Birtherism. "You lie." Radical obstructionism. "Top priority" making Obama a one term President. Holding economy hostage over debt ceiling. Pointless govt shutdowns. Sending a letter to Iran saying Obama didn't speak for the USA. Hyperbolic criticism while Obama overseas. Etc Etc

I have been pretty polite about this and so have other American Jews. But you really have to leave us out of your racist talking points. You are not helping us, you are not helping society, you are not helping Israel. Your racism is your thing and we are not your shield.

You are a racist disgrace. And shockingly ignorant too. In normal times, you would be PNGed for this. Ambassador Cui, I expect better of you and your team. Please do the right thing and send him home.

Trump launched his political brand 8 years ago saying the first African American President was born in Africa. It has always been about racism, and the fact that this has ever been a controversial thing to say is part of the problem.

Since our founding, people have come to America from all over the world, and changed it for the better, because they left places where leaders said things like this.

Sherrod Brown, talking before 2020 candidate forum: "I called Donald Trump a racist, because he was, and he is. And I won the swing state of Ohio by 7 points. Elections aren't about some 'electability' question. They're about the question, whose side are you on?"
