    Agree up to a point. Couple thoughts on your theory: first, I think his demonizing of immigrants, legal or not, has a clear purpose in his mind, in that it appeals or he thinks it appeals to part of his base. While he is not a student of history, his comments reflect periods and politicians in times past that recur every few generations going back to pre-Civil War Times. In every area of immigration I know of, he is making it harder on newcomers. Second, I often mention here his spreading of false information about black on white homicide from an apparently non existent group. What other than malicious intent would cause him to state that something like 80% of white homicide victims came at the hands of blacks? The FBI stats are somewhere in the area of 12%, tho I haven’t seen the source recently so I may be a bit off. But we generally kill within our own racial groups.

    Then I remember that he has seriously screwed over large swaths of his voters here in the midwest, so I try to be optimistic that the three improbable states he barely won in 2020 (including mine) will go back to the blue column.
    Given the current crop of Democratic candidates....

    I miss Bush. At least he was a decent human being.

    Trump Assails Elijah Cummings, Calling His Congressional District a Rat-Infested ‘Mess’

    WASHINGTON — President Trump lashed out at a leading African-American congressman on Saturday, calling him “a brutal bully” who represents a Baltimore-based district that has become a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess” where “no human being would want to live.”


    Mr. Trump’s attack on Representative Elijah E. Cummings, a Democrat from Maryland and leading critic of the president, parroted a segment that aired earlier in the morning on “Fox & Friends.” The president suggested that the congressman was a hypocrite for criticizing conditions in migrant detention centers at the southwestern border when his own district is blighted. Mr. Trump also made a vague and unsubstantiated insinuation of corruption.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Once again, Trump attacked a Black member of Congress. Let me just say, that Elijah Cummings is one of the most respected man in Washington if not the most respected man in Congress. Elijah Cummings isn't the only member of Congress that voted for impeachment, but he may be the only Chairman of a Congressional Committee to do so. It's noted that Trump didn't rail on any of the white members of Congress via Twitter.

    Victor Blackwell gave an emotional response, illustrating Trump's knack for using 'ping' words such as 'infested' to appeal to his racist base. Anyone that defends this immoral, unpatriotic, morally bankrupt president is on the ugly side of history.

    Humble Pi:

    Assail or attack does not equate to assault, so your title threw me for a moment, but President Trump is once again race-baiting and denigrating a whole city and perhaps a whole state. He may be America's president and his office may require us to respect it but the office holder himself is a vile and craven man in his public comportment.

    Cheers?

    "But we generally kill within our own racial groups."

    That's because even in diverse cities, racial groups are still geographically segregated. Most people are killed by someone they know which usually means somebody local.

    That 12% figure of when whites are killed by a black person(s) is about the same as the % of the black population and is how it usually tracks. That is therefor not out of proportion.
