    Starting with reagan, the GOP turned into the White Christian Nationalists/Supremacists party. 45* is the end result of this decades long radicalization and slow implosion. RIP GOP: 1854 – 2020

    The seeds of racism were sown long ago. Trump is watering the plant and adding fertilizer to make sure racism grows.

      @Alexander The Great Come on everyone can’t be racist, if everyone is racist, then no word would excist, to know racism is to have to experience racism, did you see how he talked at his rally last night, now that’s big time racist, go back to one country is racist, no matter whom it’s thrown at, he’s racist and he’s is spreading hate at his rallies as this Is not normal.

    • @Alexander The Great what’s true about the German Hitler in the white house.
      Alexander why don’t you support him to tell Melania to go back home.
      Omar is educated than Trump.
      He can’t write a length of page without errors in grammar. Is time he takes extra lessons to spell.
      Stop blaming immigrants for your failures. Go to college to improve your life.

      @Common Sense telling anti American racist to leave our country if they don’t like it here isn’t racist. Its common sense. He is looking out for their best interests. Maybe they will be able to find happiness somewhere else. If I hate a place i definitely would not stay there and no normal person would.

    As if Donald’s years of sowing birtherism wasn’t convincing enough

  5. Why are you so upset? Don’t you get it? This is just in it’s infancy.
    Trump and co. Is just warming up
    and you ain’t seen nothin yet.
    2020 will be about race and the true target is not just immigrants,
    African Americans are the true and
    ultimate target. The real opponent of Trump.

      @greg hill The deffinition of Racism is the belief that one more race is Superior/Inferior to another. So please cite even one time Trump said one race was Superior/Inferior to another.

    • @Khyron KravsheraI beg to differ, Khyron. Racism is BASED on a belief of superiority, but is not the only identifier. As even you must know, it manifests itself in different ways, and if you want to wait until you hear Trump cite superiority, well good luck. You might as well wait to listen out for him supporting adultery too. Racists rarely risk being so overt, but if he told me to go back where I came from, I think I’d smell a rat.

      @greg hill In other words you can’t cite any instance of Trump actually claiming one race is Superior/Inferior. But you assume he is Racist to such a degree that anytime he says or does anything to or about a Non-White person you assume he is motivated by Racism rather than any other conceivable motive.

  6. We are not going anywhere. Big Blue Wave coming in 2020

    Even Jesus fought back. He whipped them out…

    Before this is all over, I believe we may witness violence and death committed in the name of Donald Trump and what he’s coming to represent. I’m guessing…and it’s not an outrageous conjecture…that it’ll secretly be the highlight of his life. I believe he’s _that_ damaged.

  10. Drumpf in a glass prison cell on display for his cult should be his next reality show on fox. The sooner Drumpf is in prison the better. God Bless John Lewis. God Bless the Squad.

    this was started long before MLK

  12. Think PROJECTION SO KEEP PROJECTING.

  13. So the question isn’t ‘is this racist?’ It is: ‘Is it more racist that he assumed all these colored women are from other countries, or is it more racist that he believes second generation Americans are still unamerican?’ Either way both racist ideas were inadvertently expressed in one tweet. And Trump supporters need to own this. He told it like it is, right? That’s why y’all voted him in the first place, so what if he’s officially racist? MAGA.

  14. Exhibit A for term limits .

  15. Harvest time. Trump will use illegals to cherry pick…
    The seeds have been laid for centuries.🇺🇸

  16. How’s all the love working out for the woke crowd? Seems to be getting you steamrolled from what I can see. The only way to fight back against a narcissist is to humiliate him because he can’t stand not being adored.

  17. If you don’t like the fact that America is diverse, you leave!!!!!!!!

  18. Liberal minded Republicans won’t be duped again

  19. Trump is a Cancer of Racism, the whole world know he don’t love America. He love the Russian and soon Russian will rule the world.

  20. This is Rich. Remember Brian Williams was fired from his last job for lying. Cummings a few years ago said sharks are still following slave ships.
