President Donald Trump issued a threat to Washington Gov. Jay Inslee and Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan late Wednesday night, tweeting that if they don't clear the impromptu anarchist commune that's sprung up in the city's Capitol Hill neighborhood, "I will."

The autonomous zone, six blocks of east Seattle that were seized by protesters and set up when the Seattle Police Department abandoned its East Precinct earlier this week, has been described by the New York Times as "part-commune, part-street festival." This appears to be Trump's worst nightmare, as he said that these "ugly anarchists must be stooped" (sic), and threatened to intervene if Inslee and Durkan wouldn't.

In a later tweet, Trump called the protesters "domestic terrorists."
