During an interview with CNN newly minted top contender for the Republican presidential nomination, Donald Trump, called Mexicans rapists.
“Some are good and some are rapists and some are killers. We don’t even know what we’re getting…The United States is like a dumping ground for the world’s problems. You’re probably going to have terrorists coming from the Middle East. Somebody said ‘Oh, we don’t have terrorists.’ They don’t even know, because they don’t know who’s coming because we have this open border.”
This is the man who is current second in the race for the Republican nomination according to the latest Fox News poll:
One would think that Republicans might have learned something after they nominated rich white guy Mitt Romney in 2012 mostly because he was rich. Donald Trump has separated himself from Romney by adding blunt racism to the 2016 campaign. Romney tried to win with classism as evidenced by his 47% remarks, but Trump isn’t about to mess around with the subtle stuff.
Donald Trump wants the votes of the white supremacists. He is going after the Dylann Roof kind of Republicans. The vile and hate filled racists, who believe that Mexicans are rapists and still question President Obama’s birth certificate. Donald Trump could potentially destroy the Republican Party.
Trump’s candidacy is revealing the ugly underbelly of racism and hate that the Republican Party is doing its best to hide. Donald Trump is a straight up racist, and his racism is why he is rocketing up the Republican primary polls.
Republicans definitely have a Donald Trump problem.
