Trump Puts the Purpose of His Presidency Into Words

Adam Serwer — The Atlantic:

These remarks reflect scorn not only for those who wish to come here, but those who already have. It is a president of the United States expressing his contempt for the tens of millions of descendants of Africans, most of whose forefathers had no choice in crossing the Atlantic, American citizens whom any president is bound to serve. And it is a public admission of sorts that he is incapable of being a president for all Americans, the logic of his argument elevating not just white immigrants over brown ones, but white citizens over the people of color they share this country with.

Are you woke to this vile clown’s intent, yet? Or are you still hanging onto an excuse, a qualification?
