Something smells fishy here. He didn't say the visiting Germans weren't there, he just stated that "we" didn't like them!!

I'll continue to watch this story!!

Until he's deported for inciting riots!!

He went from "Lock her up" to "Send her back"!! I guess they can only remember three word sentences, displaying his mastery of propaganda!! I guess Putin and Bannon taught him that trick :roll:

Trump rules forever.
The Guardian:
The Guardian view on Donald Trump: a racist in substance and style
"...In particular, Mr Trump chafes against the idea that the US constitution is colour blind. Last November he threatened to use an executive order to scrap the guarantee of birthright citizenship in the US. In doing so, he was seeking to take a wrecking ball to the US constitution. Its 14th amendment decrees that any person born in the country is a citizen, and that states may not “abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens”, or deprive them of “life, liberty, or property without due process of law”, or deny them the “equal protection of the laws”. His long record of racism leads one to conclude that Mr Trump thinks such safeguards in the country’s legal rule book should only apply to white people. White Christians are no longer the majority in America, but they’re still driving election results.

Whether or not Mr Trump can actually entrench their rule is not the point. His racism has two purposes: one is to distract voters from his real intent; the other is to energise his voting base as he heads into the 2020 election. His core vote is hostile to sexual and racial minorities. Mr Trump’s calculation is that his political survival depends on inflaming those antagonisms to get his vote out. But there is evidence that such messages of hate do not resonate with the American public. As Mr Trump explodes rightwards, the public mood appears to have shifted sharply left. He wants his base to burn with anger. Americans hopefully will remain, as the polls indicate, thermostatic: when things get too hot, they’ll turn down the heat. .."

Article:
Calling out racism isn't political. It's our moral imperative

"The principled case for denunciation is strong. What though of the politics?" Jonathan Freedland added at The Guardian, noting, "Trump's calculation is that he can repeat in 2020 what he did in 2016, winning an electoral college majority by winning in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania — and that he can edge a victory in those states by appealing to white voters stirred by racial resentment."
...
A new USA Today poll says that 59 percent of all respondents — including roughly two-thirds of independent voters — called the president's tweets "un-American." Sixty-five percent said the tweets were racist. Similarly, a Reuters poll showed the president's approval numbers dropped 10 points with independent voters following the controversy....

In other words, Republicans may be on board with Trump, but almost nobody else is. Embracing his racism may help some politicians win GOP primaries — and, thanks to gerrymandering, more than a few congressional districts — but for just about everybody else, it's a big loser.

Trump is no different from the right wing fringes popping out all over Europe. He is no different than the likes of David Duke.
