There is no denying now what millions of people have known for a long time, trump is a hate filled racist.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/jan/12/unkind-divisive-elitist-international-outcry-over-trumps-shithole-countries-remark

Donald Trump has been branded a shocking and shameful racist after it was credibly reported he had described African nations, as well as Haiti and El Salvador as “shitholes” and questioned why so many of their citizens had ever been permitted to enter America.

US diplomats around the world were summoned for formal reproach, amid global shock that such crude remarks could ever be made in a semi-public meeting by the president of America.

In a strongly-worded statement, the UN said it was impossible to describe his remarks as anything other than racist, while the Vatican decried Trump’s words as “particularly harsh and offensive”.

The 55-nation African Union said the remarks were “clearly racist”.

Things in places like El Salvador which trump has so hatefully condemned are as bad as they are in large part because of years of US policy.

https://www.thenation.com/article/time-for-a-us-apology-to-el-salvador/

Over the ages, the United States has routinely intervened in Latin America, overthrowing left-wing governments and propping up right-wing dictators. President Obama pressed a reset button of sorts last month when he traveled to Cuba and Argentina. Now it’s time for him to visit a Latin America country that is geographically smallest but where Washington’s footprint is large and the stain of intervention perhaps greatest—El Salvador.

That failure to speak out looks benign in contrast to the active role Washington played in the “dirty war” in El Salvador in the 1980s, which pitted a right-wing government against Marxist guerrillas. The United States sent military advisers to help the Salvadoran military fight its dirty war, as well as hundreds of millions of dollars in economic and military aid.

In Argentina, the security forces killed some 30,000 civilians. In El Salvador, more than 75,000 lost their lives during the civil war, which lasted from 1980 until the 1992 peace agreement. The guerrillas committed atrocities, but the United Nations Truth Commission, established as part of the accord, found that more than 85 percent of the killings, kidnappings, and torture had been the work of government forces, which included paramilitaries, death squads, and army units trained by the United States.

trump is so stupid he doesn’t even have a clue why so many people from Latin America are trying to get to the US. Decades of US intervention in Central and South America has led to social collapse and created conditions so bad that many including children are fleeing for their lives. Many of the young people from the region now in America did not come to the US for jobs, they did so because they had justified fear they would be murdered if they stayed at home.

The US spent billions of dollars training people to murder other people across Latin America, instead of apologizing for these crimes against humanity trump instead calls some of the areas most deeply affected “shitholes” and one of his “solutions” is to build a massive wall to stop people who are now fleeing for their from conditions the US played a central role in creating.

This is a smear on all America to have a president who is so ignorant and so disgusting in his openly stated views. It is an even deeper smear on the entire republican party who he represents in the White House. Anyone heading to the polls this fall truly needs to keep in mind just what the republican party now represents, if the republican controlled US Congress does nothing to remove this threat to peace and stability in not just the US but the world then they are in fact in support of his hatred for certain peoples who he obviously doesn’t think even have a right to exist on Earth.

I also think anyone who supports turning the entire US/Mexico border into a fortified zone is deeply racist in their views.

Not only should trump be kicked from office for this and most everything else he’s done and said, the US needs to totally rethink its policy towards its Southern neighbours and genuinely work to help heal the very deep wounds it did so much to create in many places.

Like El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Columbia, Chile, Argentina and other places across Latin America.

Here’s a list of graduates from the US based School of the America’s, who went on to in many cases engage in mass murder back home.

http://www.soaw.org/about-the-soawhinsec/soawhinsec-grads/notorious-grads

Only a true idiot and racist would look at any of the people being condemned so completely by trump and think they represent a threat to the US when some of them are in the US only because of all the violence and chaos that has been exported to their homes directly from the US.

trump didn’t even attempt to disguise what a racist demagogue he is.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/trump-immigration-africans-reaction-1.4484323

Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who’d fled to the U.S. after disasters hit their homes in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal, according to the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to publicly describe the discussion.

When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, Durbin said Trump replied: “We don’t need more Haitians.”’

“He said ‘Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country. Why don’t we get more people from Norway?” Durbin told reporters in Chicago.

He doesn’t want any more black or Latins in the US, he’s the definition of racist.

President tRUMP now denies he said “shithole countries” in Africa and elsewhere, but all the witnesses to what he said are highly creditable individuals.  Mental health experts say that denial is among the most common defense mechanism and denial is how a person defends their superior sense of self.

Unfortunately, denial is how America defends itself as superior. to those “shithole countries” developing countries.

And yes tRUMP appears to be unifying Americans in their denial if nothing else.  The more racist he sounds the more his base denies his racism.  But far worse than that most of his opponents look away from their own racism as they brand him a racist.  Long story short, we remain a unified country of denial.  Shame on us.

America is much better than this, the majority of Americans are not reflected in the words and actions of trump, he reflects the worst aspects of the lunatic fringe in America and ruthless shits who control the Kremlin.

He’s the KKK and Putin “president”... which means he’s not really a US president at all and as long as the republicans keep supporting him they aren’t a real US political party.

Why vote for people who represent nothing that the US stands for.

Not only does trump deserve to be kicked out of office, all republicans who support this walking talking abomination need to be voted out of office.

The US republican party sure has sunk a very long way.

It was the real Republicans who gave the US laws that abolished slavery, made freed slaves citizens of the US and then gave them the vote.

http://www.pbs.org/tpt/constitution-usa-peter-sagal/equality/#.Wlv9TTdG3cc

In the wake of the Civil War, three amendments were added to the U.S. Constitution. The Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery (1865), the Fourteenth Amendment made freed slaves citizens of the United States and the state wherein they lived (1868), and the Fifteenth Amendment gave the vote to men of any race (1870). During this time, the nation struggled with what role four million newly freed slaves would assume in American life. With the triumph of the Radical Republicans in Congress, the Constitution was amended to grant full citizenship to former slaves and promise them equal treatment under the law, a promise that took more than a century to fulfill.

Now if he could the current US republican “president” would strip people of all rights if they are a color he doesn’t like.

Don’t put so much emphasis on Donny. The focus should be on the Repubs who enable him, put up with him, etc. It’s not American politics that has become a disgrace, it’s the Conservative Republicans who have.

The Democrats are busy rebuilding a party that isn’t thoroughly corrupted by money and outside influences like the Russian government, it is the republicans who need to be ashamed of what they’ve allowed their party to become.

They spend so much time on denying reality on every level including science with evolution and climate change, on economics still trying to cram “trickle down” economics down the throats of Americans and more. The reason they now have a republican racist idiot in the White House is because the entire republican party has allowed itself to be taken over by the lunatic fringe.

It’s what happens when you base your entire “reality” on utter nonsense.

This is what the Democrat party is now doing.

https://www.justicedemocrats.com/

By aligning with Wall Street over working men and women, the Democratic Party has allowed Republicans to take over most state legislatures, most governorships, Congress, and the presidency.

The solution is not unity with the corporate-backed Democrats. The solution is to challenge them and replace every single one of them with people who will fight for voters, not donors. It’s time to rebuild the Democratic Party from scratch to be a party that fights for a clear progressive vision.

The republican party is still backing their billionaire racist, traitor, idiot in the White House…

True, but members of what we have been calling the lunatic fringe sit in the White House and are in the majority in Congress, and, guess what? mainstream American voters put them there. The patients have taken over the asylum. When the lunatics represent the majority, can they still be considered a fringe group?

When they go against all the principles the US was founded on I think it still means that people who are trying to impose the latest version of tyranny in the US are a lunatic fringe group.

And as Stanley Milgram showed in his experiments, most people will follow an authority they have accepted as being responsible for their actions no matter what that authority does. That doesn’t mean that most people are happy or really believe in what trump and the idiotic republicans are now doing in the US at all levels. It means that millions of people have assumed an agentic state and will follow authority until it is replaced by something else.

This is why instead of having sane policies to run the nation on the republicans are instead attacking the democratic institutions that provide a government that represented the interests of the people.

republicans take huge amounts of money from wealthy donors then work exclusively in the interests of the people who “donated” to them, they are effectively selling their office to the highest bidder.

And we get a billionaires tax relief bill, trump for president and deep, deep cuts to social programs.

Half of Puerto Rico is still without power more than 3 months after the disastrous hurricane season, if this was any other place in the US with a largely white population they would have power back in days not months.

http://time.com/5082225/hurricane-maria-puerto-rico-no-power/

The revelation that more than 660,000 power customers across Puerto Rico still lack electricity more than three months after Hurricane Maria has sparked outrage, surprise and resignation among some islanders who accuse officials of mismanaging their response to the Category 4 storm.

It’s the first time the government of the U.S. territory has provided that statistic, which was released as authorities warned that a lot of work remains and that crews were still finding unexpected damage after Maria hit on Sept. 20 with winds of up to 154 mph, knocking power out to the entire island. Officials said 55 percent of Puerto Rico’s nearly 1.5 million customers have power.

About a quarter of Puerto Rico will still not have power by May, just another huge finger from trump to Latin Americans. As if that was needed after the way he treated all of Puerto Rico in the immediate aftermath of one of the worst disasters there ever.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/12/politics/trump-puerto-rico-texas-florida/index.html

President Donald Trump said Thursday morning that the United States cannot aid hurricane ravaged Puerto Rico “forever,” offering the island territory a dramatically different level of commitment than he extended Texas and Florida after hurricanes rocked each of those states.

Thursday’s Twitter messages from Trump compound previous statements saying the US territory has not done enough for itself during clean-up efforts and Twitter fights with Puerto Rican officials, such as San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz‏.

Check trump’s closet and you will find a white robe with hood, what a racist piece of crap…
