Sharpton: Trump Appealing to ‘White Supremacy’

Wednesday on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, race activist and MSNBC host Al Sharpton said President Trump is appealing to “basic bigotry” and “white supremacy.”

“As we mark today Juneteenth Day, the frightening thing we see is a kind of regress this country has made by having a president who has sold his presidency and the reelection for it on the basis of us-against-them, racism, and a real, real, divide between people based on their income,” Sharpton said.

“But don’t underestimate him because he’s appealing… to some basic bigotry, and bias and insecurity and white supremacy. If we are not careful it may be an old show, but it could bring us back to an old place that we don’t want to go,” he added.
