Over the weekend, Black Lives Matter (BLM) founder Patrisse Cullors confirmed that one of the radical group’s “goals” is to remove President Donald Trump from the White House, stressing that voting him out in November is not good enough and that he should “resign” right now.
Moreover, in recently resurfaced video from 2015, Cullors made clear the organization’s ideological foundation, expressly stating that she and others in the movement are “trained Marxists.”00:2700:40
“Well, I’m hands down – Trump not only needs to not be in office in November but he should resign now,” Cullors told CNN “The Lead” host Jake Tapper, on Friday (see below). “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,” the BLM founder said. “But our goal is to get Trump out.”
In the resurfaced 2015 interview, Cullors was asked about a supposed “lack of ideological direction in Black Lives Matter” (see below).
