Trumps racism towards the squad is actually being called racism by some media outlets, and we need to keep calling it out.
Trump is 21st century fascism, filled with toxic masculinity, nationalism and white supremacy.
Trump and his racist are an ongoing attack on democracy, and its very loud, white supremacy.
Ibram X. Kendi, founding director of American University’s Antiracist Research and Policy Center, considers a different line of inquiry: who gets to be American? Kendi and Brooke talk about how the president's comments have plenty of precedent in history.
Trump is doubling down on racist attacks aimed at the congresswomen of color, he is propping up white supremacy and using fear tactics.
