    Of course he is - there is so much evidence of it.  Consider this from a very conservative Never Trump political operative Rick Wilson who wrote "Everything Trump Touches Dies" or the ETTD syndrome.  Part of this will be simple examples and other parts will be a compare and contract with a true patriot President Ronald Reagan.

    -  Racial discrimination was a central theme of Trump's father, with whom Trump identifies with.  It led to FBI investigations (no wonder Trump hates the FBI) and lawsuits over his "no vacancies for blacks" housing policy. 

    - While a Republican like Dwight Eisenhower called out the National Guard to desegregate a conservative South, a Republican candidate Trump retweeted number racist tweets (e.g. WhiteGenocideTM) and post videos from the overtly racist British First fringe party.

    - It took two days and a ton of pressure for Trump to finally denounce (only to take it back two days later) the alt-right, neo-Nazis, the KKK, and other vocal anti-Semites who chanted "Jew will not replace us" as well as committed a terrorist murder with a car in Chancellorsville, VA.

    - Ronald Reagan denounced the Klan by saying "We don't want your support" while Trump couldn't say a bad thing about David Dukes support of his candidacy and drew a moral equivalency between the alt-right-neoNazis-white supremacists and those who opposed them in the streets. On the other hand, George H.W. Bush told Dukes to go to hell.

    - In 1984 Reagan said "In the party of Lincoln, there is no room for intolerance and not even a small corner for anti-Semitism or bigotry of any kind. Many people are welcome in our house, but not the bigots."  In comparison, Trump commemorates the International Holocaust Remembrance Day without any mention of anti-Semitism or Jewish victims of the Nazis.  I wonder how Ivanka and Jared felt.

    - Donald Trump wants immigrants from white Norway but not from black - well anywhere. Remember he thinks black countries are shithole countries.

    - When Donald and Ivanka came to one of his Atlantic City casinos, the bosses removed any blacks from the floor where they might be.

    Feel free to add your own list.

      Unfortunately for hate filled, envious Bozo the Circus Clown Trump, much of his RACISM has been caught on film as first hand evidence of his sick, angry discriminatory actions, evidence which will live in eternity as irrefutable proof despite what his dwindling number of followers say:

        Hate filled. You use that term, but most of the hate I see is coming from the left. As evidenced by your post.

          Seems to me, Live, that Jake wasn't speaking hate, he was just speaking the truth.

            Yeh. I get that such passes for civil discourse in the circles you frequent.

              So, are you saying the truth is not civil discourse.  Since Trump rarely tells the truth, that is why he is uncivil.

                Alright. I'll bite. Try this on for size and tell me if it seems civil, because it is truthful. I'm simply taking Jake's statement and turning it around, a bit; but the gist is the same.

                Unfortunately for booze filled or mentally deficient, envious, the looks like recently embalmed Nancy, much of her ignorant lies have been caught on film as first hand evidence of her sick, angry unhinged actions, evidence which will live in eternity as irrefutable proof despite what her dwindling number of followers say:

                Is that civil enough for you? It isn't for me, although it does not lack accuracy.

    Ah, yes. The ubiquitous racism argument. I've come to believe the real racists are the ones who find racism everywhere. The real racists are the ones who ignore everything except the parts they can decry as racism. The real racists are the ones who accept edited sound bites to support their racist views of everything and every one.

    You have to be a racist, to find racism at each and every turn.

    I don't think that acknowledging that Donald Trump has a history of racism dating back to the Central Park Five and probably before is equivalent to "finding racism at each and every turn."

    I don't understand what is so hard about recognizing that racism is not only pervasive in our society, but is bolstered and emboldened by our president.

    The man is not a good role model.  If it talks like a racist and acts like a racist it's probably a racist.
