Donald Trump has denied any culpability when questioned if he was helping incite further violence against the George Floyd protesters across the country with his irresponsible and frankly irrational tweets calling protestors “thugs” and for a “MAGA night” at the White House to counter protestors that have been gathering there.
MAGA. Make America great again. These are people that love our country. I have no idea if they were going to be here, I was just asking. I have no idea if they were going to be there, MAGA is make America great again.
By the way, they love African-American people, they love black people. MAGA loves black people.
I heard that MAGA wanted to be there and a lot of MAGA was going to be there and I have no idea. They love our country.” – Donald Trump
“MAGA loves black people”… indicating of course that his vision of “making America great again” does not include black people. Or gay and lesbian people also as a matter of fact.
By the way. No MAGA Trump supporters showed up at the White House to counter the protestors who gathered there last night.
“MAGA loves black people” suggests black people aren’t a part of “MAGA.” That they are outside of it. And that’s the point. https://t.co/0B23psE0sG— Jessica Huseman (@JessicaHuseman) May 30, 2020
