Police arrested New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's daughter on Saturday during the protests in Manhattan, New York, following the death of George Floyd, who died under police custody.

Police arrested Chiara de Blasio near 12th Street and Broadway on Saturday.

The New York Mayor's daughter was nabbed after police declared an unlawful assembly in the area, the New York Post reported.

She has since been released.

According to one source, de Blasio was blocking traffic on Broadway, and when police asked her to move, she refused.

“That was a real hotspot; police cars were getting burned there, people were throwing and yelling, fighting with cops. There were thousands of people in that area at that time,” the source said.

De Blasio's daughter's arrest comes a day after the mayor said he would not tolerate unlawful behavior by demonstrators.

“We appreciate and respect all peaceful protests, but now it is time for people to go home,” de Blasio said late Saturday night.

In the light of protests which have been breaking out in cities across the US, President Donald Trump declared that the violent far-left movement known as Antifa would be designated as a terrorist group by the US Government.

"The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization," President Trump tweeted.

Earlier Trump described the rioting protesters as "organized groups" that have nothing to do with mourning the death of George Floyd.

"These are 'Organized Groups' that have nothing to do with George Floyd," Trump tweeted Saturday morning. "Sad!"

"The professionally managed so-called 'protesters' at the White House had little to do with the memory of George Floyd," he said in a tweet moments before.

Attorney General Bill Barr echoed Trump's notion that the riots are professionally organized and driven by "far-left extremist groups."

"Groups of outside radicals and agitators are exploiting the situation to pursue their own separate and violent agenda," Barr said.

"In many places, it appears the violence is planned, organized, and driven by anarchistic and far-left extremists, using Antifa-like tactics, many of whom travel from out of state to promote the violence," Barr's statement continued.
