Donald Trump is running for president as a flat-out racist - 2019-03-20
We are about to learn something important about this country. Donald Trump is running for re-election as a flat-out racist and bigot, and we are going to discover who we are as a nation by how many of our fellow citizens vote for him in 2020. Whether Trump wins or not, I'm afraid it's going to be a bitter, nasty lesson.
It's hardly worth discussing anymore whether Trump is a racist. After three years of tweeting and screeching his anti-black, anti-woman, anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant, anti-gay, anti-trans, anti-anyone-who-isn't-a-white-male-just-like-him, Trump's wide ranging prejudice is a settled issue. He doesn't even pretend otherwise. It's the centerpiece of his campaign, practically the whole reason he's running for a second term.
