WaPo’s Olorunnipa: Trump’s ‘White Power’ Tweet Was Blatant, It’s Not a Dog Whistle

‘It’s part of a long pattern and practice of this president putting out racist comments’

RUSH EXCERPT:

OLORUNIPPA: “When the Republican of South Carolina went on TV and said the president should take it down the president decided that this was too much of a problem. And he decided to take it down. Now, I think there’s no more dog whistles. This is blatant at this point. Shouting out white power. It’s part of a long pattern and practice of this president putting out racist comments from his supporters from his own rhetoric.”
