A Black Lives Matter co-founder recently said that the group’s “goal is to get Trump out,” suggesting that President Donald Trump will be forced out of office by the movement and resign immediately. National File also recently reported that the same co-founder confessed to being a “trained Marxist” in a 2015 interview on the The Real News Network.
In a tweet containing an except from a recent interview with Jake Tapper, Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors reveals that the group’s “goal is to get Trump out,” and declared that the president should resign.
“I’ve heard a lot of criticism of former Vice President Joe Biden from civil rights activists,” said CNN’s Jake Tapper. “The election, obviously, will be a choice. How do you think Biden matches up compared to President Trump when it comes to these issues that are important to you?”
Cullors replied,”Trump not only needs to not be in office in November but he should resign now. Trump needs to be out of office. He is not fit for office. And so what we are going to push for is a move to get Trump out.”
“While we’re also going to continue to push and pressure vice president Joe Biden around his policies and relationship to policing and criminalization. That’s going to be important. But our goal is to get Trump out,” she added.

During a 2015 interview, Cullors admitted to being a “trained organizer” and a “trained Marxist.”
National File reported:
In the shortened 2015 clip taken from an interview for The Real News Network, Cullors says, “I think of a lot of things: The first thing I think of is that we actually do have an ideology frame.”
She continues, “Myself and Alicia, in particular, are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories, and I think what we really try to do is build a movement that can be utilized by many, many black folk.”
In 2016, billionaire globalist financier George Soros’s Open Society Foundations donated $33 million to Black Lives Matter groups.
National File reported:
In 2016, organizations in the Black Lives Matter movement received $33 million in grants from the Open Society Foundations, founded by Hungarian hedge fund manager George Soros in 1993, and the Center for American Progress, founded by former White House chief of staff and Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta in 2003.
The Washington Times reported that, in 2016, the Black Lives Matter coalition raised over $100 million from a series of wealthy liberal foundations including The Ford Foundation, in addition to $33 million in grants from the Open Society Foundations, with additional grant-making from the Center for American Progress.
PolitiFact notes that Open Society Foundations previously condemned violence, and claims that Open Society Foundations reiterated this regarding the recent unrest in emails.
Global Black Lives Matter protests were recorded across North American and European cities to protest the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.
