On Monday, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer panel said that President Donald Trump’s midterm strategy was the most “overt” racist campaign they’ve ever seen.
Trump has been peddling fear and loathing ahead of the election on Tuesday. Even cable networks including Fox News pulled Trump’s ad from their channels because it was filled with straight lies.
Analyst Ron Brownstein said that Trump might lose some Republican votes because people cannot align with his values anymore.
“The reason why Republicans are facing widespread losses in wide collar suburbs that are the places doing the best in this thriving economy is that many college-educated white voters who ordinarily vote Republicans on economics simply cannot abide by Trump on values and the way he comports himself,” he said.
“And the way he has chosen to finish the election. I mean this is the most overt appeal to white racial resentment since George Wallace from a national figure,” he said.

Social media responds to Trump’s ‘go back’ tweet with viral hashtags #TrumpIsARacist and #RacistInChief
President Donald Trump began Sunday by saying that four Congresswomen of color should go back to their country of origin before they try to be American officials. The greatest problem is that all of the women are Americans, three of which are naturalized. Both cable news and social media was filled with accusations about Trump's racism, prompting #TrumpIsARacist and #RacistInChief to trend on Twitter across the nation.
Trump employed the "I know you are but what am I" defense, saying that the Democrats are the real racists. It's a strategy he's tried with accusations of "fake news" in the past and it's proven to be successful in feeding his supporters the response lines.

According to the excerpts of the new tell-all book on the administration, President Donald Trump was essentially manipulated by multiple staffers, into picking Mike Pence as his running mate.
Here’s how lies and hypocrisy took over the Republican Party and hit an all-time high
Last week, before Trump’s buffoonish cave on his attempt to hijack the census, Greg Sargent wrote about Attorney General William Barr’s emerging role as Trump’s enabler in undermining the rule of law — first in the census case, then in the challenge to the Affordable Care Act.
The connection between the two is straightforward, according to University of Michigan law professor Nicholas Bagley. “In both, Barr directed his lawyers to make bad-faith arguments, just because Trump said so,” Bagley told Sargent. “That’s a blow to the integrity of the Justice Department and a threat to the rule of law.”
