Pundits of the GOP establishment and Leftist media are upset over Pres Trump’s response to the violence committed in Charlottesville, VA between racists clashing. Apparently his tweet…
We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 12, 2017
… and statement made during a signing ceremony…
… weren’t enough because he did not condemn the White Nationalists, KKK and ring leader David Duke. Trump stated in 2016 he didn’t know anything about Duke with regards to his political affiliations and never met him. One thing is clear, in 2000, appearing on the Today Show with Matt Lauer, Trump acknowledged Duke is a bigot and racist:
Lauer: What do you see as the biggest problem with the Reform Party right now?
Trump: Well you’ve got David Duke just joined, a bigot, a racist, a problem. I mean this is not exactly the people you want in your party.
Both sides won’t mention this exchange while complaining about Trump, and of course they leave out the BLM, Antifa, and radical Leftists who participated in the violence! They also seem to have a short memory over how obama welcomed RACIST Al Sharpton, BLM and other race hustlers, who were behind many racially driven riots, into the White House on numerous occasions! Clearly anything Trump does or says will never be enough for the establishment GOP and Leftist MSM.
