Rep. Pressley Blames Trump for Rise of Hate Crimes

Rep. Ayanna Pressley declared in a House hearing on Wednesday that President Trump is responsible for the supposed rise of white supremacy in the United States.

“There is not a single doubt in my mind that the growing number of hate crimes taking place in this country are a byproduct of the hateful rhetoric being spewed regularly by the current occupant of our White House,” said Pressley.

“The administration has emboldened white nationalism, white supremacy, and far-right extremism including anti-Semitism and xenophobia, all while suggesting these groups do not represent a growing threat to our communities and national security,” she added.
