Patrisse Cullors, the founder of the Black Lives Matter movement, has some troubling political views and admitted over the weekend that one of the main goals of the group is to remove President Trump from office.
Cullors told CNN’s Jake Tapper that Trump isn’t fit for office.
“Trump needs to be out of office. He is not fit for office. And so what we are going to push for is a move to get Trump out.”
“While we’re also going to continue to push and pressure vice president Joe Biden around his policies and relationship to policing and criminalization, that’s going to be important,” the BLM founder said. “But our goal is to get Trump out.”

And in an old video from 2015 that’s resurfaced, she talks about the ideology behind the group and says they’re “trained Marxists.”
“We actually do have an ideological frame,” responded Cullors to the question. “Myself and Alicia, in particular, are trained organizers.”
“We are trained Marxists,” she added. “We are super versed on, sort of, ideological theories.”
