We are all aware that Donald Trump is an outspoken and forthright person who does not bother saying things that do not need to be said. That is why when appearing on “Fox and Friends,” Trump expressed his opinions about Al Sharpton and how he had gone to great lengths to instigate racial hostility and animosity throughout the country. Trump even went so far to call Sharpton a “con man” who has gotten away with “murder.”
“I live in New York and I know Al Sharpton very well. I’ve dealt with him many times over the years and he is a guy who I don’t believe really believes what he’s saying…he pretends he cares deeply,” said Trump.
Trump exhibited his revolt towards Sharpton’s actions and brought up the case after a couple of NYPD cops were shot dead in their patrol vehicle, when Al Sharpton made a press conference. He then even stated that he himself had received threats to his life. A an answer to this, Trump stated that Sharpton was attempting to create “backlash” that will eventualy result in “a very violent thing and a…dangerous thing for a lot of people.”
Trump is right in every sense. Al Sharpton’s public image, heavy bank account, and TV show bookings all depend on the level of racial tensions in America, and even if there is the slightest chance to trigger violence by race, he won’t think twice to take advantage of this opportunity.
Sharpton’s unrestrained and rampant speeches have stemmed due to our country’s incompetent leader who cannot keep his dogs on a shorter leash, thus enabling them to spread their venomous, race-baiting political rhetoric wherever they please.
