Criticizes Critical Race Theory

At a rally in Ohio

We need the Republican Congress to ban critical race theory. I had it banned through an executive order. They have to get it out of our schools and they have to ban it in our workplaces and our state and in federal agencies and in our military.

In an interview with Fox New’s Sean Hannity

I’ve said it many times and let me be clear again I condemn the kkk. I condemn all white supremacists. I condemn the proud boys. I don’t know much about the proud boys almost nothing but I condemn that. But he should condemn also Antifa. Antifa is a horrible group of people.

In a tweet, explaining that he had expanded a ban on racial sensitivity training to federal contractors

A few weeks ago, I BANNED efforts to indoctrinate government employees with divisive and harmful sex and race-based ideologies. Today, I've expanded that ban to people and companies that do business... ...with our Country, the United States Military, Government Contractors, and Grantees. Americans should be taught to take PRIDE in our Great Country, and if you don’t, there’s nothing in it for you!

In a tweet

This will further antagonize New York’s Finest, who LOVE New York & vividly remember the horrible BLM chant, ‘Pigs In A Blanket, Fry ‘Em Like Bacon. Maybe our GREAT Police, who have been neutralized and scorned by a mayor who hates & disrespects them, won’t let this symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street. Spend this money fighting crime instead!

In a speech after signing an extension to the paycheck protection program

Equal justice under the law must mean that every American receives equal treatment in every encounter with law enforcement regardless of race, color, gender, or creed. They have to receive fair treatment from law enforcement. They have to receive it. We all saw what happened last week. We can't let that happen. Hopefully George is looking down right now and saying, this is a great thing that's happening for our country. This is a great day for him. It's a great day for everybody. It's a great day for everybody. This is a great, great day in terms of equality.

Speaking from the White House

All Americans were rightly sickened and revolted by the brutal death of George Floyd. My administration is fully committed that, for George and his family, justice will be served. He will not have died in vain. But we cannot allow the righteous cries and peaceful protesters to be drowned out by an angry mob. The biggest victims of the rioting are peace-loving citizens in our poorest communities, and as their President, I will fight to keep them safe. I will fight to protect you. I am your President of law and order, and an ally of all peaceful protesters.

At an event on religious freedom during the United Nations General Assembly

I’ve appointed a special envoy to monitor and combat anti-Semitism. We’re standing up for almost 250 million Christians around the world who are persecuted for their faith. It is estimated that 11 Christians are killed every day for the following — I mean, just think of this: Eleven Christians a day, for following the teachings of Christ. Who would even think that’s possible in this day and age? Who would think it’s possible?

Before White House departure

What I’ve done for African Americans in two and a half years, no president has been able to do anything like it. Unemployment at the lowest level in the history of our country for African Americans — nobody can beat that. You look at poverty levels, they’re doing better than they’ve ever done before. So many things. Opportunity zones. Criminal justice reform — President Obama couldn’t get it done.

At the White House, making a statement on the violence in Charlottesville

Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs including the KKK, neo-nazis white supremacist and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans. We are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our Creator we are equal under the law and we are equal under our Constitution.

In a campaign rally at the Ziegler Building at the Washington County Fair Park & Conference Center in West Bend, Wisconsin

I’m asking for the vote for every African-American citizen struggling in our society today who wants a different and much better future. […] Jobs, safety, opportunity, fair and equal representation: We reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton which panders to, and talks down to, communities of color and sees them only as votes – that’s all they care about – not as individual human beings worthy of a better future.

In an interview with Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor, talking about Barack Obama and Black Lives Matter deepening racial divisions

It’s a very very sad situation and hopefully it can be healed. We have a divider as a president. He’s the great divider and I’ve said it for a long time. […] What I’m saying is they are not necessarily wrong. There are certain people where unfortunately that comes into play. [...] I have to say, I think 99.9 percent of the police do an incredible job in the country,” said Mr. Trump. “I’m a big fan of the police of this country.

How come Jon Stewart gets away with a very, very racist rant about Herman Cain? Nobody else could pull that off. Where is Rev. Jesse Jackson? Where is Rev. Al Sharpton? Where are all the critics that if somebody else did it, it would be a disaster?

In an interview with Marie Brenner

Those phonies! That club called me and asked me if they could have my consent to use part of my beach to expand the space for their cabanas! I said, ‘Of course!’ Do you think if I wanted to be a member they would have turned me down? I wouldn’t join that club, because they don’t take blacks and Jews.
