Donald Trump promised on Twitter this week that "the United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization".

Legal experts immediately threw cold water on the proposal, arguing that there may be no means by which any domestic entity can be designated in this way.

But, perhaps more importantly, experts also say that there is no actual antifa organization for Trump to define in this way. Put simply: antifa does not really exist as a distinct entity.
