    In this case it's Occam's razor. You'd need to find something less defensible to prove racism.

    Here, he's just being stupid. This move is too sure a way to lose votes.

    Many here concede Trump is a malignant narcissist but not a racist. I disagree.
    I propose thatís itís not that hard to convey youíre not racist and that Trump has failed spectacularly at that.
    It's scary -- literally scary -- how you guys keep creating these "gotcha" threads about this faux claim of racism against Trump that always turns out to be bogus, yet you completely ignore Biden's past. Imagine if Trump had worked with white supremacists (not the fake "white supremacist" that's thrown around today by you clowns, but LITERAL 70s southern white supremacists) to vehemently oppose black segregation. It would be an open and shut case that Trump was a bonafide racist, even if Trump profusely apologized or made excuses for it. It would be a no-brainer. That type hypocrisy astounds the heck out of me.

    He has got so many apologists who seemingly think they are called to try to clean up for him. It is right here in this thread. He can say whatever or do whatever, and there are people who see it as their higher calling to make sure he is not held accountable, to make sure others do not draw the line at this point or any of the previous points where they should have drawn the line if they actually cared about integrity.

    OK, you're right. Trump's retweet was acknowledging his racist buddies, because he knows their votes will outweigh everyone elses and he will win reelection on their strength alone.

    He will win partly on their strength and partly on the strength of people who do not really care, partly on people who see it as their higher calling to explain this all away, partly on people who are fooled by those who see it as their higher calling to make wrong look right and the like... You see, some people will support him no matter what. That is one reason he does not care too much about situations like the one we are discussing here.

    And, KG is NOT a Trump apologist!

    But, hey, if the leftists didn't have something to complain about, they'd be miserable. They're miserable unless they can be miserable.

    And there are those who live in the gutter and will do anything and everything to spew forth hate. You guys are becoming very much like your image of Trump.

    The world's most powerful man retweets a video of a man shouting "white power". Somehow, in the preachers world, people who are concerned about that are miserable. People who complain about the retweeting of racist messages are miserable according to the "Christian" who claims to believe all people are created in the image of God. Do you remember those good old lyrics by Bob Dylan? You're gonna have to serve somebody.... I am sure you remember the next part...

    He usually sends out secret code to his nonexistent white supremacist base. There was no code this time, so he must be slipping.
