Thinking Americans, as well as the rest of the democratic world, grimaces.
I thought about what you said. If you think the only thinking Americans are Democrats, you've got another think coming! That is always a very condescending way to make yourself look good at someone else expense.

Al Sharpton is probably gong to call him a racist. Unless, of course, Trump pays him some money as an ‘advisor’. Then the ‘racism’ magically goes away.

If he does, it is only because they mistakenly believe he is afraid to be labelled a racist, when he responds to their attacks. He does it to people whether they are white or "of color" if it is warranted by what they did first.

Trump is simply saying things that should have been said by any President 25 years ago.

But better late than never.

What he said about Al Sharpton is 100% true. He is a race hustler of the worst kind.

feud with Dems over Baltimore

A totally contrived "feud" started and perpetrated by Trump for the expressed purpose of attacking black leaders who were critical of him. You know, the usual childish, un-presidential behavior from this joke of a president.

And look at all the rubes in this thread, falling for it yet again, hook, line and sinker. They are the perfect tools for this con man.

It's not what you say, it's how you say it. Cutting remarks coming from a suspected racist are more likely to be perceived as racist. The comments from the campaigning Mr. Sanders were likely viewed as a criticism of poor Federal support for the impoverished; the comments from Trump are viewed as a racist attack on Elijah Cummings. In contrast to Mr. Trump's remarks, Mr. Cummings district, on the whole, is not doing that badly, at least according to the Baltimore Sun.

Not that it couldn't be doing better.

The left really has gone off the deep end.
Oval Sticker with black rat on it? You jest?

If Sharpton "hates whites," why did he and Trump hang out together for 25 years?

Also, if Sharpton used to "get along well" and "love Trump!" like the President claims, then Sharpton can't "hate whites" since you don't like someone of an opposite race that you're supposed to hate.
