“They should, I think they’re afraid to,” Trump replied.

“In my book it’s virtually a part of their campaign, Antifa, the Democrats act like ‘gee I don’t know exactly what that is.’

“Take a look at Portland, take a look at any place you want to take a look at.”

Biden has yet to publicly condemn Antifa during his presidential campaign – despite the group’s links to violent protests and vandalizing of monuments and federal property.

The president then continued to lash out at members of the Democratic party over their request for “$3.5billion for universal mail-in voting.”

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are holding American people hostage over money for radical left ring agenda that the company doesn’t want.”

On Monday Trump slammed the duo over a delayed coronavirus stimulus package.

“So now Schumer and Pelosi want to meet to make a deal. Amazing how it all works, isn’t it,” Trump tweeted.

“Where have they been for the last 4 weeks when they were “hardliners”, and only wanted BAILOUT MONEY for Democrat run states and cities that are failing badly? They know my phone number!”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, however, denied reaching out to Trump when speaking with MSNBC‘s Morning Joe.

“Fables from Donald Trump,” Schumer said.

“No, we didn’t call him, he makes these things up,” he added.

American’s may not see the next wave of checks until September at earliest if Congress cannot come to an agreement by Friday.

Earlier this week, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said “If we can get a fair deal, we’re willing to do it this week,” when asked about a stimulus plan during an interview with CNBC.

Lawmakers appear to still be deadlocked after more than two weeks of negotiation, even as a union representative for the IRS said the agency is in “a better position” to send stimulus checks in August than it was in April.


Chad Hooper, national president of the Professional Managers Association, which counts IRS managers among its members, told CNBC on Tuesday that the Friday deadline is key to getting checks out this month.

“The infrastructure is already in place to administer such a payment,” he told the outlet.

Both parties are on board of sending eligible Americans another $1,200 check, the rest of their stimulus plans dilemma has to do with unemployment benefits.
