The now-removed ads featured an image of an inverted red triangle with a black border and the message: "Dangerous MOBS of far-left groups are running through our streets and causing absolute mayhem. They are DESTROYING our cities and rioting – it's absolute madness … Please add your name IMMEDIATELY to stand with your President and his decision to declare ANTIFA a Terrorist Organization."

Trump and his campaign have repeatedly made false assertions about "antifa", a term that refers to loose networks of leftwing activists opposed to fascism and white nationalism. There appears to be no evidence that antifa organizations were involved in incidences of rioting during the recent protests against the alleged police murder of George Floyd.

The inverted red triangle was used by the Nazis to identify political prisoners in concentration camps during the Holocaust.
