Trump accuses Pelosi of 'racist statement' for saying MAGA means 'make America white again'

Source: The Hill


BY CHRIS MILLS RODRIGO - 07/15/19 02:03 PM EDT

President Trump on Monday hit Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for saying that his slogan of "Make America Great Again, or MAGA, would more accurately be described as "make America white again."

"Speaker Pelosi said 'Make America White Again,' that's a very racist statement," Trump told reporters at Monday's White House event celebrating American manufacturing.

It was unclear if Trump, currently taking criticism for telling multiple congresswomen of color to "go back" to where they came from, understood the context in which Pelosi had made the comment.

It appeared that Trump may have misheard a reporter's question and suggested Pelosi herself was saying she wanted to "make America white again," though the Speaker meant the remark as itself an accusation of racism.

1. Now this is the song from the white racists. They are too.

 

Rational reasonable people that are racist loves to say, they do too. Just like men saying women rape, too. Like 1.2% of the rapes after all.

3. Typical "thehill" bs

Bullshit. Trump obviously is suggesting racism against whites which is also bullshit.

America has a racist president and it has been obvious for a long time.

10. Straight out of the white nationalist playbook

Trump is a white nationalist tyrant who not only spews over-the-top racist remarks targeting women of color, he also turns around and denies he's a racist--then plays the victim by accusing those who call him out on his racism as if they were the bigots instead of him.
