Congressman: “Every racist in America voted for Donald Trump”

As reported by the Gateway Pundit, Representative Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) said that “every racist in America voted for Donald Trump” from the US House of Representative’s floor on Monday. Representative Jeffries also stated, “We’re wondering why were so many people who worship at the altar of white supremacy drawn to Donald Trump’s campaign?” He continued by rhetorically asking, “What was it about this individual that so many folks dripping in hatred flocked to his candidacy?” It was not clear how Representative Jefferies knows that every racist in America voted for US President Donald Trump or why he feels people are dripping in hatred.

Representative Jeffries also said, “This president has a responsibility to address the rise in hate crimes that have taken place on his watch, whether or not his election is directly connected to it.” It was not understood from his statement where and against whom these hate crimes are occurring. Representative Jeffries also omitted in his assessment what types of hate crime he was referring to.
