Late last night, Palmer Report sounded the alarm about the Trump regime abruptly stranding Bahamian hurricane refugees, as they tried to come to the United States. It was clear that Donald Trump was once again trying to screw over would-be refugees based on skin color. Now Trump is using his words to leave no doubt about where he stands on the matter.
In the White House driveway just now, Donald Trump stated this to the television cameras: “I don’t want to allow people that weren’t supposed to be in the Bahamas to come into the United States, including some very bad people, and some very bad gang members and some very, very bad drug dealers.”
Oh bullshit. Trump can pretend all he wants that the supposed “gang members” and “drug dealers” he’s referring to weren’t supposed to be in the Bahamas to begin with. We all know that what he’s doing here is accusing the people of the Bahamas of being gang members and drug dealers. Just as he referred to Mexican immigrants as rapists and drug dealers in 2016.
Donald Trump said on Twitter last week that he would seek to help the hurricane victims in the Bahamas. Instead, he’s once again putting his white supremacist xenophobia on display, in particularly psychotic fashion. Anyone who votes for this guy in 2020 is just as much of a filthy dirty racist as he is.
