Floyd was handcuffed by officers who “appeared to be suffering from cardiac problems.” Police said the man died in the hospital within a few hours.
