But adding Mr Trump's definition of "free speech" to the list of offences would need a new law to be passed by Congress.

Democratic Rep. Val Demings (Fla.) said on Thursday that the violent riots that took place at the University of California, Berkley the prior night were a "beautiful sight".

"He was invited by the campus Republican club, but he has now cancelled his speech for security reasons, as fire was set at the university".

The decision came two hours before Wednesday's talk by Milo Yiannopoulos, a polarizing editor of the Breitbart News site, after some 1,500 people had gathered outside the venue.

UC Berkeley officials condemned the violence of the protests the following day. The attackers, who were not affiliated with the university, were taken into custody by UC Berkeley police.

And even if such a law were passed, Berkeley's situation would be highly unlikely to be affected, said Terry Hartle, vice president for Government and Public Affairs at the American Council on Education. He has been permanently barred from Twitter for targeting "Ghostbusters" actor and "Saturday Night Live" cast member Leslie Jones.

'It is a chilling threat, one that he probably doesn't have the power to implement but it might make it harder for individuals to speak out for fear of retaliation, ' says Kristie Boering, a chemistry professor at Berkeley.

Trump threatened to cut funds for the university's flagship Berkeley campus in a Twitter posting accusing the institution of failing to support free speech and practicing violence against innocent people.

Her co-host Joy Behar, claiming to be the "first First Amendment person here", said she really believed in the right to free speech, but questioned why Berkeley would invite someone who many believe is racist, misogynist and little more than an "alt-right" provocateur.

According to an article on Breitbart News, Yiannopoulos was planning to use the event to launch a campaign against so-called sanctuary campuses, which have declared their opposition to Trump's tough stance toward undocumented immigrants.

"They protested someone who I think we've booked on the show", Maher said during tonight's panel discussion about the protests at Berkeley earlier this week. There were no immediate reports of arrests or serious injuries. I doubt whether the black-clad rioters were students - I know I wouldn't have been able to afford to keep a black ensemble in my wardrobe when I was a student in a co-op at Berkeley.

He said the 38,000-student campus, home to the Free Speech Movement of the 1960s, respected Yiannopoulos' right to speak.
