Attacking Trump isn’t a new thing in the 2020 US elections. However, Elizabeth Warren and Beto O’Rourke consider Donald Trump to be a white supremacist. The two leading Democratic presidential candidates stated, offering Warren an unequivocal “Yes” for that question on the New York Times. The presidential race has been escalating rapidly.
“He has given aid and comfort to white supremacists,” the Massachusetts senator and 2020 runner said. “He’s done the wink and a nod. He has talked about white supremacists as fine people. He’s done everything he can to stir up racial conflict and hatred in this country.”
Furthermore, a step further went O’Rourke, the former congressman for the El Paso district. In fact he has spoken out about the president’s track record of using racist rhetoric.
However, on the query in an MSNBC TV interview whether Trump was a white supremacist, he replied without hesitation: “He is.”
Escalations in the presidential race
However, the escalation in 2020 Democrats’ accusations against the president is visible.
Joe Biden’s strongest condemnation of the president was aid in a speech that Trump had “fanned the flames of white supremacy”.
While visiting victims in El Paso, O’Rourke launched a fierce attack and predicted that racist rhetoric will fuel more massacres. In fact he was entailing about more mass shootings and migrants arriving in the US via the border with Mexico.
“It will happen again because what happened in El Paso is not an isolated incident,” he told MSNBC.
“There are very real consequences to his words and his tweets and the racism that he fans. At a rally in Florida in May when he said , ‘How are we going to stop these people?’ someone yells ‘Shoot them’ and the crowd roars their approval and he laughs,” O’Rourke added.
