Trump is going to crush Al Sharpton after he crossed the line with two words
There are few who have been worse for race relations than Al Sharpton.
He has made millions by stoking the flames of racial divide.
And now Trump is going to crush Al Sharpton after he crossed the line with two words.
Al Sharpton has made a name for himself for attacking white people for decades.
The self-described “civil rights leader” has inserted himself into every racial controversy in his lifetime.
In doing so, he has made boatloads of money, which he’s often neglected to pay taxes on.
And now, he’s used his career to torpedo himself into a cushy job at the Far-left fake news network MSNBC.
From his position at the network, he attacks Trump every day of the week.
And in a recent interview he took things a lot further.
Speaking to The Guardian, Sharpton was asked about his past association with Trump, with Sharpton even featuring the then-businessman at his Action Network conventions.
Sharpton says that he did so to show bipartisanship and that it wasn’t until the election of Barack Obama that he realized that Trump is a “white nationalist.”
The Guardian reports:
In 2002 and 2006 the billionaire appeared at Sharpton’s National Action Network conventions, now among the largest civil rights symposiums in America, as an invited guest. The pair posed for photos, both beaming.
Does he regret bringing him now?
“I wanted to show bipartisanship,” Sharpton says, striking a surprisingly defensive tone. “You can’t have a civil rights convention where you say I’m only going to have one side, and so it was in that spirit.”
But it was after the election of Obama, he says, that his assessment of Trump went from being one of a “cynical manipulator of race” to “a white nationalist”, as he led the “birther” conspiracy movement.
“At our last sit-down meeting he argued with me about Barack Obama not being born here but being born in Kenya. If you’re not one of us, you’re one of them. That’s when I was convinced … That’s who he is. He’s a white nationalist. This is not just some maneuver of his. He deep down inside believes that.”
To Al Sharpton, anybody even slightly in the Right-wing is a “white nationalist.”
So it isn’t surprising he is attacking Trump with that baseless charge.
But with as shaky a past as Sharpton has, it probably isn’t a great idea to target the President.
Trump could easily destroy him with just one tweet.
