Harvard Law Prof Says Trump Tweet Proves His 'Real Agenda' Is 'White Supremacy Pure & Simple'


by Ronn Blitzer | 8:45 am, February 12th, 2019

It’s no secret that Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe isn’t a huge fan of President Donald Trump. While a lot of his past remarks about Trump have been about how to use the law to get him out of office, or legal arguments for why the Justice Department’s policy against indicting a sitting president is wrong, he’s now making a bold statement about Trump’s character and beliefs.

In a tweet Monday night, Tribe pointed to a Trump post from the weekend, saying that it was evidence of what the president’s “real agenda” is, and that it’s to “KEEP LATIN AMERICANS OUT OF THE U.S.” Trump’s tweet pointed to a Gallup poll that supposedly found that an “Open Borders” policy could lead to 42 million Latin Americans coming into the country. “This would be a disaster,” Trump said, calling for a wall on the Mexican border.

Tribe said that by calling an influx of Latin Americans a “disaster,” Trump was revealing an agenda that was “White Supremacy pure & simple.”




Tribe cited MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, borrowing Hayes’ language by stating that this tweet was a “rare moment of clarity” for the president. Hayes said Monday evening that this proves that Trump’s concern is “not criminals, not illegal immigrants, not human traffickers, not drug dealers,” but “Latin Americans.”

2. they need to look

at Stephen Miller he's a culprit too.

snip of article.


When the White House held a series of meetings last year to discuss how to deal with nations that refuse to take back their citizens whom the U.S. is trying to deport, one voice in the room was louder than all the others: Stephen Miller.

4. Trump has always been about racism.

That’s one of the main reasons people voted for him. They foolishly thought that he could get rid of the black and brown people by just sending them to other countries and then they would have their lily white country. Surprise! We still have laws here, although Trump and his Nazi Miller are trying their best to revoke the citizenship of naturalized citizens. You jaywalked once in 20 years? Out you go.

For 2020, Democrats really need to hang policies that promote racism on every Republican candidate.

5. He singled out Mexicans from the very beginning.

That should have been a big, loud, glaringly obvious tip-off right there.

And don’t forget his bemoaning why we don’t have more immigrants from Norway.

That “MAGA” thing isn’t about “making America ‘great’ again”. It’s about making America WHITE again.

8. Why would 42 million Latin Americans want to come to the USA?

9. Agree.

He wants his wall to be a big, permanent monument to racist segregation that he and his cult can use to remind themselves and the world that white supremacy is alive and well in the U.S. in the 21st Century. In that role it replaces the Confederate statues that have been disappearing.
