Trump’s Racist Words

Posted on January 22, 2018


President Trump attacked African and Haiti nationals as undesirable to come to the United States recently. He has halted several Muslim nations, by executive order, from permitting their citizens to enter the United States.

This nation was built by the “tired and poor” and moved forward by “huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” Those of us who understand this must oppose the president’s attacks on people seeking freedom and citizenship in this nation.

President Richard M. Nixon said, “I am not a crook.” President Donald Trump says, “I am not a racist.”

It seems that when faced with the obvious, those guilty are the most vocal to deny their culpability and quickest to respond defensively.

Paraphrasing one of Shakespeare’s characters, I think you protest too much, Mr. Trump. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “When you do speak so loudly, I can’t hear what you’re saying.”

These words have never been more truer than today.
