‘Not surprised at all that the president sides with the white nationalists’: Native American Congresswoman

Published

on

One of the first two Native American women in Congress blasted President Donald Trump for siding with white nationalists on Saturday.

Following the fatal “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville in 2017, Trump claimed there were “fine people” on both sides when he defended the alt-Right and Neo-Nazi event.

Two years later, Trump has gone even further, blaming only the anti-fascist activists confronting far-right marching in Portland, Oregon in a way that reminds many of the invasion of Charlottesville.

Rep. Deb Haaland (D-NM) was asked about Trump’s tweet by CNN’s Ana Cabrera.

“This is on par with what the president does,” she replied. “He sides with the white supremacists, he sides the white nationalists, with the domestic terrorists in our country, just as — you know, he has incited violence against people of color.”

“Portland is a progressive city,” Haaland explained. “They want to ensure that they keep their city moving forward.”

“It’s not surprising that Trump would side away from the folks who are the peaceful protesters working to safeguard their city from domestic terrorism. Just not surprised at all that the president sides with the white nationalists,” Haaland said. “That’s been his mode of operation since before he was elected president.”

"Come again? What's that now?" Cupp asked in disbelief.

"I think there are some women who beg to differ," she noted.

Published

The former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus was baffled by an exchange during the third Democratic debate.

"I’ve seen a lot of criticism of former Vice President Joe Biden over this exchange," CNN's Jake Tapper said, playing a clip.

"What responsibility do you think that Americans need to take to repair the legacy of slavery in our country?" moderator Linsey Davis asked Biden on Thursday.

"We bring social workers into homes and parents to help them deal with how to raise their children. It is not they don’t want to help. They don’t know quite what to do. Play the radio. Make sure the television — excuse me make sure that you have the record player on at night, the phone —" Biden said.

Published

A Pennsylvania man who voted for President Donald Trump in 2016 told CNN on Friday that he's bitterly disappointed in how he's seen no progress in manufacturing jobs returning to his community.

John Golomb, a retired steel worker who backed the president in 2016 because of his promises to bring back good paying jobs to the Rust Belt, explained to CNN that Trump gave his community false hope about an economic revival during his first presidential campaign.

"We had Donald Trump come here and profess about reviving American steel," he said. "That's just what all of us steelworkers wanted to hear!"
