Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) reacted to a Washington Post report claiming President Donald Trump referred to certain nations as “shithole countries” by saying Trump wanted to “make America white again.”
We’re leading into the anniversary of Dr. King’s birthday to honor his life and his legacy, and here we have a president who has once again said racist and despicable words about African-Americans, people of color and countries that really have helped build — their descendants, and current residents have helped build America to its greatness.
What he has said, of course, is that you’re only welcomed in America if you’re white.
It was exactly what needed to be said when he noted that when President Trump says “make America great again,” he really means ‘make America white again.’ That’s exactly what we see.”
Because we cannot allow a president in the United States to really continue with this ideology as reflected in his policies by making America white again because that is exactly what he is trying to do.”
