WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald J. Trump today said a 75-year-old man, Martin Gugino, who approached Buffalo police during a protest last week and shoved to the ground is actually an Antifa provocateur.
“Buffalo protester shoved by Police could be an ANTIFA provocateur. 75 year old Martin Gugino was pushed away after appearing to scan police communications in order to black out the equipment. @OANN I watched, he fell harder than was pushed. Was aiming scanner. Could be a set up,” Trump tweeted.
“I just spoke w/Martin Gugino’s attorney. She told me, “There is no need to go around name calling, accusing people of being things they’re not. Everything will work itself out,” said a local news affiliate in response to Trump’s tweet.
