Trump Suggests Pulling Federal Funds from U.C. Berkeley After Violent Riots Rock Campus

Protests against the appearance of Breitbart Editor Milo Yiannopoulos turned violent Wednesday night on the campus of UC Berkeley, and the University canceled the controversial writer’s appearance, according to New Day.

CNN’s Dan Simon reported that campus police placed the campus on lockdown. Images of flames lighting up campus streets and smoke billowing into the sky played next to him. “[Police] fired pepper spray into the crowd. They fired rubber bullets to bring things under control.”

Responding this morning, President Trump tweeted:

UC Berkeley received $370 million in federal research funding during the 2015/2016 year.
