The ink was not even dry on Trump’s expansion of the travel ban when he was attacked with racist allegations by Democrats.
Leading the charge was none other than presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Trump the Racist
Democrats continue to use policies meant to keep this country safe from possible terror threats are racist policies of this administration.
It is no secret that terrorists are now using African nations as training grounds to regroup and train.
That being the case, the Trump administration has expanded its travel ban policy to include some of the bigger trouble spots in Africa.
The moment the announcement was made, Democrats looked for a microphone or their phone to accuse Trump of being racist.
Biden actually sent out several tweets to make this point…
Donald Trump's Muslim ban is a direct betrayal of America’s most fundamental freedom: religious freedom. And now he's adding more countries to his list of who's not welcome in America.
It's not who we are — and we'll prove that when we beat Trump this November and end the ban. pic.twitter.com/qdlU5P7MZQ

Trump further diminished the U.S. in the eyes of the world by expanding his travel ban. This new “African Ban,” is designed to make it harder for black and brown people to immigrate to the United States. It’s a disgrace, and we cannot let him succeed. https://t.co/oePD5eSAWY

This was a tack taken by several Democrat candidates as well as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
Warren sent out a tweet of her own…
Trump just expanded his racist, xenophobic Muslim Ban to ban 6 more countries—including Nigeria, the most populous nation in Africa.
Congress must pass the NO BAN Act. And if they don’t, I’ll reverse the Muslim Ban on the first day of my presidency. https://t.co/ZfcYfidaEz

Bernie Sanders, who calls Trump a racist at every opportunity, stated that the new policy was a “racist travel policy that dehumanizes immigrants and their families for [Trump’s] own political purposes.”
Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) stated, “With this latest callous decision, the President has doubled down on his cruelty and further undermined our global leadership, our Constitution and our proud heritage as a nation of immigrants.”
If Dems Had Their Way
If Dems were in power, we would have open borders right now, allowing in anyone from anywhere.
They seem to refuse to admit every country on this list has significant terrorist ties and either poses a threat to our country or have immigrants that simply want to come here to live off the system rather than contribute.
Trump’s policies are about both protecting the border AND protecting our economy, yet he is being portrayed as racist by Democrats.
That, however, is because the welfare of actual Americans and legal citizens is last on their list of priorities.
Remember that when you head to the booth on election day.
