By the title of thread I thought it was going to be about the media because they certainly try to be divisive and cry racism even when it isnít there for profit.

Over decades in business, entertainment and now politics, Mr. Trump has approached Americaís racial, ethnic and religious divisions opportunistically, not as the nationís wounds to be healed but as openings to achieve his goals, whether they be ratings, fame, money or power, without regard for adverse consequences.

The race baiters are liberals. You know just like you did with this topic! It doesn't matter what race or gender you are if you don't like our country then move to another country of your liking perhaps the one of your ancestors would do. There is nothing racist about that statement whatsoever!

He didn't tell them to go back to their "countries" so your stupid gotcha doesn't work.

And Tlaib called for Trump to be deported FOUR YEARS AGO!

And why is there supposed to be something wrong with that?

Cummings takes the side of foreigners over Americans, and we're not supposed to criticize him?

Apparently part of being "great again" is to tear children from their mother's arms and put people in cages without enough food and clean drinking water. If you have the wrong skin color you will end up being sacrificed on the alter of Trump's "greatness."




Much of Mr. Cummings district is worse than anything you'll find at the border.......

So he doesn't have much room to criticize.
