Hillary Clinton Just Took Trump Down A Peg With A Brutal Response To Trump’s Racist Comments



Many voices have spoken out about President Donald Trump’s comments, in which he decried during partisan talks about the possibility of the U.S. receiving immigrants from what he labeled “shithole countries.”

Trump denied on Friday that he used that particular language in his complaints. Yet Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) confirmed those words were used, and other Republican lawmakers have either confirmed it also, or issued a phony statement saying they “don’t recall” the president speaking in that way.

It seems, then, that the president is lying, which most of the world assumed anyway. Everyone is thusly condemning his statement, from foreign leaders to cable television hosts.

This afternoon, another voice spoke out against Trump — his former opponent in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton.

Clinton issued out a tweet commemorating the 8-year anniversary of a devastating earthquake that took place in Haiti. This day is “a day to remember the tragedy, honor the resilient people of Haiti, & affirm America’s commitment to our neighbors,” she wrote. “Instead, we’re subjected to Trump’s ignorant, racist views of anyone who doesn’t look like him.”

Clinton’s criticism of Trump is on the mark — in the same meeting, Trump had suggested growing the number of white European immigrants instead of taking individuals from African or Latin American nations. His biases against non-white immigrants are noticeable for the whole world to see, and it’s difficult for any of his staunchest defenders to continue justifying his racist actions.

Trump’s racism cannot be hidden any longer. Many of us already knew that he was a racist — there’s literally decades of evidence confirming it. Today, however, is an embarrassment for our nation, on the world stage especially.

Ours is a nation that immigrants across the globe look toward for hope and inspiration. Today, all they see is filth and bigotry, and it’s all because of President Trump.
