There’s no excuse – ever – for what this Dem Congressman said about Trump voters from the House floor

In a speech from the House floor, a New York congressman proved again why Democrats continue to lose.

In a rant about white supremacy and the “hate crimes” that President Trump is allegedly guilty of, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries declared that while not all Trump voters are racists, “every racist in America voted for Donald Trump.”

“Since January 20th, we’ve seen a disturbing increase here in America in anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, anti-black, anti-LGBT and anti-Semitic acts. And the question is, is this just a coincidence, or could it possibly have something to do with the election of the 45th president of the United States of America?” the New York Democrat said in House proceedings on Monday.

Jeffries listed what he considered historical examples and continued his predictable left-wing journey of spreading claims of racism as a counter to conservative Republicans, arguing that the election of former President Obama was “an incredible step in the right direction,” and gave Americans “eight years of tremendous progress.”

“And many of us are wondering, why were so many people who worship at the altar of white supremacy drawn to Donald Trump’s campaign?” Jeffries asked.”What was it about this individual that so many folks dripping in hatred flocked to his candidacy?”

“That’s not to say that every American who voted for Donald Trump is a racist,” he added, qualifying his statement. “We do know that every racist in America voted for Donald Trump. That’s a problem.”

The New York Democrat has argued this point before, comparing the Trump administration to Jim Crow laws of the South and attempting to link the president with racism in a speech in February.

“This president has a responsibility to address the rise in hate crimes that have taken place on his watch, whether or not his election is directly connected to it,” Jeffries concluded.

Twitter users quickly responded to the congressman, calling him out on using the race card again to explain the Democratic Party’s woes.
