House Democrats Have Come to an Agreement, Trump is Racist



well the president not a race but the comments and I think the tone of all of us is not good for the country but it's coming from all different ideological points of view that's the point to single out any segment of this I think is the mistake that's what it looks like to try to get your momentum back while also trying to ignore the racism tornadoes swirling around you but who can blame the majority leader really things were going so well for the Republicans there for a moment Democrats were infighting about race at the primary debate and the fissures among Democrats in Congress were playing out on cable in the pages of the New York Times then well the president did what the president does sometimes he tweeted he tweeted some racist does it concern you that many people saw that tweet as racist and that white nationalist groups are finding common cause with you on that point doesn't concern me because many people agree with me and all I'm saying they want to leave they can leave now it doesn't say leave forever sidebar that go back to your country construction is very thinly veiled code for you don't look like me so you'll never be welcome here no matter where you were born moving on all that left an opening for the four Democratic freshmen that the tweets targeted one of whom fled here as a child to become an American citizen and the other three were you know born here I also would like to just underscore the fact that despite the occupant of the White House attempts to marginalize us and to silence us please know that we are more than four people we ran on a mandate to advocate for and to represent those ignored left out and left behind well Trump did with Trump does the house did with the house does passed a mostly toothless resolution that condemned the president's quote racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color these comments from the White House are disgraceful and disgusting and Vicks comments are racist so if what the president was going for was symbolically uniting the Democratic Party while once again leaving Republic on the hill trying to figure out how to answer and/or avoid our producers questions about his remarks well played congressman do you have a few minutes to talk about Trump's tweets do you have a few minutes to chat I can't because I'm late for conference okay if a member of your family was told to go back home how would you receive that well you know if they don't like living here and they want to go back to Wales and that's where they should go politically for Republicans this points to a bigger problem that the party has been aware of for years they laid it out pretty well after they lost the White House in 2012 remember that GOP autopsy report after President Obama won page 7 subject heading America looks different in at the party wrote quote if we want as Nick minority voters to support Republicans we have to engage them and show our sincerity while the test case of 2016 showed that perhaps the Republican Party didn't need to follow through with their own analysis immediately 2018 was a hint at what demographic changes in this country could mean for the party in the long term according to dr. Matt Barreto a UCLA political science professor and pollster I think there's there's two things that are happening one are the demographic changes that are taking place in this country in which the number of older conservative white voters is getting smaller as a share of the electorate and the number of younger Latino african-american asian-american voters is getting larger we're just having massive demographic change number two is that even within the white voters who Trump had won in 2016 even assuming there's the same number of overall white voters the number who are hardcore Trump supporters is shrinking Trump lost ground in 2018 and all of the exit polls and precinct data and election rules that they confirmed that McConnell has this data Trump has this data and even though midterms aren't presidential election years they know what it means for 2020 if new voters then and Beyond see the grand old party is consciously aligned with the kind of things the president likes to tweet it'll be harder to get those voters to believe the party can represent sin and that's a problem even after Trump is no longer their leader

    If u want to report report the tweet correctly and in its entirety. He said why don’t they go back to where they came from and fix the shit whole they came from and then show us how it’s done since they think America is a shit whole. He didn’t say we don’t want you you here and go back to your country. It’s funny how the media twists this and any person with a brain will agree it was NOT a racist tweet. I am a legal immigrant from a Muslim country and I can tell you that much. Vice is part owned by the a big left leaning groups.

    I will agree the man has said alot of stuff but really tell us what has he really said in actual words that promote the idea that what he said was racist.. I am not talking about his normal crazy reddick actions and words but real actual racist content. Don't come at me with your own emotional opinion and context because those are not hard facts and understand what racism really means and not some half baked emotional understanding. I don't care about your emotional opinions be an adult get control of your feelings and then make a comprehensive intellectual commitment

    Mitch McConnell doesn't think Trump is racist because Mitch McConnell is a big fat racist. Please, kentuckians, vote him out ASAP.

    This is great… The self destruction of the democrat party and a reset of progressiveism to 1980 levels, all at once. Total collapse in leadership, and usurping of the party by freshmen congresswomen and their "boulder crashing down a mountian" strategy of calling out everyone and then hiding behind a "women of color" defense. I mean…. How are you going to single out a person of color… Right?

    It was racially insensitive. Not racist. It had nothing to do with the way they look but the way theyve acted. Every single one of the "The Squad" have been calling him racist since day 1.

    When everyone refuses to talk to your producer @ 2:18 there's your sign that you and the rest of Vice news is a crack pot. Vice has become a form of mindless entertainment with their idiotic ideas and comments.

    The republicans know about the demographic changes; that is why they are trying to include a citizenship question on the census; that is why they continually try to disenfranchise voters; that it why they gerrymander voting districts

    1:20 those four women didn't condemn a domestic terrorist attack from antifa. Also there's a theory as to why trump said that. There's a video from psa sitch that elaborates on this theory

    its not really racist when it’s directed to specifically people coming into our country illegally because they’re trying to “run away” from their home countries corruption. we have laws like any other under controlled country, respect them or be treated like any other law breaker in this country. go back to your country and come back the right way.

    In 2019 calling someone is a racist is equivalent to calling someone a “poopiehead”.

    Racist, racist racist. Blah blah blah. Vice blows donkeys.

    “Code”?

    Is this considered journalism?

    Who gives a rat's ass what Democrats have to say. Their opinions mean nothing. Fact is the Democrats in our country are the most racist piece of the s*** that we have. Trump will definitely win 2020. I believe we should Outlaw Democrats and get them out of our government

    Oh Jesus please! There was nothing racist about that tweet. Was it insulting, yes it was. It was targeted to put the extreme left in birds eye view. Those policies they offer are horrid. Look at Omar's polling at 8% in her home state! This is why many people are leaving the democratic party. My friends which are moderate democrats my age (late 20's) are done with the dems. My brothers and their friends coming off high school do not like the democratic party and are voting Republican this next election. Hell, I'm done with the dems. Stop making everything about race, gender, or whatever else. It gets borring and annoying. Like the boy who cried wolf. Kick those 4 congresswomen out, offer better policies, stop dedicating 100% attention to Trump, and just move on people. Your emotions get the best of you and it will cost you another election like 2016.
