Biden: Antifa Is An Idea, Not An Organization


President Donald Trump warned Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden that Antifa will "overthrow" him if he doesn't take the group more seriously after the former vice president called the association an "idea" and not an organization.

"Antifa is an idea and not an organization," Biden said Tuesday night.

"Oh, you've got to be kidding," Trump reacted.

"Antifa is a dangerous, radical group" Trump said. "And you ought to be careful with them. They will overthrow you in two seconds."

CHRIS WALLACE, MODERATE: You have repeatedly criticized the--the vice president for not specifically calling out Antifa and other left-wing--

TRUMP: That's right.

WALLACE: --extremist groups but are you willing to night to condemn white supremacist and militia groups--

TRUMP: Sure.

WALLACE: --and to say that may need to stand down and not add to the violence in a number of these cities as we saw in Kenosha and as we have seen in Portland?

TRUMP: Sure, I am willing--

WALLACE: Are you prepared to specifically--

BIDEN: Do it.

WALLACE: Well, go ahead, sir.

TRUMP: I would say--I would say almost everything I see is from the left wing, not from the right wing.

WALLACE: So what do you--what do you--what are you saying?

TRUMP: I--I'm willing to do anything. I want to see peace--

WALLACE: Well then do it, sir--

BIDEN: Say it, do it. Say it.

TRUMP: Do you want to call them--what you want to call them? Give me a name. Give me a name.

WALLACE: White supremacist and--

TRUMP: Go ahead. It would you like me to condemn?

WALLACE: White supremacist.

BIDEN: Proud Boys.

WALLACE: And right wing militia.

TRUMP: Proud Boys stand back and standby but I will tell you what I will tell you what somebody's got to do something about Antifa and the left because this is not a right wing problem.

BIDEN: His own--his own FBI--

TRUMP: This is a left-wing--

BIDEN: --director said (INAUDIBLE) white supremacist, Antifa is an idea and not an organization.

TRUMP: Oh, you've got to be kidding.

TRUMP: Well, then you know what he is wrong.

WALLACE: No, no, no. Where done--we are done, sir.

BIDEN: Everybody--everybody--

WALLACE: We are moving on--we are moving--

TRUMP: When a bat hit you over the head it's not an idea.

BIDEN: Everybody in your administration tells you the truth is a--has a bad idea.

TRUMP: Can I tell you what?

BIDEN: You have no ideas (INAUDIBLE).

TRUMP: Antifa--Antifa is a dangerous--

WALLACE: All right, gentlemen--

TRUMP: --radical group.

WALLACE: --we are now moving on to the Trump and Biden records--

TRUMP: And you ought to be careful with them. They will overthrow you in two seconds.
