The Mueller investigation will turn up all we need to draw a fact based conclusion about Trump’s ties to Russia. We don’t have to wait to know whether he colluded with White Supremacists. He’s given them offices in the White House.
When Steve Bannon was head of Breitbart News. He proudly referred to Breitbart as the “platform of the Alt-Right.” They have an even bigger platform now. Bannon whispers in Trump’s ear. Stephen Miller writes his speeches and Jeff Sessions enforces his laws. Sebastian Gorka is always willing to promote the White Nationalist agenda and defend Trump about never denouncing them.
The number of people associated with the Trump campaign and administration who have retweeted Neo-Nazi memes and White Supremacist statements even exceeds the number who had undisclosed meetings with Russia. They include both of the Trump sons and the son of Michael Flynn. They include Trump himself.
We have always known who Trump was in his twenties when he was involved in housing discrimination and sued twice by the Federal Government. We knew of his desire to see the innocent members of the Central Park 5 executed. When proven innocent, he begrudged them their settlement. We knew him when he encouraged crowds to attack black protesters and offered to pay their legal fees.
I personally do not require Trump to explicitly denounce the hate groups that were already publicly aligned with him. The Klan, Neo-Nazi’s and White Supremacists are not his enemies. They are his base. If he belatedly comes out with some words that have no sincerity. Nothing will have changed. He’ll still be exactly who we thought he was. Racist in Chief!
