More Trump racism

The newest genius statement from our president should come as no surprise. The comments of racism have been coming from Donald Trump long before he became president.

Even so, these words, “Why are we letting people from all these shithole countries into the country (Haiti, El Salvador and African nations) rather than from countries like Norway,” are so shocking. How much more of this must we accept? How far into the gutter will this president take the position he holds before we say enough?

It is up to all of us to reject the reality of America that this president and his administration put forward. We are not this America. Stop being silent. We are the people who make decisions about this country.

Remind the president of this reality. Make our elected representatives speak for us. Not the president!

This is truly disgraceful, and shame on us if we don’t stop it.
