Donald Trump was certainly no wallflower before his Presidential run and you can always count on him to cut through the bullcrap rhetoric. Once as a guest on “Fox and Friends”, he was asked about Al Sharpton’s role in stirring racial tensions and endangering police departments that serve communities of color. Trump didn’t hold back. Trump characterized Al Sharpton as a professional “con man” who gets away with “murder”.
When asked to elaborate, Donald Trump mentioned that Al Sharpton is just acting for the cameras: “I live in New York and I know Al Sharpton very well. I’ve dealt with him many times over the years and he is a guy who I don’t believe really believes what he’s saying…he pretends he cares deeply.”
Trump continued to describe his disgust at Al Sharpton’s actions shortly after two NYPD police officers were executed in their patrol car. Days after the tragedy, Sharpton held a press conference where he complained about receiving death threats himself. In response to this, Trump said Al Sharpton was looking to cause “backlash” that would inevitably lead to “a very violent thing and a… dangerous thing for a lot of people.”
Trump nailed it. Of course, Al Sharpton is intent on making things worse. As long as there is the mere appearance of a race problem in America, Al Sharpton has a job, massive nationwide support, and a huge paycheck. Peace and calm do nothing for Al Sharpton’s bank account, popularity, or TV show bookings.
This is CLASSIC Trump right here! So glad he’s our President now.
