President claims RNC attendee told him of traveling on DC-bound plane with 'thugs wearing these dark uniforms'
President Trump told Fox News' Laura Ingraham in an exclusive interview Monday night that he believes demonstrations outside the White House on the final night of the Republican National Convention last week were bankrolled by "some very stupid rich people."
Trump added on "The Ingraham Angle" that an RNC attendee had traveled to Washington "on a plane from a certain city, and in the plane it was almost completely loaded with thugs wearing these dark uniforms, black uniforms with gear and this and that."
The president declined to say who had told him the story, but promised Ingraham he would reveal it "sometime."
"This person was coming to the Republican National Convention and there were like seven people in the plane [with] this person, and then a lot of people were on the plane to do big damage," Trump insisted. "This is all happening."
The president added that "people you've never heard of, people in the dark shadows" may be facilitating much of the left's activism.
"The money is coming from some very stupid rich people [who] have no idea that if their thing ever succeeded, which it won't, they will be thrown to the wolves like you've never seen before," he said.
Trump also criticized corporations who have supported the Black Lives Matter organization, saying they were taking "the easiest path. That's a very dangerous path.
"Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization," the president said. "You remember [them chanting] 'Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon' [in 2015].
"That was the first time I ever heard of Black Lives Matter. I said, 'That's a terrible name, it's so discriminatory.' It's bad for Black people, it's bad for everybody and all of a sudden it becomes like sort of -- although now if you look, it's gone way down because people are tired of this stuff, what's going on."
