From day one, Donald Trump has always had a dark cloud over his head when there is racial tension. The New Yorker was the first birth demanding for President Obama’s birth certificate. To start his campaign he stated, “They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some (I guess) are good people”, referring to Mexico and the people they “send”.

The only time Donald Trump has ever unified people is sitting down to watch the Apprentice. There are many people that believe Donald Trump thrives off racial tension and that he himself is a bigot. The best argument for this is the civil rights lawsuit brought by him and his father in 1973 for violating the Fair Housing Act. The result is that the Trump organization has settled. Fred Trump, Donald Trump’s father, was also arrested in 1927 and for allegedly not dispersing from a KKK March in New York.

During Trump’s campaign, he was likened to George Wallace by The Rachel Maddow Show. The way he rallied a crowd spouting hatred and harm to protesters. There have been scary and obscene ads made to that fact. In the 1960’s, George Wallace coined the phrase “Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever”, basically to say today’s rule of law will live on forever. That law being Jim Crow. Trump was coming out of his teens in those days so I’m sure he’s familiar. Trump’s campaign

Trump was coming out of his teens in those days so I’m sure he’s familiar. Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again” also for most draws on the strings of racism. We can assume he’s talking to the working class with this catch phrase since he talks so much about growth being slowed by regulation. With that assumption, economic wealth was great for the majority of the country in the 60’s. During the 60’s the US was 85-90% white and minorities had very rough lives. Candidates usually try to bring people together, this slogan does not

With all that in perspective, I believe it is fair to question Donald Trump’s loyalty to America’s oath to inclusion and diversity. It’s fair to say Donald Trump empowers members of the alt right that believe in white nationalist ideology.

During the campaign, Trump struggled to denounce David Duke’s endorsement claiming he didn’t know anything about David Duke or white nationalism. When in the early 2000’s Trump left the reform party on the basis that “now we got people like David Duke in the party” and he no longer could be aligned with a party that let in a man like him.

Trump, when pushed for 8 hours, then denounced him sounding like he was under duress. Trump has shown us through Putin that people that have said nice things about him hold a close place in his heart. It’s hard to find a member of the American KKK or Nazi hate groups without a “Make America Great Again” hat.
