It is good to hear this from Trump
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/tru...otings-remarks

President Trump called Monday for reforms at the intersection of mental health and gun laws -- including so-called "red flag laws" to take guns from those deemed a public risk -- in the wake of back-to-back mass shootings over the weekend that left at least 30 people dead.

“Our nation is overcome with shock, horror and sorrow,” Trump said, in solemn remarks from the White House. “We are outraged and sickened by this monstrous evil.”

In unequivocal terms, the president also condemned white supremacy, responding to reports that the shooter in El Paso wrote a racist manifesto.

"In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy,” Trump said, standing beside Vice President Pence. “These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hatred has no place in America.”

“The shooter in El Paso posted a manifesto online consumed by racist hate,” Trump said. “In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America. Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart and devours the soul.”

If only he took his own advice. To bad that he didn't write that.

And it only took 2 1/2 years to do this. But we all know it was empty as he knows he is condemning many of his own supporters.

His next 'inspiration' will coincide with his next toilet twitter session. Of course those aren't scripted but what he says comes right out of his arse.

Trump is not a racist and neither are most of us who voted for him. I can't say the same for most leftists who hate trump voters.

I don't care who the president is, they should not receive "credit" for simply "not supporting white supremacy." Not supporting white supremacy SHOULD be right up there with "able to breathe" as a bare-minimum given for being the POTUS.

That's a huge blanket statement. We can set aside Trump because I think there are plenty of quotes and actions that could support either argument (he is racist or he is not racist) but of course a lot of his followers are racist. "Send her back!" Come on. Be real.
Also, I'd say the hatred coming from some people on the left towards people on the right is pretty equal to the hatred coming from some people on the right towards people on the left. The extremists wash each other out.

White supremacy is bad


But let’s not kid ourselves. Leftists highly exaggerate the prevalence of white supremacy and also have a tendency to call any non liberal a “racist”

The left forces his hand. If he didn't say he opposes white supremacy they'd say because he didn't then he must be one or approves of it. The lefty, liberals are so predictable. Damned if he does and damned if he doesn't.
