Given that 49% of Democrats think that Trump voters are racist and everyone from the news media to Democratic presidential contenders continues to claim that Trump said that white supremacists at Charlottesville were “very fine people,” despite the fact that he clearly said exactly the opposite, it is inevitable that some people will falsely accuse Donald Trump of being a racist. Additionally, since we live in a world where the liberal definition of “white supremacy” seems to be, “A white person who doesn’t vote Democrat,” the accusations of racism from the Left are just par for the course.
So, how does a man who took a picture in 1986 with Muhammad Ali and Rosa Parks when he won an Ellis Island award that is supposed to, “embody the spirit of America in their celebration of patriotism, tolerance, brotherhood, and diversity,” clear his name? How does a man who has donated to (Al) Sharpton’s original organization, the National Youth Movement, cut the ribbon at the 2002 conventions of Sharpton’s current group, the National Action Network, and gave rent-free space to Jessie Jackson’s Rainbow/PUSH Coalition counter the irrational allegations that he’s a white supremacist?
Sure, more than a million black Americans voted for Trump in 2016, he makes frequent efforts to appeal to black Americans (you could ask A$AP Rocky about that) and he takes great pride in having done a better job of helping black Americans than Obama did, but how can he somehow prove that he doesn’t support people and groups he has never supported in the first place? One simple way to do that would seem to be to disavow them and publicly say he doesn’t support their cause.
So, here are 17 times Donald Trump has condemned racism, hate, white supremacism, the Alt-Right, the KKK or David Duke.
1) “I am concerned about the rise of any group of hate. I don’t like it, any group of hate, whether its white supremacy, whether it’s any other kind of supremacy, whether its antifa… I am very concerned about it and I’ll do something about it.” – Business Insider, 8/7/2019
2) “The shooter in El Paso posted a manifesto online consumed by racist hate. 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. We have asked the FBI to identify all further resources they need to investigate and disrupt hate crimes and domestic terrorism – whatever they need.” – National Review, 8/06/2019
3) “The riots in Charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division,” Trump posted on Twitter Saturday morning. “We must come together as a nation. I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence. Peace to ALL Americans!” – USA Today, 8/11/2018
