I’m not sure that he’s completely racist, after all he does have a bromance with Kim Jong-un.

I'm betting that law will be found unconstitutional.

Who goes looking for a fight?
Are your feelings a gauge of your success, or failure?

Well, you've convinced me. Go chat with the Central Park Five or any of the black people he hit with housing discrimination and get back to me.

To play devil’s advocate, what actions and words would it take to fit the definition of racist?

Take this example of instance:

He argued in 2016 that Judge Gonzalo Curiel — who was overseeing the Trump University lawsuit — should recuse himself from the case because of his Mexican heritage and membership in a Latino lawyers association.

How is that not an act of racism/bigotry?

It's an interesting viewpoint, no? We all should just be so grateful and uplifted for Trump's influence on the country. Not.

Trump is a birther. That automatically makes him a racist. No ifs, ands or buts.

And like most Republicans, he engages in dog whistle politics. Black countries are ****holes, Baltimore is a ****hole, Mexican judges are not qualified to hear his cases because they are Mexican, the Central Park Five should have remained in jail even though they were exonerated, four non-white American congresswomen need to go back to where they came from. The proof goes on and on and on.

He continues to tell us on a regular basis that he is a racist. I believe him.

The left will never fully answer that... they will keep finding new things they want to put under the umbrella of racist when those things actually aren't racist....the second they actually define "racist" they wont get to add anything new under the umbrella.

Exactly. I have to judge Trump by his Party and his voters. I have no other metric.

And by that metric, he’s a serious racist.
