Trump downplays White Nationalist threat

One day after a white nationalist slaughtered 49 people in two Christchurch mosques, President Donald Trump — even as he professed to be horrified by the loss of so many innocent lives — came to the defense of white nationalists.

Asked by reporters whether he views white nationalism as a rising threat, Trump replied, “I don’t really,” and blamed the sort of white nationalist violence that occurred in Charlottesville and Christchurch on “people with serious problems.” And then, without breaking stride, he shifted the conversation to the “invasion” at our southern border and “crimes coming through our southern border.”

Trump himself is a racist and a white nationalist, period. America’s white nationalists

consider him their leader. At Charlottesville, former Klan leader David Duke declared, “We are determined to take our country back. We’re going to fulfill the promises of Donald Trump. That’s what we’ve believed in, that’s why we voted for Donald Trump, because he said he’s going to take our country back —and that’s what we’ve got to do.” And Trump is not above inciting his followers with violent rhetoric.

Oh sure, Trump uttered the obligatory condolences and words of condemnation in the wake of the horrific slaughter in New Zealand by a white nationalist. But he only condemned the results, not the ideology, which is his own ideology and the ideology that fuels his political agenda and whips up his supporters. So don’t expect anything more than fake sorrow and crocodile tears from this racist monster.

If you want to know what Trump really thinks of violence, revisit what he said during his campaign.
