Opinion: Donald Trump is a racist who preys on the powerless

,

( CNN) Donald Trump is a racist.

Trump’s incensed disorder Thursday about “all these parties from shithole countries” — language that after a night’s sleep he only affirmed using on Friday morning — is the latest example of his aversion of entire an organization of people based on their place of origin or religion.

During the 2016 electoral campaign, we heard him imply that all Mexicans were drug dealers and rapists. Last time, he retweeted Islamophobic videos by a far-right British radical. The New York Times reportedthat Trump said all Haitians “have AIDS” and that Nigerians don’t want to go back to their “huts.”
