O’Rourke: These Are White Men Motivated by the Kind of Fear that This President Traffics In

‘The mosque in Victoria, Texas, was burned to the ground on the same day that President Trump signed his order attempting to ban Muslim travel to the United States of America’

EXCERPT:

O'ROURKE: "Well, so let’s focus on the problem that the FBI director has called out to members of Congress and to this country. We have a problem with white nationalist terrorism in the United States of America today. So I don’t want to confuse people about what is going on or use a hypothetical about what if this was somebody else from a different background or profile. These are white men motivated by the kind of fear that this President traffics in. The mosque in Victoria, Texas, was burned to the ground on the same day that President Trump signed his order attempting to ban Muslim travel to the United States of America. When he says after Charlottesville that Klansmen and white supremacists and neo-Nazis are very fine people, the commander-in-chief is sending a very public signal to the rest of this country about what is permissible and in fact even what he encourages to happen. So let’s connect the dots here on what is happening and why it is happening and who is responsible for this right now.”
