Roland Martin: Trump’s Been Pushing the ‘Racial Resentment Buttons of White America’
ROLAND MARTIN, NEWSONE NOW: I do not want us to forget what Arpaio did. He racially profiled individuals. I’m not dealing with the politics. He defied a court order. That’s what he did. What Trump has been doing has been pushing the racial resentment buttons of white Americans from the elections to the present day. He was also in line with the birther that was racist and shameful, his attacks on President Obama.
Trump and Arpaio have yet to apologize for that. And what is even more shameful on these conservative Evangelicals who stand with Trump, who have not condemned the inhumane treatment by Arpaio, and that’s Paula White, that’s Jerry Fallwell Jr., that’s Ralph Reed, they are more focused on the p-r-o-f-i-t of the faith, not the p-r-o-p-h-e-t. Be prophetic voices who lead.
