Just six weeks after a Muslim mosque was attacked in New Zealand by a man who named Donald Trump as his inspiration for the slaughter that resulted in the deaths of 51 people, Trump was busy stoking fear of people of Islamic faith on Twitter once again. During a busy morning of “executive time” spent tweeting and retweeting, Trump decided that his third tweet of the morning should feature a Muslim threatening to kill Americans who refuse to convert to Islam.

The tweet originated from the Twitter account “Deep State Exposed,” run by the author of a book by the same name who regularly posts videos of Muslims doing things that outrage white Trump supporters. It’s a divisive and fear-mongering tactic that has led to violence and hate in the past, including the violence that killed 51 people in New Zealand.

His other retweets included several from banned platforms like InfoWars, whose video featured black voters in two groups: one protesting the president and the other supporting him and accusing the protesters of “hate.” Trump’s black supporters are few and far between, but the InfoWars video is meant to make it appear as if the racial division discussed on the Left doesn’t exist. Trump’s 12 percent approval rating among likely black voters shows that that’s a lie.

Twitter wasn’t buying into Trump’s attempts to convince them how much he’s loved by the black community, either. Even more, his attempts to stir more division and hate among American voters proved successful among his own voters, but everyone else has had enough of it. Read some of their comments below.
