Trump on Berkeley Burnings Over Milo Speech: ‘NO FEDERAL FUNDS?’

BerkeleyPresident Donald Trump on Thursday sent out a scathing Twitter message to the University of California at Berkeley, threatening to pull federal funding from the school because of its violent student body uprising in the face of a planned speech from Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos.

Students, as previously reported at here, waged riots on campus in protest of a Milo speech, that was soon after cancelled.
Trump, in a tweet, wrote: “If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view – NO FEDERAL FUNDS?”
Trump’s tweet came after protesters smashed windows and tossed smoke bombs at the student union building, all in hopes of stopping Yiannopolous from Breitbart from speaking.

Yiannopoulos had to be escorted to safety. At least three people were injured in the melee.
