Trump Says Racism is Bad After Repeatedly Being Racist
“No one should be judged by their race or their color and the color of their skin.”
Donald Trump recently stopped at the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s “Road to the Majority” event in Washington D.C. to speak to conservative evangelicals, a crowd he won in the primaries. There’s nothing particularly noteworthy about a GOP candidate trying to shore up the very people who are most likely to vote for him, but then Trump said this in the middle of a speech about the importance of religious freedom:
“Freedom of any kind means no one should be judged by their race or their color and the color of their skin, should not be judged that way. And right now we have a very divided nation. We’re going to bring our nation together.”
LOL for real tho?
That’s quite the change of tone there, bruh. Like, you do know that Twitter and the Internet are forever, right? Oh no? Let’s check those receipts.
Remember the time you said that most crimes are committed by blacks and Latinos? You ‘member!
Sadly, the overwhelming amount of violent crime in our major cities is committed by blacks and hispanics-a tough subject-must be discussed.

Seems pretty judgmental…
Or how about that one time you tweeted that Mexicans are “killing us at the border…”
I love the Mexican people, but Mexico is not our friend. They're killing us at the border and they're killing us on jobs and trade. FIGHT!

But data seems to show that the violence is really the other way around.
You do know that the word “thug” has some serious racial connotations, right?
The protesters in New Mexico were thugs who were flying the Mexican flag. The rally inside was big and beautiful, but outside, criminals!

Sounds pretty race-baity, dude.
You even called Jeff Sessions…THIS Jeff Sessions “a great guy!”

But the most telling of your real thoughts was when you deleted a tweet attacking Jeb Bush’s wife for being Mexican.

With so much evidence of race-baiting found on your Twitter timeline, maybe Hillary Clinton is right. You should “delete your account.”
