Donald Trump has stirred up quite some controversy after countlessly failing to condemn white supremacy while attacking a black athlete for practicing his right to peacefully protest.
Trump’s critics believe he is a racist and cite his actions to prove it. On the other hand, Trump and his supporters say otherwise and that this past weekend’s “anthem tantrum” spectacle has nothing to do with race.
But, according to the New York Times, it was definitely about race.
The report states that Trump and his aides “freely admit that he is engaged in a culture war on behalf of his white, working-class base.”
The Times’ Maggie Haberman and Glenn Thrush, who wrote the report, stated that Trump is “determined to win” the war he believes “was foisted upon him by former President Barack Obama and other Democrats.”
