So Much for Ending American Carnage

So Much for Ending American Carnage

Walter Shapiro: “In his 2017 inaugural address, Donald Trump railed against “crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives” in the inner cities. Then Trump declared, in words that now echo with bitter irony, ‘This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.'”

“There is no way to know with absolute certainty how much of the current wave of ‘American carnage’ is directly due to Trump’s own words and his embrace of white nationalist themes. But even the Trump squad of gleeful apologists at Fox News would find it hard to argue that the president has lived up to his inaugural claim.”
