A Speech to the Nation on Race and Unity. Can Trump Pull it off?
After three years and six months of inciting hatred in America, of fueling toxic partisanship and dividing its citizens along political, racial, ethnic, religious and financial fortunes lines (and at a time when the American public is souring on his presidency,) Trump is reportedly considering delivering a speech to the nation on race and unity

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



UPDATE:

The American Urban Network is reporting  that senior advisor Stephen Miller, the architect of the nation’s most extreme and brutal immigration policies, including the Muslim ban and family separation, is writing Trump’s speech on race relations.

Trump could not have picked a better man to write this momentous speech as Dr. Hannibal Lecter is presently not available.

Original Post:

After royally screwing up the White House’s response to the police murder of George Floyd…

After tweeting “when the looting starts, the shooting starts”…

After threatening to “greet” demonstrators outside the White House with “ the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons [he has] ever seen”…

After unleashing federal troops armed with chemical agents on peaceful demonstrators outside the White House, so he could have his disastrous bible-toting photo-op in front of St. John’s church…

After threatening to deploy active duty military onto the nation’s streets…

After once again reigniting his feud with the NFL about a black athlete kneeling down during the national anthem to protest the very same racial injustices the nation is anguishing about today…

After three years and six months of inciting hatred in America, of fueling toxic partisanship and dividing its citizens along political, racial, ethnic, religious and financial fortunes lines (and at a time when   the American public is souring on his presidency, ) Trump is reportedly considering delivering   a speech to the nation on race and unity

Perhaps Trump will surprise us. Perhaps he will be sincere, empathic, understanding, considerate and, above all, honest. Perhaps he will, for once, speak from the heart.

Perhaps he can pull it off, albeit many believe there is not a president less qualified to lecture the nation on race and unity.

Others ask, “What is next. A speech on respecting women? On honesty? On moral character? On decency?”

We’ll see.

He'll either read from a teleprompter or speak from what is in his head.

We know how each of those sound and how both will be devoid of facts.

Honestly.... I think he'd do the GOP a big favor if he would just stay in the WH bunker....

Or he'll do both. 

While on TV we'll see Trump speaking from the teleprompter, struggling to read the words while tempted to go off script.  Once the speech is over, during interviews, we'll see Trump contradict his previous speech while denying he said anything in the first place.

Like every other politician including the left's lord and savior Barack Obama.

Sounds exactly like Biden.

Honestly.... I think he'd do the GOP a big favor if he would just stay in the WH bunker....

According to the polls Democrats seem to hang their hats on, Biden hiding in his basement seems to be working for them.

As for unification, no one could say anything at this point to bring the US together. The left's foot soldiers are on the streets, and either don't want to stop them, or can't.

No truer statement coming from someone who will fight unification at every turn and has all their life.

I can't recall the author, but.... “All progress begins with the brave, not the spineless coward.”

Ah, there is nothing like the feeling of a leader calling for "unity." A speech on "race relations!"
I recall one of the best speeches on unity Iv'e ever heard. It was a keynote address from 2004. Ironically enough, the man who made it went on to be one of the most divisive figures in US history.

Beware the empty words!

When it comes to your 'president' indeed, BEWARE THE EMPTY WORDS

That's all it has.

You think he'll quote Walter Headley again during the speech?

No.  He'll once again make it all about himself.

kind of hard to take anything in the article seriously after that giant lie about a Muslim ban which simply never existed.
