Twitter folks are discussing it as they should be. It is terribly disappointing and shocking behavior, even for Mr. Trump.

The moderation of this board has taken a HARD turn right. I don't really understand it...but all its doing is creating a right wing echo chamber.

Well I guess those who dare to voice any opinion unless they agree with everything on either side should be put out. That should put out about 100% of the adult population.

Seriously, though... he's a racist. He still won't take back the crap he said about the Central Park Five, even when though they were exonerated.


He chose Barack Obama to dog for his entire presidency with all that Birther bullcrap.

Trump is a racist. He can "have a few brown friends" and still be a racist.

Now, the thing is, I'm pretty confident that nobody who is not a fan of his is surprised that he's a racist.

You know what really surprises most people?

Is that their fellow Americans who support Trump are okay with Trump being a racist and saying and doing the things he does.

THAT is what upsets people. Hell, everyone knows Trump's a jackass.

They just keep hoping that their fellow Americans are better people than that.

And, being consistently let down when people keep defending Trump's racist crap due to extreme partisan nonsense.

I say this as someone who belongs to no party.

And who thinks Trump is as vile as they come.

It is possible not to be a fan of either "team" and still know Trump for what he is.

Not only a racist, but he called America a Crap-hole. Not exactly endearing behavior for a POTUS.

why don't you mention the fact that in the scenario he posited, he said they should also come back?

i guess it doesn't fit your narrative very well, huh?
Just because Trump said "come back" doesn’t mean that he didn’t use incendiary, hateful and divisive rhetoric to tell U.S citizens and duly elected officials of the House of Representatives to leave and “go back” to their countries in the first place. Remember their country is the USA.

Trump better get used to it. We have free speech, we don’t all have to go lock step with his hate

They are.

Please show me in the 3 tweets he posted covering this where he said "non-white".

so you're having a head-slapping meltdown because he asked why don't they go and then come back and 'show us how it is done'?

weird.

are you saying you want to pretend he didn't say they should come back afterwards?

"Many People Agree with me" is what Trump claims....

It's always nice to have a POTUS that brings out our highest and best aspirations.
