If Trump continues with his current campaign strategy, the only people voting for him in November will be dead Confederate soldiers. On Friday, while COVID-19 continued to cause a spike in related deaths, the unemployment rate reaches its worst levels since the Great Depression, and civil unrest rages across the country, the president reverted back to his old, protective stance…for Confederate generals.
In recent polls, close to half of all Americans and more than two-thirds of black Americans support changing the names of military bases to end the consecration of slaveholders and those who fought to continue the practice of owning human beings as property because of the color of their skin. Of course, only a very small percentage of black Americans support Trump, so he doesn’t care, anyway.
Another group in support of changing the names of military bases is the military themselves. In an interview with Chris Wallace last Sunday, Trump said he “doesn’t care” what the military thinks of it, which is probably not going to help the president much in November. After all, dead Confederates don’t vote, but military members do.
Trump needs to rekindle that old racist magic if he’s going to get any votes at all, and the majority will come from the South, where traitors to the country fought to preserve the rights of white people and diminish the rights of black Americans. How that will affect Trump in November against Joe Biden remains to be seen, but it likely won’t bring about any positives.
Twitter reminded Trump what his job is in quick fashion. Read some of their comments below:
