During one of the most contentious times in our country, a time when our nation is reeling from Friday’s and Saturday’s events in which neo-Nazis, the KKK, and the alt-right came out in droves to march and chant Nazi slogans like “blood and soil” before one of them rammed his car into a group of counter-protesters, killing one and leaving 19 more injured, the president spent his morning on social media without mentioning the tragedy.
Of Trump’s nine tweets and retweets on Wednesday morning, only one even related to those incidents. Harlan Hill, a political consultant and political commentator, dismissed the outcry against Trump’s very late denunciation of those white supremacists and his painting of the counter-protesters as equally culpable. Hill believes Trump has said and done enough, and Trump agreed by retweeting his sentiments.
Amazon is doing great damage to tax paying retailers. Towns, cities and states throughout the U.S. are being hurt – many jobs being lost!
Twitter, however, did not agree. In numerous comments to Trump’s tweets, the most talked-about topic was not Luther Strange, or Trump’s hated Amazon, or Kim Jong Un. The topic, instead, was Charlottesville and Trump’s response.
