Dear Editor:

Mainstream media without exception accuses President Trump of racism and bigotry without truthful examples. They say he's racist because he's said some illegal aliens have committed rape and murder, which is absolutely true. That statement says nothing about race but about criminal activity. Being here illegally is also a crime. He's repeatedly said he's for legal immigration and for protecting women and children from sex/slave trafficking at the border. These statements are ignored because they don't fit the liberal narrative to mislead their listeners.

We've repeatedly heard the left decry President Trump's statement about the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, as condoning white supremacy because he didn't immediately condemn the actions that resulted in a woman's death. He didn't make a judgment until he had gotten a full report on what actually transpired. CNN, Washington Post and other recipients of lawsuits from Nicholas Sandmann probably wish they had withheld their knee-jerk false reporting until they got all the information now too.

After getting reports on Charlottesville, President Trump stated: "As I said on Saturday, we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of bigotry, hatred and violence. It has no place in America. And as I have said many times before, no matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws; we all salute the same great flag; and we are all made by the same almighty God. We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence. We must discover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans. Racism is evil, and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans. We are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our creator, we are equal under the law, and we are equal under our constitution. Those who spread violence in the name of bigotry strike at the very core of America."

MSM and libs are finally, albeit reluctantly, admitting violent riots rather than peaceful protests, but it's still all Trump's fault. Proverbs 10:11: "The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life, but the mouth of the wicked conceal violence."
