President Trump needs to take the advice of the former Democratic Presidential nominee. Hillary Clinton is nearly demanding that President Trump address the issues across our country that involve hate crimes. He needs to stick to his word from a previous press conference, when he said he would stop long-simmering racism.
The Kansas City Star released an article about the widow of Srinivas Kuchibhotla, who was fatally shot in a bar in Olathe, Kansas. Clinton shared their article on Twitter in addition to her advice for Trump.
Trump’s former Democratic competitor made sure he was aware of what she had to say on Twitter:
‘With threats & hate crimes on rise, we shouldn’t have to tell @POTUS to do his part. He must step up & speak out.’

During a news conference, the widow requested ways to put an end to hate crimes within our country.
Sunayana Dumala, the widow of the man killed in the Kansas bar, said:
‘I have a question in my mind: Do we belong?’
Along with her husband, she traveled to the United States from India to attend college.
Assertively, she said:
‘I need an answer. I need an answer from the government. … What are they going to do to stop this hate crime?’
Earlier this month, Clinton also tweeted about the president needing to address the terrible events taking place through out our country.
‘JCC threats, cemetery desecration & online attacks are so troubling & they need to be stopped. Everyone must speak out, starting w/ @POTUS.’

After practically being forced last week to address the issue of the rise in hate crimes specifically targeting Jewish institutions in the U.S., Trump denounced anti- Semitism.
As said to MSNBC , during his tour of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, Trump simply said:
‘Anti-Semitism is horrible and it’s going to stop and it has to stop.’
He did mention that the museum tour was touching for him.
‘meaningful reminder of why we have to fight bigotry, intolerance and hatred in all of its ugly forms.’
Clinton lost the election, she shouldn’t have to tell the man that was elected by our country how to do his job.
