On his Twitter account, Hawley called the protesters “antifa thugs,” adding that they “shouted into a megaphone, shouted at my wife when she asked you to leave, destroyed private property, knocked on our door and terrorized our neighbors.”.

It is known that during the protests, only Hawley’s wife and newborn daughter were in the house. The senator himself, according to him, was in Missouri at that moment..

Shutdown DC tweeted a different version of the development: According to activists, they “sang songs, chanted slogans and shared our stories. A small group of people brought a copy of the Constitution to the door of the [Senator’s] house. “.

On January 1, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home in San Francisco was vandalized. The protesters put a pig’s head next to the speaker’s garage and painted the walls of the house with the words “Cancel the rent” and “2 thousand dollars.” Thus, activists expressed their outrage at the fact that Congress did not approve a one-time payment of material assistance in the amount of $ 2,000 to all Americans..

White House Statement

On Tuesday evening, the White House press office commented on the actions of antifa activists, calling the actions against politicians “domestic terrorism” and stating that “this violence and lawlessness has no place in the United States.”.

The statement said that President Donald Trump today signed an executive order under which federal authorities will assess antifa’s actions in light of laws prohibiting foreign citizens associated with terrorist organizations from entering the United States..

“President Trump will not allow antifa or any other terrorist organization to destroy our great country,” says a White House press release..
