Trump Shrugs Off Racist Chants: You Can’t Stop People

The Associated Press reports:

President Trump said he does not know if his supporters will chant “send them back” about four minority lawmakers at a Thursday night rally, but said he prefers they do not. “I prefer that they don’t,” Trump told reporters at the White House before departing for the rally in Cincinnati.

The president initially repudiated the chants after a rally crowd chanted last month in North Carolina, but later backed away from his condemnation. “If they do the chant, we’ll see what happens,” the president said.

All eyes will be watching both the Ohio crowd’s behavior — and how Trump reacts. Even his closest advisers seem uncertain as to what may transpire.
