The former US President Barack Obama prompts everyone to avoid any leaders’ position toward racism after the deaths of 31 while mass shooting.
Herewith, Obama did not mention the names of officials, and his any remarks have appeared after Trump’s attempts to ignore criticism that his “anti-immigrants rhetoric” had “fuelled violence”. All former president’s commentaries hit the acting US President.
“We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments; leaders who demonize those who don’t look like us, or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as sub-human, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people,” Obama tweeted.
Obama said Trump cannot be in the US politics as “it’s time for the overwhelming majority of Americans of goodwill, of every race and faith and political party, to say as much – clearly and unequivocally.”
The Atlantic supported Obama noting that he “still sounds like a president”.
Actually, it is not the first critics towards Trump by Obama. He has recently commented on Trump’s respond to the fatal attack while a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville.
“We’re supposed to stand up to discrimination, and we’re sure as heck supposed to stand up clearly and unequivocally to Nazi sympathizers,” he said.
Besides, in Trump’s opinion, such ideological movements as racism, bigotry and white supremacy “must be defeated,” paying more attention to the cooperation between government agencies, filing the laws against the “glorification of violence”.
