Trump pledged his allegiance to the Republican Party and then went off on a racist rant about how immigrants should speak English in the United States.
Trump said, “Well I think that when you get right down to it we’re a nation that speaks English, and I think that while we’re in this nation we should be speaking English. And that’s how assimilation takes, and whether people like it or not, that’s how we assimilate, and that’s how we go on to that next phase and that next stage, and that’s how people that don’t speak English, and I’m not just talking about Spanish, I’m talking about from various parts of the world, that’s how they will become more successful and do great, so I think it’s more appropriate to speak English.”
Of course, this was one of the few lines that got applause during Trump’s press conference, because it reaffirmed that Donald Trump is the candidate of white English racial speaking superiority. Multiculturalism and diversity be damned. Rich white men like Donald Trump want to run the country, and they say speak English.
The point that people are missing about the loyalty pledge is that it is more than Donald Trump pledging his loyalty to the Republican Party. The GOP also pledged their loyalty to Trump.
The Republican Party and Donald Trump are now joined at the hip. The GOP can’t disavow Trump matter what crazy, racist, or bigoted thing comes out of his mouth next. Republicans put it in writing. Donald Trump is all theirs.
This is the main reason the Republican Party has royally screwed themselves by gaining the loyalty of Donald J. Trump.
