While his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, was in court denying a judge’s request for his client list, Mr. Trump was speaking at a campaign rally in Hialeah, Florida. Trump has already been emboiled in plenty of controversy over his blatant racist sentiment, and on Monday, he wasted no time blurting out racist comments.
‘Hispanics! Are there any Hispanics in the room? No. I doubt it.’
There was a mixture of cheering, booing, and laughing in the crowd.
Donald Trump just awkwardly said this to his crowd at an event in Hialeah, FL:
"Hispanics! Are there are any Hispanics in the room? No. I doubt it."
The crowd booed, cheered and laughed. Behavior like this is why they were given the nickname deplorables.pic.twitter.com/HHMGbytOeK

Mr. Trump’s campaign was largely tainted with racist ideology in order to get enough supporters to put him in the White House. He attracted racists and ne0-Nazis like a magnet. If that wasn’t clear to begin with, the events back in August in Charlottesville, Virginia, definitely solidified this assertion when a man drove his truck into a crowd of peaceful protesters killing 32 year-old Heather Heyer and injuring many others.
Racism is alive and well in the United States, especially thanks to Mr. Trump and his continuous spewing of racist rhetoric. It is obvious that Trump continues to make comments such as these to stir up his base because sadly, it works. Just in January, Trump tried to maintain that he is probably one of the “least racist” people out there. This was after the now-infamous comment he made about “shithole countries.”
Here’s what Twitter had to say:
For now, the president’s disgusting bigotry is not going to stop, and in fact, it might even become more inflated the more he campaigns for the 2020 election. This tactic worked before so why wouldn’t it work again?
