Donald Trump is a racist.
I don’t understand why there is any question, debate, or conversation on this.
He was racist when he took out full-page ads that called for the death penalty for the Central Park 5. A confession from the actual criminal and DNA exonerated them.
He was racist when he voiced continual doubt about President Barack Obama’s American citizenship.
He was racist when he banned Muslims from entry into the US. It took three rounds, but he finally managed to get Supreme Court approval to “restrict the entry of nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia Syria, Yemen, North Korea, and Venezuela” (Politifact.com)
He was racist two weeks ago when he told four Congressional women of color to go back where they came from. Three were born in the US and the fourth is a naturalized citizen.
He was racist this past weekend when attacked Chairman Elijah Cummings, head of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform about the state of Baltimore, MD.
One thing you can say about him: he’s consistent.
Remember when Jeffrey Epstein was arrested and questions were being raised about Trump’s connection to him?
Trump launched his attack on The Squad.
Remember last week when Mueller testified in open session before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees? He clearly stated that he did not indict Trump because he is a sitting President, but that he could indict him once he leaves the office.
Trump launched an attack on Congressman Elijah Cummings after he questioned acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan about the conditions at the border. Cummings also subpoenaed Mazars, a long-time Trump accounting firm for Trump’s financial records. A federal judge upheld that subpoena.
Trump’s racist rants against people of color are nothing but a distraction ploy.
As The Squad said: Don’t take the bait.
Stay focused. This is just the next step in Trump’s efforts to divide We The People. Unity and knowledge among We The People is his nightmare. Exposure of his shady dealings and empty promises is his nightmare.
The truth about Trump is clear.
Too much time and energy are taken up with this deflection tactic. We know Trump is racist.
We know he does not care about taking care of anyone but himself and seeing to it his rich friends get what they want, as much as they want.
We know he is a liar and a con man. Not convinced?
Trump has repeatedly stated he got a “small $1 million loan” from his father, Fred Trump and “built it into an empire.”
Fact: According to MSNBC, and even Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio
“It was always a scam.” Trump lost about $1 billion over a ten-year span. His businesses have filed bankruptcy 6 times, and he has been sued for not paying employees and contractors.
Trump University = Con. Google it.
So let’s move on.
Let’s talk about climate change. Let’s discuss the income gap. Discuss how to correct the tax situation that benefits 1% of the country and drops a huge weight on the rest of us.
Let’s discuss the crushing weight of debt, the cost of living, the lack of a living wage.
Let’s talk about Big Pharma and private insurance companies and why so many people in this country cannot afford healthcare.
Let’s talk about inhumane conditions at the border. Work out some kind of compromise that eases the pressure on border patrol and speaks to why these people feel driven to leave their homes for the US.
I challenge media outlets to stop occupying so much of their air time with Trump and focus on what matters to the people. Focus on real issues. Report on what we really worry about.
Give the ConMan in Chief his 3-5 minutes and move on to actual issues that face Americans every day.
