Homeland Security warned President Trump’s administration as recently as May about the potential for violence by white supremacists and other ultra-conservative groups.

The intelligence bulletin, entitled “White Supremacist Extremism Poses Persistent Threat of Lethal Violence, warned of “lethal violence over the next year,” according to Foreign Policy [2], which obtained a copy. 

“We assess lone actors and small cells within the white supremacist extremist movement likely will continue to pose a threat of lethal violence over the next year,” the bulletin [3] reads.

The bulletin also indicates that white supremacists are responsible for the marjory of domestic terrorism.

They  “were responsible for 49 homicides in 26 attacks from 2000 to 2016…more than any other domestic extremist movement,” the document states.
