Trump’s History of Fighting Against Racism

Trump's History of Fighting Against Racism

( – Donald Trump has a long-standing record of speaking out against racism including repeated denouncements of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and other white supremacy groups. He also has a demonstrated history of supporting the preservation of fundamental human rights both at home and abroad.

Former All-American running back Herschel Walker spoke out about his 37-year friendship with Trump during a Sept. 30 interview with Fox News host Lou Dobbs. Walker confirmed he has seen him denounce racism “many times,” and was baffled as to why he has to do it “again and again.”

Conservative political columnist Benny Johnson tweeted a video montage showing Trump speaking out against the KKK and other white supremacist groups and individuals like former grand wizard David Duke.

As president of the United States, Trump has repeatedly spoken out against racism. For example, he condemned the KKK, white supremacists, and neo-fascist group the Proud Boys during an Oct. 1 phone interview aired live by Fox News host Sean Hannity.

President Trump and his administration issued a series of actions to combat racism to include the issuance of a Sept.4 memorandum ordering the heads of executive branch departments and agencies to discontinue divisive training on white privilege and critical race theory. On Sept. 22, he issued an executive order extending the prohibition to federal contractors and federal grant recipients.

On Sept. 14, the president issued a proclamation honoring Hispanic Heritage Month, and later that week he followed up with a proclamation honoring National Historically Black Colleges and Universities Week.

On Sept. 24, he extended his condolences to the family members and friends of Breonna Taylor; an unarmed black woman shot to death by Louisville, Kentucky, police officers during the execution of a search warrant.

Additionally, on Sept. 23 the Trump administration reaffirmed its commitment to the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, one of the world’s most important documents.

As Herschel Walker told Lou Dobbs the last day of September, judge the president on his actions. His record, as detailed above, speaks for itself.
