Trump's remarks regarding the racist outburst against his Mexico comments:


"I don’t see how there is any room for misunderstanding or misinterpretation of the statement I made on June 16th during my Presidential announcement speech," Trump wrote, adding, "What can be simpler or more accurately stated? The Mexican Government is forcing their most unwanted people into the United States. They are, in many cases, criminals, drug dealers, rapists, etc."


Some people are racist, Donald. They see someone with a darker skin getting criticized, they cannot help their racist feelings, and outbursts occur.

Truly, this whole election is frustrating! Hillary and Trump both have an insane ability at being utterly tactless, especially their extreme supporters! Bernie is too extreme left of my thinking. I consider myself moderate center. The liberals/green party/etc...are too narrow in their focus it alienates me! I voted for Kasich in my primary. Only liked 50% of what he wanted, but alas, I have to admit I am liking that Trump is becoming more moderate! I originally thought he was a joke, Clinton plant, and not a serious contender! Lol. He might have been, but it seems like he has grasped the reins and is going to ride this out.

Elizabeth Warren is too extreme for me as well. Her tweeting like this does make me want to look deeper, but it also, seems too extreme! I think many Americans are getting more involved in this election. Like me, they are disappointed with choices they made in their past, and are trying their best to elect the best person for President with the choices offered. Sigh. Seriously, All 3 of the major contenders have positive and negatives, and that is what is sadly dividing our nation this election. plus the extreme fans for each contender in their attempts to vilify competitor candidates have a reverse effect.

You're not making much sense.

I think I'll concede on our debate before it gets more convoluted than it already is.

Yes, that was Trump backtracking.

"Even if Trump said all Mexicans are rapists(which he didn't,) you still have to explain how that statement is racist. "

what?

up until now most of this argument was semantics (they're vs their, whether he was talking about "illegals" or mexicans in general) but giving an example of a broad generalization of a race and then saying "How is that racist?" makes you seem like you're being intentionally obtuse. I can't think of a better Trolling line like that.

Oh was it closed captioned? "They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists, and some I assume are good people."
He didn't say they're bringing their drugs. Like they're bringing their personal effects. What their pots and their pans and their rapists. . ????

Considering that he added specific words to further clarify his statements, such as "in many cases", I would consider that a backtrack.

Or perhaps a simple clarification after he stuck his foot in his mouth.

This was right after he said they're not sending their best. In other words, they're sending their worst. How that equates to all Mexicans is beyond any stretch of bubble-gum logic I've ever seen.

It appears you need the clarification.

All cases of racism are cases of considering some races to be superior to other races.
Trump said all Mexicans are rapists(keep on mind he didn't really say that!)
Therefore, Trump is a racist.

This argument is invalid because the premises don't lead to the conclusion. Why? Because Mexicans aren't a race, they're citizens of a country! The only one trolling is you. I asked Inteovert to give me an instance of Trump being racist, thats what all this is about.

Ok so let's talk about laziness is a trait in blacks. He says about the accountants at his casinos.
And the only kind of people I want counting my money are short and wear yarmulke every day. That's a reference to Jews in case some don't know what a yarmulke is.

Nothing convoluted about it, I asked you to give me an instance of Trump being racist and you can't. I accept your concession.

You're being intentionally obtuse. You try to say that it's not a race issue because Mexicans are nationality, not a race, but fail to recognize that the country in 90% Mestizo or Amerindian. Only 9% is white and 1% other.

Do you see many white folk jumping the fence to come to America?

Therefore, his comments are directed towards a people in which the predominant race is Mestizo or Amerindian and we wonder why some people find his comments racist?

This lible slander was done on Herman Cain in the 2012 election and was on Shawn Hannity's radio show last Monday. He didn't have spare money to sue the slanders including liberal media reporters, but Donald Trump does.

It will be interesting if and when "warrior chicken hawk lady" gets in court by the next President Trump.

His comments were directed toward the Mexican government for sending it's criminal element to the United States. Race has absolutely NOTHING to do with it. NOTHING.

His comments were towards the people. Specifically being criminals, drug dealers and rapists.

But he assumes SOME were good people.

Isn't that nice if him?

Either way, his comments are categorically false.

You're obsfucating, Introvert. His comments were not about "the people." His comments were about ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS that the Mexican government is sending over because these particular people are criminal. NOTHING to do with race and NOTHING to do with all Mexicans.
