Democratic New York Congressman Hakeem Jeffries went off on a tirade during House proceedings on Monday, ranting about white supremacy and hate crimes being caused by the Trump presidency.
“We’re wondering why were so many people who worship at the altar of white supremacy drawn to Donald Trump’s campaign?” Jeffries questioned. “What was it about this individual that so many folks dripping in hatred flocked to his candidacy?”
“That’s not to say that every American who voted for Donald Trump is a racist,” he backtracked “We do know that every racist in America voted for Donald Trump.”
Jeffries finished by saying that, “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.”
