Every time President Trump gets in trouble he falls back on race identity politics, and the Democrats fall for it without fail.
Let’s be clear, those Confederate statues are coming down, no matter what Trump says. That’s been going on for a while now. It’s largely being done at the local level, and Democrats could just sit back and let the arc of history take its course.
Instead, they jumped.
We still live in a democracy where free speech is supposed to be tolerated.
