The #TrumpIsAWhiteSupremacist hashtag is trending again as Donald Trump goes after legal immigrants and the Statue of Liberty poem to target black and brown people.
This move comes as ICE raided a processing plant in Mississippi, arresting 680 undocumented workers, on the heels of Trump’s white supremacist supporter murdering 22 and wounding more than two dozen in an El Paso mass shooting.
Ken Cuccinelli had earlier tweaked the language contained in Emma Lazarus’s poem etched on the Statue of Liberty to defend the Trump administration’s new “public charge” policy that could deny green cards to immigrants who are seen as likely to need public services.
“Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge,” Cuccinelli said on NPR’s “Morning Edition” when asked if Lazarus’s poem, “The New Colossus,” was part of the American ethos.
Lazarus’s original poem reads, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” Source: The Hill
Trump also weighed in on CNN’s Chris Cuomo altercation with a right winger over being called Fredo. He said Cuomo shouldn’t own a gun, but was mum on his mass shooting supporter.

When you deny black people from renting in your buildings, call Mexicans “rapists,” call people “Pocahontas,” call brown immigrants “an invasion,” and say Congresswomen of color “should be sent back where they came from,” you’re a white supremacist.#TrumpIsAWhiteSupremacist

#TrumpIsAWhiteSupremacist is trending. Why? It is so obvious, and has been for so long, there would appear to be no need to re-state it again and again. #TrumpIsEvil, and his racism is just one facet of that.
