No I don’t think Trump was calling white suprematists good people, he was clearly talking about people protesting the removal of statutes, and he did so because that was “his side” of the political arguement. But also on that side we’re some truly ugly and unAmerican people in the Nazi and white supremasist groups. But his ego being as big as it is just couldn’t do what a true leader should have done and United the country in opposition to that shit. He just had to direct a spotlight at his enemies “antifa” and conflate the issue. I don’t actually think Trump is racist. I think he is an elitist who lives in his own bubble. He has an extraordinary ego which drives most of his decisions and when it comes to race issues or human rights or minorities he is just indifferent unless he has use something to his advantage.
