‘The Racism In This #SOTU Is Off The Charts’: Internet Hammers Trump After He Attacked DREAMers During SOTU Address
Donald Trump, attempting to seem like he has a heart towards immigrants, said that he was willing to compromise on immigration. Then he decided to continue his speech and made himself seem even more racist.
Trump has been criticized by many for his anti-immigration agenda and during his State of the Union address, he proved his critics to be right.
“I am extending an open hand to work with members of both parties — Democrats and Republicans — to protect our citizens of every background, color, religion and creed,” Trump said.
He then added, “My duty, and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber is to defend Americans — to protect their safety, their families, their communities, and their right to the American Dream. Because Americans are dreamers too.”
Twitter users did not take kindly to Trump’s remark saying, “Americans are dreamers too.” Many of them took a shot at Trump and said this is “the new ‘All Lives Matter.'”
Take a look at some of the best tweets below:

“Americans are Dreamers too” – POTUS.
Basically the same idea as All Lives Matter. Just trying to discredit the other side and put white Americans ahead of everyone else. That’s not unity, that’s divisiveness. #SOTU

And why the hell not, let’s take a swipe at Dreamers, who are Americans in every sense but on paper: “Because Americans are dreamers, too.” #SOTU

"Americans are dreamers too" is the dumbest catchphrase ever. White people have been living their American dream since the day they sailed their asses over here. The only dream minorities had was to be free, and even that was asking for too much tf

You people know that when he says America and Americans, he means white people, right? He has just lumped Hispanics, #DACA, undocumented immigrants w/ a murderous gang. He said Americans are Dreamers too, that's like when white ppl say "All Live Matter" #SOTU #Trump #Racist

He had the odacity to say “Americans are dreamers too” … no one is trying to take American dreams away in the first place. This is not a competition about nationalities. This is about human beings who have the right to live their dreams as much as Americans do.
