If Obama’s presidential campaigns and presidency could be summed up in one word, that word would be hope. If Trump’s campaign and presidency were summed up in one word, it would be fear. He isn’t letting up on the fear-mongering, either, despite devastating consequences in recent days.

Trump and his merry band of rabid followers at Fox News have pushed the notion that the brave group of people fighting for a better life for themselves and their children by walking thousands of miles, unarmed and repeatedly attacked, are some roving band of terrorist criminals coming to rape and murder us all.
Meanwhile, the terrorists are wearing red MAGA hats and attacking Trump’s listed enemies.
This is outrageous. We've seen absolutely no proof that Roy Moore, Paul Manafort or Rob Porter are in the caravan. https://t.co/ctGQ3YKnZz

If Democratic candidates followed the same tone as Trump, they could accurately say that if you want an administration filled with criminals committing indictable offenses, alleged attempted rapists on the Supreme Court, and corruption in the federal government, vote for Trump. Obama’s administration never experienced an indictment.
Trump cares an awful lot about the threat of women being raped, but only by undocumented immigrants, who do not commit violent crimes at any higher rate than documented immigrants or American citizens. In fact, they commit far fewer violent crimes. If a woman does come forward to report that she’s been raped, Trump attacks them, mocks them at political rallies, and calls them liars.
He also cares a lot about American citizens who are murdered or victimized by criminals in other ways, but only by undocumented immigrants, who again do not commit these crimes at any higher rate than other populations. When mass murders at the hands of white American men occur, Trump blames the victims for not carrying firearms.
If you want more of that, vote for Trump’s friends. Otherwise, get out and vote to send Washington a message: fear doesn’t live here anymore.
Twitter was not impressed by Trump’s fear-mongering. Read some of their comments below:
