President Donald Trump joined the political dog-pile on Michael Bloomberg’s recently unearthed remarks about the controversial stop and frisk policy he inherited, and continued, as mayor of New York City. This coming from the president who refuses to apologize for demanding the executions of the Central Park 5, refers to illegal immigrants as an “invasion” of rapists and criminals, spent years pushing the “birtherism” lie against former president Barack Obama, told four American congresswomen to “go back” to the countries they came from, said a judge couldn’t preside over a lawsuit against him because he’s “Mexican,” and engaged in racial demagoguery throughout his political life.
There’s just one little problem with this…
Donald J. Trump in 2016: “I would do stop-and-frisk. I think you have to. We did it in New York, it worked incredibly well and you have to be proactive and, you know, you really help people sort of change their mind automatically,” https://t.co/gVl6iz8vXA
