Twitter rages after Donald Trump went racist by trying to imitate the Chinese president’s accent while he melted down during his unhinged national emergency declaration in the Rose Garden.
During the presser, Trump appeared to mimic Chinese President Xi Jinping while talking about illegal drug use in America. He claimed President Xi told him that China executes drug dealers.
“Their criminal list, a drug dealer gets a thing called the death penalty,”
Trump said. “Our criminal list, a drug dealer gets a thing called, ‘how about a fine.’”
“When I asked President Xi — I said, ‘Do you have a drug problem?’ No, no, no,” Trump said. He asked why they didn’t have a “drug problem.” He said Xi responded, ‘Death penalty. We give death penalty to people that sell drugs. End of problem.'”
Yeah, Baby Rodrigo Duterte wants the death penalty for drug dealers. Let that sink in.
Reaction on Twitter:
I trust the journalists and Republicans continuing to hound @IlhanMN after she's apologised, shown she's willing to learn and reached out to do better will be RIGHT ON Trump for his racist imitation of the Chinese president. pic.twitter.com/xnGGBlXr0u— Danielle Blake/Nancy Pelosi Stan Account (@abradacabla) February 15, 2019
