Has Trump Created A “Racist Vile Climate?”

Former Ohio State Sen. Nina Turner (D) believes that President Trump is to blame for the “racist vile climate” in the “DNA of America.”

When speaking about the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh, Turner stated, “Words create worlds. And not the president is responsible for any individuals reactions or actions, but he is responsible for the type of climate that he’s created since he started running for president to this very point.”

She continued, “We are looking for decency, and that’s what this president fails to exhibit time and time again. He’ll say one thing when it’s written for him by his staff. But when he gets into these rallies, his true nature comes out. So he does have to take some responsibility for the racist, vile climate we find ourselves in, which Jake is not new. And you hear me say this all the time, this is in the DNA of America, so I’m surprised that people are surprised. What is happening is that what is in our root as a country is bubbling up now, and that’s what people are surprised by. Every generation we have to be fighting to eradicate racism and bigotry.”

    Hell no. I blame it on the Democraps who keep preaching about something that hasn’t happened or isn’t true. Maxine the Mouth hasn’t helped the situation either. And Al “the phony rape” Sharpton should shut the hell up. He hasn’t helped Squat since Tawana. If you’re real young google Tawana Brawley.

  • No, the hate is an individual attitude/belief.

  • kjsiii

    Let’s see — Hillary called everyone who voted for Trump a “deplorable”; she also said that you can’t be civil to Republicans. Maxine Waters said that her followers should harass the Republicans everywhere. Eric Holder said that he did not believe in the maxim, “when they go low, we go high”; instead, said the former US Attorney General, “when they go low we should kick them.” Sounds to me like the hatred is boiling up from the liberal Democrats. When something explodes, they should look at themselves for the incendiary messages of hate and calls to fight.

      Deplorabls referrred to all Trump supporters including the blacks, browns and others who seem to be voting for him against their own best interests. This would include Ben Carson and all of the other members of his cabinet with the possible exception of General Mattis, who never showed any discrimination against any group while he was on active duty. Those who do never go over about Lt. Col. or the equivalent.

        hey dumb dumb the deplorables are the ones in the democratic party that back open borders and no law and order. hope your welfare check arrives on time.

            In just recent events, we have 2 GOP members of Congress who are under inditement, with no Democratic members in the same shape. In just Trumps campaign teem thare are over 10, and with friends and former employees, there are a few more. Over the years there have been more GOP officials do Federal time than there have been members of Democratic administrations. How about ‘I am not a crook”, Nixon?

          • john jones

            get mueller off that fake investigation he is spending tax payers money on and start investigating liberal democrats and you will find more crime on that side than republicans. why not start with ellison and his beating up his girl friend which liberals have swept under the rug. shut down cnn,msnbc and start giving americans the real news instead of their opinions. the justice dept. gave hillary a pass as well as bill when he molested lewinsky. what bout biden going to china and making a billion dollar deal with them to help his son,didn’t see that anywhere. fake news is really fake because they don’t cover both sides. both sides are crooks the problem you have you watch the same old liberal news channels that channel your brain to liberal communist democrats.

          Your assertion, following that of Trump, that we want open borders is totally false. We would like to see that our immigration and all of the rest of the laws be kept up to date. In 1986, Reagan was confronted with an estimated 3 million illegals is the country, and he created a path to citizenship, so that the taxpayers not only did not have to pay for the cost of deportion, but also got money from those who registered for everything that they got that gave them citizenship, up to taking the test and being sworn in as citizens. Reagan thought that Congress would get the message to change the law, but Congress never did. I live in CO, and a few years ago, we brought our state marijuana laws up to date to reflect the will of the voters, and we are now colleciting million or maybe as much as a billion in sales taxes. The costs to the taxpayers for incarceration of marijuana users and dealers has saved us taxpayers money, and other states are following suit to get the same benefit from changing laws. However, the Federal law remains unchanged, and so, since we are all Federal Taxpayers our costs have remained high when they could be reduced.
          While Trumps entire focus is on illegals from the S., and is now spending millions to deploy troops there, the estimates are that 2/3 of the illegals in the country at this time are not from the S. By just counting the number of people entering the country by air or ship on tourist or other visas and then counting the number going out every period, there seems to be a difference of over 1,000 per month more people coming in than going out. The largest number staying seem to be from Asia, and they get no official attention, and they are not targeted for ICE raids. If Reagan thought that 3 million was a big problem that could not be solved with deportation, how do you expect to deport 12 to 13 million.
          The story of how we got to that large number is way to long to give here, but it has to do with tightening our borders to the S.
          I went with my parents into Mexico at El Paso, for the first time in about 1948, when the border was really open. My grandfather bought a gallon of Rum for my aunt and uncle who lived in Albuquerque, and we had gone a block inside of the US when he remembered that he had not paid the duty, and we went back and he paid is quarter.. In the 1970’s my family and I would go to Mexico every year at Christmas for a month by car, and counting cutoms and immigration, it never took us more than about 45 minutes to cross back into Brownsville. About 10 years ago I went into Tijuana with a friend on foot, and coming back while we were standing in a line that was 2 blocks long I talked with some people in a car that were waiting to get back into the US and they told me that they had been in line for almost 20 hours – it took us 3 hours on foot to get back in. When I was in the USMC stationed in the San Diego area, other Marines and I would go to TJ and never had a line or any long wait to get back in. I cannot see any significant differece that should make it that much harder to get back in to the US today than in times past.
          If you want to talk about a totally open boarder, there is the one between the US and Canada. At any of the over 4,000 miles of this border, which crosses all of the Great Lakes except for MI, you can walk less than a mile from the official border crossing, and either walk, swim, or take a row boat across and never be noticed. Then, counting the shore lines on the Great Lakes, we have well over 12,000 miles of unprotected shore. Just in the San Diego sector of the cA coast, the US Coast Guard seizes more drugs per month than are seized all along the land border with Mexico. The fishing boats and pleasure boats, from both the US and Mexico regularly go to the small fishing ports of the other countries.
          There are small towns in the CO mountains where probably most of the permanent populations arre illegals. If there are 12-13 million illegals already in the US, that makes about 1 out of every 31 people in the US an illegal, and according to Bureau of Prisons numbers, they are very much under represented in our prison populations. so all of this talk about them being Criminals is crap. Right now, there are about 1.4 million people in the US who cannot vote because of criminal convictions in just FL, and there is no way that there could be that many illegals in FL. We have more criminals than any other western nation. The estimate of the total population of FL for 2017 is only 21 million, so the estimate of the total number of US born criminals in the US about now would be over 35 million, which is more than the 20% of the entire population of Mexico.
          Why in the hell is this such a big deal?

    B. Hussein O.,his prissy AG Eric the Holder, race hustlers Jesse and Al, and others of their disruptive Marxist persuasion are behind this. They blame DJT because he believes in a strong America for Americans rather than their demand that a guilty America be borderless as penance for past sins.

    • apzzyk

      Trump is guilty of attracting all of the people, like you, who simply do not like people who do not look like you, and then catering to them when there were other incidents. You can be a bigot on your own time. Since he was elected there has been at least a 50% increase in racially motivated crimes and other bad actions. Many of us Democrats and Liberals have been advocating for the past 40 years for realistic immigration laws and quotas, and all of these have been blocked by others with far different views. Now it is your views that are really hurting the rest of us who have been advocating for full equality for years.

      • john jones

        to apzzyk: hey bozo this nation was civil until you and your ignorant stupids elected barack obama the useless president that set this country back 100 years. democrats have been advocating for only one thing in the last 50 years and that is to put as many people on welfare ,get elected and steal as much money as they could while in office. liberal democratic backers have become ignorant and stupid.

        LOL..your hero Killary had two heros. Margret Sanger, trying to get rid of blacks, and Robert Carlyle Byrd , a recruiter for the KKK. Nice try, moron.

        ‘60’s style Facist/Socialist lefty’s and their 2018 spawn, in the tradition of their heroes Karl, Vladimir, Adolf, et.al., can’t help themselves: they just have to blame others for the reasons they resort to violence (see 1917 Russia; see 1970 University of Wisconsin bombing, etc.). And I don’t feel sorry for you just because you can’t have your own way. Now go to your room if you’re going to pout. Then again, that may not be a good idea. You might decide to plan your next Antifa temper tantrum there in order to prove to America that your quest for “full equality,” whatever that means exactly, is Just (kinda like the 70’s justice work of Bill Ayers and his wife, Bernie Dorn, upright citizens and neighbors of BO).

      • A_Nobody

        Well, well, well another ignorant moron gum flaps. Insert a brain before whining. THAT comment is the biggest bunch of BS I’ve read today. That increase of which you speak has been from you whiny children and nothing but lies. It’s funny you disregard all of the people of different races who are leaving your bastardized party because of it. We HAVE immigration laws you children ignore and all adults want are that those entering the country be vetted BEFORE entering this country, so crawl back under your rock or leave the country if you can’t follow the laws. We don’t need you either. AND BTW, I grew up blue collar Dem and know the truth of your party bastardization so spare me any more of your BS.

  • Irene Elizabeth Grooms

    I think we already had a racist set of people at the end 2016. IT SURE ISN’T TRUMP.

  • Will

    IT all comes from the top down. Trump is responsible. These racists have always been with us (some on this thread). Trump’s words and actions give them encouragement to show their ignorance. Trump has been sued (by the government) for racism since the mid 1970’s.

    • Norman Fox

      Seems President Trump is responsible for all the ills in this and every country in the world. That is according to a few who work hard at destroying the country for their benefit. They feel Mr. Trump is the bad guy while Soros is the leader and best thing that ever happened to the liberals.

    The constant BARRAGE OF ACCUSING PRESIDENT TRUMP is a ‘RACIST’ is totally a ploy of the ‘MEDIA’ to cause friction within the people, the LEFT against the RIGHT. The media constantly stirs the caldron of ‘HATE and DIVERSITY. To further make myself crystal clear on the subject, I refer you to the Presidency and administration of OBAMA, prior to 2008, America was cleaning itself of hatred, people were getting along, it appeared that ‘RACISM’ was somewhat being eliminated. OBAMA gets elected, white people voted for him believing they would give a black man to lead the country. It wasn’t very long into his presidency, he started using the ‘RACE CARD’ it then was picked up by the BLACK Citizens and the turmoil started all over again and our illustrious NEWS MEDIA has been stirring the pot of hate once again. It is the belief that the media has insisted that ‘CROOKED HILARY’ should have been elected, thereby discounting the ‘ELECTORAL COLLEGE’ that has served America for decades. Our forefathers were very wise in adopting the ‘ELECTORAL COLLEGE’, since MR. TRUMP has been officially elected as the PRESIDENT, The LEFT supported by the ‘MEDIA’ have thrown everything they can directed at PRSIDENT TRUMP who has been duly elected. All of a sudden these people want to discount the laws of our land. THE MEDIA HAS AND IS THE FAULT OF THE DISRUIPTION OF OUR POLITICS AND COUNTRY. For over 50 years, I have been stating that we must rid our colleges of professors who lean towards the COMMUNIST PARTY. some OF THEM RECEIVE STIPENDS FROM THE COMMUNIST PARTY, THE RESULT IS WHAT WE ARE WITNESSING OF THE LEFT AND MORE SO BY THE DEMOCRATS.
    In my life, I have seen the DEMOCRATS ‘USE’ PEOPLE, they excel with that and after they get the vote, they do nothing until the next election promising more to their voters, somehow they have pulled this concept for decades and have gotten away with it. NOW WE FIND THAT WE HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO IS TRYING HIS BEST TO BRING OUR COUNTRY BACK FROM THE DOLDRUMS. The DEMS can’t stand it and all they want is to run the country and return it to the ‘CORUPTION’ that is the creed of the DEMOCRATIC PARTY. We have a media who constantly talks about the assignation of the president, in all my 80 years, I have not heard talk like that as we have today! GOD BLESS AMERICA if he can, GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! As
    far as the LIBERALS, IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA THAT THEY CHECK OUT THEIR 401’S AND COMPARE IT TO THE YEAR 2008!

    Obama instigated the HATE – Race dialog. He tried at every opportunity to foment hatred between people..Hate Law Enforcement, Hate the military, Hate the whites…encourage violence and mobs to cause injuries to anyone not black. The Blacks are awakening to the truth. They have been enslaved by BO’s Democrats with welfare just as surely as slave owners.

      what horseshit

  • Arnold Kezsbom

    To accuse anyone, short of Brack Obama for the increased racial divide is just pure ignorance. Trump who was hailed by every ethnic group with enormous accolades was dubbed a racist by the Liberal Democrats and MSM the day he announced his Presidential candidacy. If ever the media and Liberal Democrat Party used smear tactics, it’s against President Trump. In the wake of Terrorist attacks in the USA and around the world, Trump wanted to halt Mid-East immigration into the USA until a proper vetting process could be established. He also exposed migration from the Southern Border for the thousands of Felons that are infiltrating the USA. No Trump just exposed the untold truth and political opponents dubbed him a racist. The racial divide started with Obama who constantly rushed to judgement on police and referred to them as racist. These comments and rush to judgement, supported by the anti semetic Eric Holder, began with Trevon Martin, and just grew in sentiment in Furgeson and Baltimore.
    Obama and his administration set this country’s racial relations back decades. Liberal ideologists will never admit to the truth, it’s easier and safer to blame Trump then to admit the first President of Color not only failed people of Color but failed the entire USA. One lesson the Obama taught the USA citizens, never elect a POTUS, who has zero experience in leadership. No Trump didn’t cause the divide, quite the opposite. Rather then condemn Soros sponsored groups like ANTIFA,BLM, MoveOn, etc… Obama condoned these racially divisive groups. But the Liberal Media in conjunction with Obama is responsible for this. The day will come when the Media and left wing liberals will admit the truth. In the meantime, Trump continues to improve the lives and opportunity for all Americans!!

  • apzzyk

    His background is racist. The first time that he and his father lost a big settlement to the Federal Government it was because of screening out minorities from their apartments. According to the settlement, they used a system where then last didet of the application indicated that the people were minorities. He has never renounced his ‘Birther’ stand against President Obama. He is the first major public elected official to create mocking names for his critics, and never even give his critics the common coutesy of an alternative explaination for his actions. Before the election he never disavowed the endorsement by racists including David Duke, and has done nothing to even try to keep racial or ethnic tensions from erupting into violence. The recent attempt to remove the refugee status from people who have been here on that from the Caribian and Central America was ruled unconstitutional by a court citing a racial animus (motive). His initial travel bans were clearly racially motivated, and the only one to reach the Supreme Court was decided on the basis that Congress had delegated this power to the President without reaching any decision on the people to be banned and his motives. All that we have heard about illegals, is those from the South, without a mention of those from other places who usually arrive by air or ship. This seems to be a solid history of racism.
