Trump admitted to the world that he has no political strategy and that he is saying “facts.” In other words, Trump’s a racist.
Trump admits he has no political strategy for racist attacks
Trump said, “There’s no strategy. I have no strategy. There’s zero strategy. All it is is I’m pointing out facts. The most unsafe city in the country, in our country, is Baltimore. It’s received as much money — it receives top of the line, billions of dollars. Somebody said $15 billion over a short period of time. All of this money goes there and take a look at it. I don’t have to describe it. Take a look at it. So there’s no strategy. It’s very simple. And Elijah Cummings is in charge of it. And he ought to take his oversight committee and park them in Baltimore and find out what happened to the $15 billion and a lot of other money.”

While one can be sure that Trump saying his “facts” will play well with his base of support. The reality is that Trump admitted that there is no deep political strategy behind his racist attacks, and if there is no strategy behind the racism, that must mean that Trump is making racist statements because he believes them, which means that Donald Trump is a racist.
There is no reasoning behind any of Trump’s actions. For Trump, racism isn’t a political strategy. It is a personal belief system.
Donald Trump isn’t cynical. He’s just a racist.
