    Name calling as a way of introducing/replying to someone at this early stage is a red flag that advertises someone's intolerance. Clearer for you?

    Amazing considering every other president would have formally addressed the nation at this point. He's busy in his bunker ****ing around on twitter and stoking the flames by calling out a largely black protest (thugs, shooting those who loot, etc). Certainly not helping the cause Donnie boy. Smart idea antagonizing groups of people who already feel their police, local/state/federal government are not out to help them.

    Just underscores the reality, he wasn't nor will he ever be presidential caliber individual.

    Could the response be any more inappropriate? In a moment we need a calming resolve we get more fuel on the fire. His base, the racists and white nationalist are celebrating the arrival of their messiah. Scary.

    Were you missing some commas in there?

    Are you suggesting his base is NOT made up, in part by racists and white nationalist? If you said it was redundant I would understand, but comma's? If you are suggesting his base is more than that suggested I agree. But no arguing many if not all racists inspired hate groups are in his corner and rejoicing. Why is Stephan Miller still in the WH?

    I am saying that the majority of his base is not racist and/or white nationalists.

    Sure.

    But coming into a thread and immediately being contentious with the majority of people whiten the thread is a red flag for, you guessed it, a dupe.

    It goes both ways.

    I absolutely agree about his base being white nationalists.

    I don't agree so much with them not being racists.

    Do you think Trump is racist?
    If you don't, then you are likely correct about his base not being racist because we look at racism differently

    If you do think he is, then I would say that his base is in the majority, racist.


    I think he's racist. I think his base is made up of far more racists than non racists. They may be super nice people and simply lack exposure to diversity but I know a ton of his supporters and all but a very few are racist.
    Not over the top and not in a mean way but they definitely have there tightly held stereotypes and fears that shade their views.

    Trump is worried that if people have the ability to mail in their votes that it gives Biden an edge.

They actually try to put people in jail for trying to get more people to exercise their constitutional rights. Much of those tactics are directed at minorities.

    The Republican party is supposed to be the party that represents "America first" and less government right? Yeah.
    Bingo. No secret that high voter turnout works in the D's favor historically. Primary reason most R's implore ministers and pastors to pray for rain on election days.

    One must wonder, why have so many R's supported effort to suppress the vote?

    Yep. He watched TV and tweeted.

    Don't forget saying he had no problem with a MAGA protest to oppose the protesting group.


    He's a ****ing moron. I had genuinely hoped that if he did find himself in the midst of a crisis, he would be a leader and really step up and own it.
    The dude is a **** show.

    I agree. There are many fine people......on BOTH sides.

    As much as Trump has sucked, especially these past few months, there's really nothing he or Hilary or Biden could do to stop the looting and rioting.

    This type of **** isn't going to fix anything. If anything it's going to do the exact opposite imo. These people couldn't care less about what happened in Minnesota. They're just using it as a free for all to steal a bunch of stuff.

    It speaks more to his lack of leadership. Antagonizing those who are out there doesn't help matters either. You're right, its impossible to stop what is going on right now but there are ways for him to present himself in a more understanding and empathetic manner which would gather people together, instead of pushing them further apart.

    That's what this president does best though. He loves divisiveness.
