Friend of Trump makes the case: Trump is no racist

5 minute read

August 8, 2019

Many Trump supporters have reached their breaking point from all the groundless accusations of racism and white supremacy being leveled at the President –- and, by extension, at THEM. Count me among that group; I’ve never seen anything like this in my life. If you are unfortunate enough to be watching CNN (maybe you’re stranded at the airport), you will think the whole world has gone freaking crazy. But it really hasn’t. We know what’s going on: Democrats desperate to retake power are caught in the grip of a mass hysteria.  They've simply shifted focus from "Russia" to "racist."

Trump is no more a white supremacist than he is a Russian agent, yet that nonsense was all we heard for three years. Breathless reporters accused Trump of conspiring with Vladimir Putin to get elected President, which would make him a traitor to his country and subject to punishments up to and including execution. When that fantasy fizzled, and the dream of impeachment faded (until they can stir it back up), it had to be replaced by something else just as baseless and far-fetched. Now, instead of being an election-stealing puppet of Putin, Trump is a card-carrying, hood-wearing, cross-burning, code-talking, immigrant-hating white supremacist. And so is anyone who supports him, or even just doesn’t sufficiently hate him.

I know Donald Trump well, and have gone on record saying I don’t believe he’s racist. In order to maintain that he is, his political enemies have had to twist his words and say he meant something other than what he did. Prime example: For the thousandth time, Trump was NOT talking about white supremacists in Charlottesville when he said there were “good people on both sides.” He was talking about the good people who disagree on whether or not to take down historic Confederate monuments. There ARE good people speaking from their hearts on both sides of that argument. When I hear people distort what Trump was talking about here, it leads me to dismiss everything else they have to say. They are helping perpetuate a lie, either deliberately or through ignorance. There are countless examples of this.

How do you prove someone is not a racist? They say it’s impossible to prove a negative, but, actually, in this case, it looks to me as though we pretty well can. There’s just no evidence that Trump is a racist, but plenty to suggest that he is not. Andrew J. Stein, a former president of the New York City Council and former president of the Manhattan Borough, says in a new piece for THE HILL that he’s known Trump since 1973 --- that's close to half a century --- and has “never seen any indication of any form of racism.”

Trump certainly doesn't always choose his words in the most sensitive way, but he has shown he cares about people of all races by what he has DONE. (Why is it that, to Democrats, paying politically-correct lip service to “oppressed” groups is so much more important than actually helping them?) According to Stein, when black or Hispanic groups have needed help, Trump was there –- typically without publicity. For example, when Stein needed to get donated materials down to Puerto Rico after a devastating hurricane in the 1980s, he called Trump, who provided them with a 727 jet. Gosh, he must have forgotten that Puerto Rico is full of “brown people.”

When it’s money that will help solve the problem, Trump will write a big check. Trump helped pay for the senior center for the largest black church in Queens. Sometimes it’s to help an individual or family, as when he helped get an African-American woman with two young kids off the street and into low-income housing, also in Queens. 

Stein points out that Trump’s criticism of Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland had nothing to do with Cummings’ race, though Cummings is doing all he can to further the false “Trump is a racist” narrative.  I'd put it this way:  Trump said Baltimore was a rat-infested mess because Baltimore is a rat-infested mess. He was speaking an obvious truth. Trump is no more racist than the rats, who don’t notice the color of the people in a homeless camp or trash-strewn sidewalk or slummy apartment complex before deciding to “infest” it. Rats are an equal opportunity infestation. They would “infest” Nancy Pelosi’s lovely San Francisco home if they could, but her household staff would quickly dispense with the rodent problem, something the City of San Francisco fails to do for the people of all colors who walk its streets.

Trump is also being called a racist for voicing/tweeting some well-deserved criticism of “the Squad,” that group of four ultra-leftist women “of color” (the meaning of which has now apparently expanded to encompass all non-whites) who now –- unbelievably, considering the hateful things they say –- are members of Congress. Does anyone actually think that if these women were white, Trump would treat them any differently? (And he didn't tell them to "go back to the countries they came from"; that is yet another misquotation.)  That’s the thing: Trump treats people the way he feels they deserve to be treated, regardless of their race. Being “of color” does not –- and should not –- make anyone immune to criticism. Only a racist would look at someone’s color to decide how to treat that person.

But back to Stein’s piece. He goes on to point out things Trump has DONE as President to help economically distressed communities, like creating empowerment zones through tax incentives and grants. Trump also pushed through the First Step Act, bipartisan legislation designed to reduce mandatory sentences for low-risk inmates with good behavior, so they can begin to rebuild their lives. Stein also mentions that unemployment for blacks and Hispanics is currently the lowest it has been in 60 years.

Trump will never please the leftists no matter what he says or does, and neither will we. It’s pathetic, though; accusations of racism are really all they have now. Simply refuse to accept that label. Laugh at their desperation. It’s going to be up to us to reject as incorrect their false narrative of racism on the right.

Without that, they have nothing.

    My dad was a life long Democrat...and a terrible racist. Glad my brother and sister did not turn out that way, either!

    The shenanigans of the Democrats have made sure I will vote Republican from now on! Although there are some Republicans who need to be voted put of office.

    In my opinion, when a man named Donald Trump ran for the Office of President, one of his slogans was to "Drain the swamp" I think that has started, and the dregs at the bottom are getting nervous that they are exposed. In my lifetime, I have never seen anything like this.
    Keep exposing them. If not, we will no longer have our Republic country.

    In America we have a process where United States citizens vote for those they want to serve in America through selfless leadership! We do not have, or will we ever have a process where you lie, slander, accuse and investigate your way into control and power! Judge Kavanagh has been attacked in the same way as President Trump! I saw this happen in my state on a Senate level! America loving people do not want their vote taken away by those who want power and control! The democratic party is desperate for power and control, instead of seaking what is best for America and the American citizens.

    I agree w the statement that Trump supporters r fed up w the attacks from the left! We live in a Republic w a 2 party system! The lefts attacks to crumble our party will not work! The more they resist,persist, we will always stand and defend ourselves and our President! Too bad the left can’t c the facts about the state of our union which is great! No dem President has ever had the presidency success of Donald Trump! Get over ur selves now and become pro America!!!

    The Dems know they can't run against Trump's successes so far, so they've taken the "R" route: Russian, Racist, Radical and this has to be tiring to 2020 voters, I'm a voter and I'm totally turned off by it.

    The Delusional, Angry Pack aka the demos are so very Irrational and Jealous of a Most Remarkable Man who is doing EVERYTHING they CAN'T; all for the power they believe "all of those UNSKILLED demos should have. They are so JEALOUS AND ENVIOUS THEY ARE FOAMING AT THE MOUTH WITH RAGE. President Trump is a wonderful, compassionate caring man who LOVES HIS COUNTRY and he is doing such remarkable job as our PRESIDENT that probably no other man would have the stamina, experience, backbone to put up with people such as the democrats!
    God Bless you for all that you are doing for Humanity, Common Sense and President Trump.

    Interestingly, I have found that the "Labels" that are put on Trump, and by extension his supporters, have failed miserably. I surely do not hesitate to declare I am a Deplorable because I do deplore the demeaning attitudes the Democrats, Liberals and their related affiliations so imprudently bestow on Trump. Day by day, hour by hour the so called Elitists prove they do not comprehend the depth of character of the people who work to make this country thrive.

    God bless your honesty, this article needs to be shouted out from the highest mountain top, because I believe we still have some smart and good people on the left who need to hear the truth. Please make sure you get this article out to everyone. I will do my best to do the same and I beg and plead with all Huckabee supporters to do the same.

    I have a favorite DJ; Trump. (He plays good tunes {results}.)
    Dems have been the bane of blacks since the 'Great Society' began. Many of their family, economic, and educational positions have hit the skids due to the promotion of "victim" psychology. If you are a victim, you are not looking for 'good'. You are not happy; hope is lost.

    This true. Democrats are so power and control hungry they will stop at nothing and try anything to get it.

    The Democrats call our President a racist but they want to fashion there party into the Democratic Socialist Party in other words they are pushing for the (Nazi Party). What you say this can’t be true well open up your history books . Adolf Hitler started the National Socialist Democratic Party then he decided the name was to long so it was changed to the Democratic Socialist Party, that’s right Hitler himself started the party that the Democrats want to fashion themselves after so who is the racist. Further more another bit of history the Democrats were against blacks freedom and the black vote so I say the Democratic Party is a party of racist intents for decades.

    The Democrats want to turn the US in to a Democratic Socialist country. However if you learned one thing in School you would realize who started the Democratic Socialist Party , do you know who?

    Times up!

    It started as the National Socialist Democratic Party, then shortened to the Democratic Socialist Party. It was the party of a very evil man it was the party started by Adolf Hitler the Nazi leader himself. And this is what our Democratic Party wants to fashion it self after. Wow America needs to wake up and smell the coffee.

    I get so frustrated at the Democrats who twist and turn Trump's words every single time he says something!! And I agree, it's horrible what they are doing to him and hopefully he doesn't see or listen to very many things they say. America is praying for him every day and as I tell anyone who will listen, Trump will not leave office until God's plan is fulfilled...not before not after...right on time. God is faithful.

    Listening to Mark Levin on the radio tonight, I was left pretty hopeless. I know that liberals moving out of New York and California and elsewhere often seem to move to other "good" states they can then mess up. Maybe that's what the "standbyourplan.org" was all about. It would be a good plan. Turn all the states just enough blue and there's no way you can lose! Please address this in some of your future musings. I am so depressed. Even with the craziness of the left and the very well-attended Trump rallies, we can't seem to catch a break electorally. Maybe the tribulation is right around the corner with Michelle Obama as President. God forbid.

    Very well said Governor Huckabee. I am so tired of the left and some of the right accusing President Trump of not speaking “politically eloquent” and the way he pushes back. The left started bashing him before he started tweeting. The liberal media needs to be called out for all the lies and defamation of character and inciting radicals like antifa and others who call conservatives out for disagreeing with them. The conservatives are speaking out after 8 years of Obama insanity.

    Mike, I love you and support your work, but I dread every time I open your newsletter because of the aggressive ads you allow. Flashing, zooming, distracting me as I try to read, I really feel groped and abused by these tactics. Can you restrain them to "ads on the side or something?"

    I’m trying to find the producer for Gov. Huckabee’s show. I used to book through Joan McNaughton when he aired on FOX. I’d like to pitch some people for his show. One of my clients was a guest on Laura Ingrahm last night. I would be so grateful to get a response and for some direction or leads. Thank you and God bless! Live and admire Gov. Huckabee!! I can be reached via the email listed above or at 719.360.0586. Thanks much!

    I don't know if you heard this one yet. But, a person on another network stated that he had proof that Donald Trump was a Fascist by lowering flags to August 8. Since August is the eighth month which makes this day 8-8 and H is the eighth letter in the alphabet, this signifies HH which is a symbol for Heil Hitler. Unreal, but I actually saw this on TV.....Bill

    I'm really speechless & saddened by the mass shootings in TX & OH!! My prayers go out to all the families & residents. This must stop. We don't need asault weapons or the magazine that holds 100's of amno on the market (these should be used for the military only)!!
    What is so deplorable, is how the democrats ran to politics within minutes of this terrible act by 2 mentally, racist, pigs. The president isn't a racist in any sense of the form. He doesn have an upward battle for his re-election. My prayers to him

    It's an absolute waste of time to provide facts to Democrats who are blinded by their hatred of Donald Trump.

    I also think a good defense is a good offense--which is why the Dems are trying to distract us from the REAL racism spouted by the likes of the Dem "squad" (anti-semitism), Al Sharpton, etc. We just got finished with the Mueller Report and the followup testimony by Mueller himself that Trump was not guilty of collusion, etc., yet the very next day or so Jerry Nadler states as fact that Trump colluded. The media simply repeats the lies, just as they continue to lie about Trump being a racist. Yesterday, Trump repeated what's he's said many times before that he disavows white supremacy and racism, yet Joe Biden claims as recently as yesterday that Trump never disavowed that and should do so. OPEN YOUR EARS, JOE! I've never been a fan of Joe Biden, but I am shocked how desperate he and the Dems all are to repeat stuff they know darn well are lies.

    As for the Castro brothers, the harrasssment of Trump supporters is off the charts, as is the mob terror of Mitch McConnell. I'm more afraid of a Socialist Revolution right now than I am of public shootings. The hate is over the top and I fear that the Dems are inciting violence, as is the media.

    I'm convinced the media and Dems all get their talking points each day and spout them non-stop: the white supremacist and racist garbage was repeated all day yesterday.

    May God have mercy on our country and heal us.
