I’d say to my friends in DC going along with Trump. Imagine how this video of the President leading a white mob in a “Send Her Back” chant targeting a black refugee is going to look in your kids high school government/history classes. This hatred has got to be stopped.

Warning to my fellow Democrats: It’s dangerous to assume Trump’s voting base has maxed out: plenty of racist haters who didn’t bother to vote in 2016 could be whipped up into re-electing him in 2020. We need to get every last genuine patriot to vote against Trump in 2020.

I have a golden rule not to do 1930s comparisons: but still, the sight of this, while migrants are held in inhuman internment camps & children separated from parents, amidst rising far right violence, is bloody terrifying.

And this is the problem with fighting a shameless bigot like Trump. He’ll constantly oblige his opponents to act in ways that are morally essential, but which are politically fraught. Impeachment is the obvious example

To be clear and to avoid confusion: of course Democrats were right to condemn Trump’s racism. It was their moral duty. Just don’t think Trump is unhappy that they did so. This is a battle he wants to fight

Trump's race-baiting is disgusting, but there is method to his malice. My piece

What has it come to in the Labour Party when the only way Labour peers feel they can communicate with their leader ⁦⁩ is to pay to take out an advert in ⁦⁩! No major party has ever been this dysfunctional
