Charlottesville mayor on Trump: 'Look at the campaign he ran'

Source: CNN

Charlottesville Democratic mayor Michael Signer said Sunday that President Donald Trump had emboldened organized racists who caused the racially charged violence in his city over the weekend.

"Look at the campaign he ran," Signer said on CNN's "State of the Union."

Signer called on everyone to join together to recognize and combat racism, adding that the effort should include Trump.

1. He ran a campaign based on racism! It was his core theme, over and over again! The rallies

were all about racism.

His opening statement on day one of his campaign was racist.

9. And the crap he told them at one rally, beat them up, kick them out, something like that and he

would pay their legal fees. The guy is nothing less than a racist white nationalist, and he's proud of it. POS he is!!!

2. K&R. Also look at the way tRump got started in politics: Birtherism.

Also the "Great" in Make America Great Again has always been code for "White".

Much of what comes out of Rump's butthole-shaped lips is just thinly veiled racism, easy to spot if you're looking for it, easy to overlook if you're keen on burying your head in the sand.

5. Trumps campaign-incited violence. He owns the murder of the protester. Others are still critically

listed as injured in the hospital (heard just now on msnbc).

7. Without all the hatred

and the misfits, he never would have had a campaign. He surrounds himself with them to this day. He has them living in the WH. Bannon, Gorka etc.

8. absolutely.

Build the Wall, Secure our Borders, limit immigration from "certain" countries. It's been his most prominent theme.

11. Absolutely. Without the white nationalists TRUMP would have never even been nominated.

Without these scum, TRUMP would have been an afterthought, some silly old coot who tried to run for president like Pat Robertson all those years ago.

The white nationalists own TRUMP as much as the Russians. Strange bedfellows...

14. FYI: if you paste a link and see there's a div tag in it ...

Look for the part in the link that says:

src="https://mylinkgoeshere.xxx?maybemorestuffhere"

And get rid of ALL but the part that's after the first quotation mark, but before the first question mark or closing quotation mark ... the rest is mostly page-formatting (CSS, to be precise) code ...

15. I had just copied the embed code on Youtube

so that the video would appear here. I guess I could have edited it, but so long as people can see the video, it didn't seem to matter if there was some irrelevant code that appeared.

16. No big :) But 'embed code' sorta means 'if you're creating a web page, put this in your HTML'

For DU you only need the 'Share' link
