President Trump Responds to UC Berkeley Riots by Floating Sweeping Threat: ‘NO FEDERAL FUNDS’

Good, these cupcakes need to be taught a lesson.

Early Thursday morning, President Donald Trump floated the possibility of withholding federal funds from UC Berkeley after students at the California school rioted on campus in response to a planned speech by conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos.

The riots took place last Wednesday, forcing school officials to cancel the planned speech by the controversial Breitbart editor, who has used his celebrity to rail against everything from feminism to the liberal left’s fear of free speech. In response, POTUS took to Twitter to rail against the school’s “violence on innocent people.”

Yiannopoulos’ speech was intended to speak out against “sanctuary campuses,” better known as the coddling of ideas and the hyper safe space culture. UC Berkeley police told students to vacate the areas of protest immediately, and reports indicate that police warned students that their resources included, “chemical agents, batons and less lethal munitions.”

A Walgreens near the campus was spray-painted with the words, “Kill Fascists,” “Kill Trump,” and “Fuck Milo,” and adjacent ATM machines were smashed by rioters.
