Trump Attacks Peaceful Anti-Racism Boston Protesters As ‘Anti-Police Agitators’

Ignoring the fact that Saturday’s anti-racism gathering of 20,000 people was peaceful and had no major reports of violence, Donald Trump took to Twitter to attack the protesters, calling them “anti-police agitators.”

Instead of using the moment to calm the flames he’s created over the past week, Trump decided to throw gasoline on them.

The president’s tweet:

To make matters even worse, Trump used an earlier Twitter post to heap praise on his former chief strategist, white nationalist Steve Bannon:

Trump’s tweets come after Bannon was forced out of the administration following the president’s troubling response to the events in Charlottesville last weekend, in which Trump blamed “many sides” for the violence.

“I think there is blame on both sides,” he said last week at Trump Tower.  “You had a group on one side that was bad. You had a group on the other side that was also very violent. Nobody wants to say that. I’ll say it right now.”

After being caught up in a firestorm of criticism for his defense of the alt-right Nazis in Charlottesville, the president decided it was probably a good time to cut ties with Bannon, who himself is an alt-right white nationalist.

If there was a moment for Trump to reverse the narrative that he is a white supremacist sympathizer, today would have been it.

But instead of aligning himself with the tens of thousands of peaceful demonstrators in Boston – people who spoke out strongly against the hatred we saw in Charlottesville, Virginia just last weekend – he decided to lie about the protesters and talk about how great Steve Bannon is.
