    What's this with Donald tweeting links to racist videos from a tweet put out by a UK racist party leader?

    1. Ignorance
    2. Appealing to the worst elements of his base
    3. Bigotry
    4. Some combination of the above

    Any of those are potentially valid answers.

    Noting, also, that at least one of the videos is known for certain to be fake. Trump Retweets Incendiary Anti-Muslim Videos From Controversial Group

    I tend to read Trump as a code. Since he's a documented liar, I read what he says in reverse.

    He's amazingly consistent in being a bold-faced liar, which makes deciphering him relatively easy. If Trump says something, then the opposite of what he says is most likely the truth.

    I still cannot believe Mr. Trump is President. I bet historians of the future will have a field day trying to explain how so many American voters got conned.

    Watching the news and seeing some of Trump's tweets. Scary and unbelievable - how did this infantile person become the most powerful person in the world?

    Nobody really knows. It's a quirk of US presidential elections. They let a small number of people choose the candidates in the primaries and then let an electoral collage choose the president. The popular vote has an influence on the electoral college but not a proportional one. Had it been based on the proportion of people voting for Donald and Mike then they would not have won because they were around three million votes below the tally for their opponent. How Donald managed to be selected as Republican candidate after saying and doing what he did is astounding. It does not speak well of the primary voters that they voted for him after all the immoral and crazy things he did and said.

    People outside USA understand exactly what he is doing.

    Far-right hatemongers cheer Trump's Twitter endorsement
    One striking feature of the way the hate-filled message normalized by Trump spread like wildfire through the internet was how many people were prepared to put their real names beside extremist opinions rather than hiding behind internet handles.

    Trump is expert at making KKK and Nazis, a significant part of his base, happy people, whether with statements after Charlottesville, statements about NFL players taking knee, or retweeting racist far right video.

    Donald Trump was spot-on when he retweeted those videos showing the barbarity of Muslims. Christianity ought to reign supreme in Europe, as it has done throughout most of its history. Muslims therefore have no business immigrating to European nations, breeding like rabbits and demographically displacing Christians, and being a major source of terrorism in the West.

    By the way, for you to call those tweets “racist” is extremely misinformed. Maybe aren’t aware of this, but Islam is a religion and not a race. Muslims can come from any ethnic group. For example, Albania is a white European nation, and they are Islamic due to conversions which took place during the Ottoman Empire era.

    Fascinating, "they let"? The Constitution be upheld?

    And who was the alternative "quirky" pick? The "moral" and "honorable" Hill and Bill team machine?
    lol

    Hard work...

    Speaking of "infantile" ~ the government has FED the "career" politicians for years.
    Speaking of "Trump" ~ He has FED his own family without being a burden on the public's tax dollars.

    1 Tim 5
    [8] But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

    During Trump's Campaign said he would not accept President Salary, however BY LAW, his has to accept Presidential Compensation. However where one obstacle arises, Trump takes another course to absolve.

    President Trump has chosen to donate his salary for the first quarter of the year
    to the National Park Service.

    President Trump has chosen to donate his salary for the second quarter of the year
    to the Department of Education.

    President Trump has chosen to donate his salary for the third quarter of the year
    to the Department of Health and Human Services with special attention to addictions.

    God Bless Trump for his hard work and generosity.

    God Bless,

    The UK has more than enough racism yet they haven't appointed a King or Queen who is overtly racist like Donald is as President. But I suppose you're thinking of the source of Donald's tweet links. From what I've seen & heard the dark haired dutch lad was not a Muslim and the blond dutch lad on crutches asked that the video not be spread around so so much for Donald's respect for the victim.

    As President, where are your quotes of the President speaking AS a RACIST?

    A video is on the web, and the lad does not want the video to be "spread around so so much" ? Exactly HOW MUCH, does he want it "spread around"?

    Victims ARE regularly highlighted in the NEWS. Was the kid on crutches assaulted or not? And do you object to that or not? And does speaking about it, make you a racist or not? And have you interview the dark haired lad, to know his religious beliefs, or why that it matters, if he was the perpetrator in the assault?

    God Bless,
