Donald Trump is blaming President Obama for the racial tensions between black communities and the police saying his body language shows “there’s something going on.”
Trump has moved on from his birther conspiracies. Now he’s floating another equally reckless conspiracy theory that Obama’s in cahoots with fanning flames of racial tensions. That’s despite the president condemning the vicious attacks on the officers in Baton Rouge.
During an interview on Fox and Friends, to address the shootings deaths of three police officers in Baton Rouge by Gavin Long, Trump suggested that President Obama was using his body language to implicitly signal support for Black Lives Matter protesters over the police.
Trump said, “I watched the president and sometimes the words are okay.” “But you just look at the body language and there’s something going on. Look, there’s something going on.”
“What does that mean, there’s something going on?” host Brian Kilmeade asked.
Trump replied, “There’s just a bad feeling, a lot of bad feeling about him. I see it too. There’s a lot of bad feeling about him.”
Kilmeade stated that Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), who is black, and Newt Gingrich have spoken out about the unfair treatment of blacks by police officers. He asked, “Is there something on the other side that needs to be addressed?”
Trump responded, “It’s probably something that we really don’t know and maybe we can’t feel it unless we’re black. It is a—it’s definitely something going on there also. That has to do with training and it has to do with something. But there is something going on that maybe, Brian, we can’t recognize or we can’t see it unless you’re black and it’s an experience. There’s no question about that.”
Brian Kilmeade continued to press Trump by asking how he could address issues confronting the black community as a white man.
“Well, you have to see and you have to put yourself in their position and you have to see what’s going on,” Trump said. Then he launched into a defense of the police.
“Really, they’re under attack and now they’re under attack in the true sense of the word.” “We have to bring law and order back to this country, whether we like it or not. We have to bring law and order back to this country. No games.”
So, the killings of black men by police officers amounts to nothing more than “games” for Donald Trump? Really? We will remember this come November 8. This kind of rhetoric coming from Trump is reckless and really despicable on the part of anyone, much less a presidential nominee.
