US Democrats call Trump 'Racist president'
The US Democrats on Friday slammed Donald Trump for inciting violence against protesters who were demonstrating in Minneapolis over the death of an African American in police custody, calling him a 'Racist president'.
Iran Press/America: In the latest protests against Trump's threatening tweet, Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., asked his Twitter followers what people will do today to win in November's elections, saying that it’s a scary time with 100,000 dead from the coronavirus pandemic and "a president calling for the murder of political opponents and protesters."
I know it feels scary today. 100,000 dead. Fires raging. A President calling for the murder of political opponents and protesters.— Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) May 29, 2020
But there is no anxiety or anger you feel that cannot be cured by political action.
So what are you going to do today to win in November?
After Trump's incompetence causes 100,000 die from a deadly virus, he calls for the death of Democrats and protesters to be shot on sight.— Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) May 29, 2020
When I imagined the worst case scenario under Trump, I admittedly never imagined this.
Joe Biden, the apparent 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, tweeted:
I will not lift the President’s tweet. I will not give him that amplification. But he is calling for violence against American citizens during a moment of pain for so many. I’m furious, and you should be too.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) May 29, 2020
Hillary Clinton tweeted that Trump is "calling for violence against American citizens."

That is so wrong. We need honest reckoning and reconciliation.
If you haven’t already joined the work to replace him in November, start now.
In his horrendous Tweet, Trump had used the term "thugs" and saying, "When the looting starts, the shooting starts."
