You probably didn’t think Donald Trump could have a more racist moment than when he called Mexicans rapists or referred to African nations as “shithole” countries. Well, you were very, very wrong.
President Trump hit a new level of racist when he revealed that thought all people on welfare were black.
According to a new report, Trump was unaware that not all — not even the vast majority — of welfare recipients are not black.
Back in March of last year, the newly elected president met with members of the Congressional Black Caucus, When one member mentioned that welfare reform would impact her constituents (“not all of whom are black”), Trump allegedly replied, “Really? Then what are they?”
According to statistics, the biggest beneficiaries of government safety-net programs are white Americans. 6.2 million working-class whites benefited from federal safety-net and poverty reduction programs in 2014, more than any other racial or ethnic group. Similarly, 40 percent of SNAP (food stamp) recipients are white, while only 25.7 percent are black.
Sorry, Donnie, but you’re wrong yet again when it comes to your views of minorities.
