President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter once again to endorse the vile history of the Confederacy. In a series of tweets, Trump shows that at heart he is a racist and wants racist imagery to exist. Trump tweeted the following:

Throughout the country, there has been a call to remove the images of the men who sought to destroy the United States and to keep Blacks in perpetual servitude.  All of this coming in after the “Unite or Die” rally held in Charlottesville, Virginia that led to the death of one woman and the injuring of  19 others by an avowed white supremacist. Trump has been criticized, and rightly so, for his late response and refusal to put the blame on the hate filled rhetoric and actions of White supremacists. It is a blatant appealing to his base of bigots and a reminder that Trump actually turned a blind eye to violence at his presidential campaign rallies.

Former KKK grand wizard and Republican Davis Duke  tweeted:
“Thank you, President Trump, for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about #Charlottesville & condemn the leftist terrorists in BLM/Antifa.”

Trump claimed he did not know David Duke was present at the rally but stated that the neo-Nazis, KKK members, and White nationalists had a permit.

In Charlottesville, America saw on one side people wearing swastikas, carrying confederate flags and calling themselves Nazis. All of these images of an ideology and enemy that the United States fought against and defeated during the Civil War, World War 2, and the destruction of unconstitutional laws. On the other side, there were people who opposed the ideology of hate and called for the values of America to be honored.

By comparing the two sides as equal it is now apparent that the United States has a president who admires traitors and enemies to American democracy.
