Chris Matthews: Trump ‘Has Fully Embraced a Dark Anti-Immigrant Message’

‘Taking the fight back to him former President Obama today accused Trump of manufacturing a crisis at the border’

RUSH EXCERPT:

MATTHEWS: “The closing arguments in the run up to Tuesday’s elections have created a split screen. Democrats, aided by the star power of surrogates like former President Obama and Oprah Winfrey are concluding with a message of hope and calls for civility. At the same time, president Trump is the commander in chief fueling anger and resentment to turn out his base. As “The New York Times” puts it, the president has fully embraced a dark anti-immigrant message in the hope that stoking fear will motive voters to reject Democrats. Well, taking the fight back to him former President Obama today accused Trump of manufacturing a crisis at the border, asking voters to reject what he calls the politics of fear.”
