@realDonaldTrump @BreitbartNews Under your Turd Reich racist regime: Black Americans still continue to be concentrated in lower sector jobs, which do not have adequate healthcare or paid sick leave and have disproportionately exposed them to COVID-19. PPP from the Small Business Administration left Black
@realDonaldTrump @BreitbartNews businesses out in the cold. Over 90% of Black-owned small businesses that applied for PPP funding were denied. This has led to over 40% of Black-owned small businesses being shuttered during COVID-19. For many Black people, Trump’s law and order rhetoric and dismissal of the
@realDonaldTrump @BreitbartNews Movement for Black Lives unearths collective memories about his full-page advertisements in four New York newspapers including The New York Times, to crucify the now exonerated Central Park 5. In big, bold letters, Trump’s headline read: “Bring Back the Death Penalty.
@realDonaldTrump @BreitbartNews Bring Back our Police!”While it is true that Trump signed the First Step Act, a bipartisan bill originally introduced by Senator Cory Booker as the Next Step Act that seeks to decrease recidivism and prison population numbers by providing more vocational training and work
@realDonaldTrump @BreitbartNews opportunities for the formally incarcerated, the Administration’s Department of Justice has also taken steps which have undermined efforts to decrease racist and hostile encounters between Black and Brown Americans and law enforcement. Trump's regime has purposely halted
@realDonaldTrump @BreitbartNews consent decrees and Department of Justice police department investigations. As a point of reference, the Obama administration handed down the most consent decrees of any president. If Trump was doing more for Black people, he would do all he could to ensure they have equitable
@realDonaldTrump @BreitbartNews access to vote. Voting Rights is a cornerstone civil right that Black communities fought to secure. There are millions of Black people who recall not being able to vote. Black people’s right to vote has not been protected and many will be potentially exposed to
@realDonaldTrump @BreitbartNews COVID-19 because of their distrust in the mail-in ballot process.COVID-19 has disproportionately killed Black people at double the rate of Whites. However, it could have been different. When Trump took office, he dismantled the pandemic response unit created under
@realDonaldTrump @BreitbartNews the Obama-Biden administration. He also shut down the social and behavioral committee that helps inform the White House on how people embedded in social institutions like education, hospitals, prisons, grocery stores and restaurants, and neighborhoods might be disproportionately
@realDonaldTrump @BreitbartNews affected based on their urban or rural environments. These factors are the main reason why, to date, nearly 8 million Americans have contracted COVID-19 and nearly 220,000 have died. In 2016, Trump asked Black Americans: “What do you have to lose?”
@realDonaldTrump @BreitbartNews This is such an infamous statement that rapper @MeekMill put it in the opening of his recent song. Well, what Black people have to lose are their lives as well as those of their loved ones if stuck with four more years of a Trump administration.--@SociologistRay @DrKLG4Health

This whole Matt Gaetz outing of his so-called secret 'son' is so on brand for the repulsive #FloridaMan, trying to convince people that he is not a repugnant racist who took a Holocaust denier as his plus 1 to the #SOTU, and that, look here, I have a brown helper--er, son, see?!
But, since Matty has now thrown his big reveal party for the entire American public, there are a few questions to be answered beyond those involving pool cleaning. That's just none of our biz. What we do want to know is, who is Maisbel Mendez, why did the Gaetz family buy her a
Beemer, why does she have the same Fort Walton Beach, FL address as Matty (and a mug shot too), and why was she involved in a 2016 court case against Nelson SENIOR in which she petitioned for 'concurrent custody by extended family"? Also, who is Marbelina Matos, who lives

First we muted it. Then we had to teach our kids what "grab her by the pussy" meant. Then we had to explain kids in cages. We explained why the white boys with tiki torches chanted "Jews will not replace us" while the "president" said there were 'very fine people on both sides.'
Then they learned what collusion, witch hunt, obstruction, impeachment & quid pro quo meant. They learned about real& fake news, learned about the murderous dictators that the "president" spoke so highly of & they learned about 'shithole countries.'They learned the word pandemic,
Covid-19, neither a hoax nor a flu, which has killed many of their friends' grandparents, aunts & uncles. Now they are learning more about the "president's" very fine people, a police officer supposed to protect them, who suffocated a black man with his knee as three others

Just had a maddening, yet civilized face to face conversation w/59 white female Trump supporter whose only news source is Fox. Because I don't have a degree in deprogramming, all I can say is that the brainwashing is legit BUT she agreed to watch other channels. She says as a
white, lower middle class American she felt left behind and felt that illegal immigrants get treated better in the US than she has. She thinks the border is closed for good and thinks Trump will "get around" to helping her ilk 'eventually.' Interestingly, she loved Bill Clinton.
She watched the Dem debate and liked @PeteButtigieg, but thinks he is being funded by George Soros. She is mad about money Obama gave to Iran. I attempted correction at every Fox/#TurdReich lie she spewed but was met with, "maybe you need to watch more Fox News." Hopeless-sort of

Criminal IMPOTUS just said "QUIET" to journo asking about Parnas and then said to 'just look at the polls.' Its face is more red than orange today, too. Guilt-induced Rosacea. Says this is the 'hottest country in the world' and isn't talking about global warming. Lies lies lies.
Everything was perfect. Says it's a shame, but I think he meant to say 'sham.' Tooting horn of USMCA, rambles back to perfect call, now greatest economic revival, best numbers, African Americans, Asians, Hispanics, best, hoax, phony, country never been better. #TrumpMeltdown
Schiff made up things, perfectly accurate transcript, looootenant colonel, perfect transcript, we have the greatest economy, highest job numbers (wrong), more people working ever (wrong), doing hell of a job, no reason I got impeached. Disgrace, hoax. #TrumpMeltdown
