NYC’s Mayor Just Called Out Trump By Name For His Shameful Racism

Last week, a white supremacist left his home in Baltimore and traveled to New York City for the expressed purpose of killing black people. Before being apprehended by NYPD officers, he murdered Timothy Caughman, a 61 year-old New Yorker who was proud to proclaim “I love America” on Election Day last year.

Donald Trump, who has been so vocal about crimes involving Muslims or immigrants, responded to this tragedy with deafening silence. The president immediately came under fire for the sleight, which occurred as the Trump regime works to turn law enforcement efforts away from white supremacist attacks. The criticism intensified after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer refused to call the killing a hate crime.

Much to Trump’s chagrin, rather than going away, the backlash is heating up.

Today, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called Trump out for refusing to condemn the murder in his city and tied the non-action to the president’s history of turning a blind eye to violence in the name of the white supremacist movement:

Silence from our nation’s Commander-in-Chief on attacks against our fellow citizens is as dangerous as it is despicable. The president’s obsequiousness to his white nationalist base enables their violent acts and the hateful ideology they propagate.

Thankfully, we have leaders like Bill de Blasio to break the deafening silence.
