The Best Way To Weaken Trump's Presidency? Stop Him From Harming Minorities

From: ExtraNewsfeed, by Marcus H. Johnson, freelance writer and political scientist

Study after study has shown that support for Donald Trump correlates more strongly with racial resentment than economic anxiety. Despite the wrongheaded efforts of (mostly white) journalists, pundits, and talking heads who have tried to explain away racism as a reason for Trumpís victory, the statistics continually show us that Trump supporters are more racist and sexist than the general population.

Trump Voters Will Turn On Him If He Canít Harm Minorities

There is this idea out there on the left that facts donít matter anymore and nothing can stop Trumpís white nationalism (or what journalists are still mislabeling ďpopulismĒ). I think this is a misguided view. Trump voters have openly and honestly admitted what they want: the subjugation of minorities by the state and the upholding of the social caste system that keeps white people and their racial interests at the top.

*****

Protecting Minorities Will Take A United Democratic Front In Congress

If Trump fails to harm minorities, his political position will weaken immensely. He is already one of the most unpopular President-elects in modern history, and any sort of significant drop in support could see him become one of the most unpopular Presidents in American history. An unpopular President Trump will be associated with the Republican Party at large, which could push Democrats to win a host of Governorships in 2018 and then take back the White House in 2020.

Democrats must stand together against Trump. A great example of the kind of leadership that can make Trump unpopular came from House Rep. Maxine Waters, who refuses to meet with or work with the President-elect. Waters has taken the exact opposite approach of Bernie Sanders and Tulsi Gabbard, who have indicated willingness to work with Trump and provide him with political capital. If Democrats are to weaken Trump and ultimately defeat him, they canít provide him with ďwinsĒ or a bi-partisan cloak that he can use to hide from his extremist, xenophobic politics. They must remain united in opposition to keep him from delivering on his campaign promises to harm minorities.

3. We need to have zero tolerance...

for harming any minority!

Let's just hope liberal, progressive Democrats remember who is the privileged majority! And who they just made 'leader of the free world.'
