Donald Trump has completely lost his mind and is now making even more outrageous claims than ever before.
Last night, Trump did an exclusive interview with Sean Hannity, in which he deflected all blame regarding the current racism issues the country is facing onto the Democrats. Refusing to acknowledge the fact that he had one of the most racist, divisive presidential campaigns and agendas that modern America has ever seen, Trump pointed his orange little fingers at – wait for it – the Democrats!
Hannity asked Trump, who had recently defended white nationalists in Charlottesville:
[Democrats] will say ‘Oh, [Republican] policies are racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic.’ Their policies haven’t helped the minority communities in America. Is there a way from the federal government’s perspective that you can bring economic opportunity? And safety?”
Trump did what he always does – refused to accept responsibility for being a bigot and placed the blame elsewhere:
The Democrats have ruled the inner cities for 100 years. This is their rule…The Democrats have truly ruled.”
Trump also added:
We’re doing a good job. [HUD Secretary] Ben Carson is doing a great job at HUD. He’s got great heart…But the Democrats ruled the inner cities. And when I say, ‘What do you have to lose?’ It’s so bad that, really, the Republicans should be starting to do very well. But we’re doing a good job and we’re stopping a lot of the crime.”
Is Trump still trying to win the black vote? That ship sailed far away a long, long time ago! Then again, what does he have to lose? Only 6% of African American voters think that Trump is fit for office, so Trump probably figures it can’t get any worse.
Blaming the Democratic Party for race issues – especially when Republicans have completely ignored issues like police brutality and movements like Black Lives Matter – is ridiculous. You can watch this disgusting interview below:
