Trump is well known for promoting white nationalism, supporting white nationalists, and being a white nationalist.

At least he is right up until the point when one of them follows through, anyway.

Trump himself cleared this up:

People say the most terrible things about me. They’re saying I claimed Mexican rapists are invading our country to steal our freedom. Can you believe that? No – don’t google it. Hey! Can we get this guy’s phone off him? Reading my tweets back to me is fake news!

Still, though – it wouldn’t hurt to just take the fucking guns away and see if that helps, right? And if the problem is mentally ill people, why is the NRA so adamant about the right to sell guns to mentally ill people? And why aren’t we doing anything to fix this mental health epidemic that’s allegedly at fault here!?
