I have always considered that a person’s actions define their character. Since taking office, Trump has continuously insulted people of color and issued racially provocative statements. He instituted a ban on Muslims, excluding his friends the Saudis. He described White Supremacists as “fine people” and has aligned himself with far-right nationalistic groups. He approved placing refugee children in cages and concentration camps along the border. Recently, Trump told 4 duly elected congresswomen to go back where they came from. Based on the aforementioned, how are the terms racist and evil not appropriate descriptions of his character?
