After his uncouth remarks Friday about Haiti, El Salvador, and some countries in Africa, Donald Trump had to spent the next two days claiming that he’s really not a racist. He’s faced reporters and lied unconvincingly about what was said at Friday’s meeting. He’s faced criticism for his inaction on the Hawaiian missile warning. Instead of trying to lead the country through that scary warning, he was busy tweeting instead. He’s blamed Democrats for everything that’s wrong in this world, especially the problems with the DACA bill.
But on Sunday he took another expensive trip to one of his golf resorts. There he met with throngs of his supporters to soak in as much admiration as 24 people could give. One has to wonder if tomorrow he’ll call a press conference to brag about the record setting number of people who showed up to lay eyes on him.
Normally a racist will deny that they’re a racist, and to prove it they will exclaim that their best friend is black. Sure that argument sounds well thought out and believable, but nobody believes it. Well here’s Donald Trump surrounded by an adoring crowd (of mostly white people) and he plants himself right behind the one person of color in the crowd. Could it be coincidence that the one person of color just happens to be standing in Trump’s way? Well anything’s possible; but it’s not very likely. Most likely one of Trump’s handlers set up this whole photo op of Trump and his new best friend.
Apparently these Twitter users would like to see some things changed.
This is what America looks like when we come together and fight for LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL. We did it during the Civil Rights movement. We did it during the LGBTQ Equality movement. And we are doing it right now during #TheResistance movement. ???????? #VoteBlue2018 pic.twitter.com/uh8w7m1TrE

We the people should not see color, nationality, sexual orientation, nor religious beliefs – we are all simply HUMAN BEINGS living and helping each other day to day!!!! This is how democracy works for ALL!!!!

6 months ago Trump blocked my twin @EdKrassen and myself on Twitter.
We didn't roll over. We fought back.
Ed and I now have nearly 1M combined followers & won't let up until this racist man is removed.
Last week our tweets were viewed a combined 27 million times.

He did the same to me until my group took him to Civil Court as a class action suit. I met Trump before he ran. Twelve years ago in Brighten Beach Brooklyn. I applied for a grant for a community program. He turned me down. He said Poor people are not worth helping. Nice to meet U

If Donny blocked me from Twitter I’d find away to print it and make a button out of it and wear it like a badge of honor. Consider it an honor to be blocked from him
