For Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, it’s “really hard” for him to not view Donald Trump supporters as racist.
During an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union, the 2020 presidential hopeful criticized Trump’s rhetoric and his behavior in the aftermath of massacres in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.
Host Jake Tapper started off by saying, “You said to me last week that you thought President Trump was a white nationalist. I just wonder, sir, President Trump won your home state of Texas by nine points.” He then asked, “Almost 63 million Americans voted for him. Do you think it is racist to vote for President Trump in 2020?”
It took O’Rourke a while to respond.
He then said, “I think it’s really hard.”
“I think it’s really hard after everything that we’ve seen from his time as a candidate in 2016 to his repeated warnings of invasions to his repeated calls to send them back,” O’Rourke declared. “Sending back people who are U.S. citizens, sending back people who were born in this country.”
O’Rourke continued with his assertions that Trump is supposedly a bigot.
His description of white nationalists and klansmen and neo-Nazis as very fine people. His warnings of Muslims as being somehow inherently defective and attempting to ban them from entry into this country, and his transgender troop ban and his attack on anyone who does not look like or pray like or love like a majority of the country.
O’Rourke then asserted that Trump is “dangerous to the future of America and will destroy what makes us so unique.”
The former Congressman from El Paso has made it a habit to call Trump a white supremacist. He recently told MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace that Trump is making it “very clear” he is a white supremacist.
“He dehumanized those who do not look and pray like the majority of people here. He said I wish we had more immigrants from Nordic countries because those from Haiti bring AIDS, those from Africa are sh—— nations,” O’Rourke stated.
Although O’Rourke has been slipping in the polls lately, the recent El Paso shooting has given him a golden opportunity to politicize the incident and put himself in the spotlight.
In times when virtually all left-wing outlets are calling Trump a racist, it’s simply too hard for presidential candidates like O’Rourke to pass up an opportunity to lash out against Trump.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
