    Trump on white nationalism: Not a rising threat

    Trump on white nationalism: Not a rising threat - CNN Video

    President Donald Trump says he does not see white nationalism as a rising threat around the world following an attack targeting Muslims in New Zealand that killed at least 49 people.
    Not a rising threat. Except FBI and such have stated it is rising threat.

    Why would Donald Trump see White Nationalism as a threat?

    Hard for a man who partially relies on their votes to consider or admit they're a threat.

    Islamaphobia has been a way for White Nationalists/Supremacists to tap back into the mainstream after a long vacation from it.

    Trump went out of his way to appeal to these people, not dog whistling, but megaphoning.

    Not subtle in the least.

    He appeals to these people and while he's not ultimately responsible for things like Christchurch or Quebec City... He absolutely appeals to people who are or those who sympathize with people who commit such acts and he wants to appeal to them and he made absolutely no secret about it.

    Trump is coming out with a designer line of Tiki-torches made in China.

    /s


    Trump makes Republicans choose between him or their principles. The loyalty tests never ever end, and the choice shouldn’t even be difficult.

    Of course when he is Impeached, indicated or loses the election he is counting on them as one of his factions to take up arms and declare him the king of the world.

    He is as we say up North East. "Quite the boy".

    From what I understand many WS charged are done under acts aside from terrorism. Not that they were not involved in probable terror attacks, DA says, got them firm on this, severe sentence in jail
    Resources are tight, and they do not drill down far enough nor assign appropriate resources. That takes money, funds directed by various agencies.

    And that comes from Washington

    ISIS and foreign terror, home grown terror recruits charges/convictions gets more dollars and excellent press.

    Meanwhile WS is not given the attention as the top internal US threat for domestic terrorism.

    The WS threat has been known for years, stats show the threat is there.

    And yes it will come back to bite.

    Trump sees it as a great gift, a tool that he plans to use to get himself reelected: disruption at the Democrat convention, harassment at nominee campaign rallies. I can see it like a vision.
