Published

on

The year 2018 was flooded with unprecedented political scandals and corruption from President Donald Trump’s administration. The president saw no boundaries in the lies he told and the people he attacked.

Trump took to Twitter to bash any person who challenged his presidency or showed even the slightest ounce of disloyalty.

One group of people that Trump attacked consistently throughout 2018 is Black women.

“Trump’s vicious and public insults of black female professionals should remind us that black women have long had to fight for respect and dignity and against demeaning and ugly stereotypes in the public space,” Sherrilyn Ifill resident and director-counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund wrote in The Washington Post.

Trump has attacked black women ranging from former first lady Michelle Obama to veteran journalist April Ryan.

Here are 10 black women Trump attacked in 2018.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
