If U.C. Berkeley does not allow free speech and practices violence on innocent people with a different point of view - NO FEDERAL FUNDS?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 2, 2017
The important thing about this tweet is the question mark after "NO FEDERAL FUNDS."
Trump is starting a conversation, not threatening or decreeing anything.
I would need to know the persons responsible for inciting the rioting. Were they Berkeley staff?
Berkeley did allow Milo Yiannopoulos to schedule a speech, but was the institution intent on shutting him down before it occurred?
If Berkeley is found responsible for undermining the free exchange of ideas on campus and inciting violence, it's reasonable to withhold federal funds.
