obsequiousness toward Russian President Vladimir Putin, he's behind Joe Biden in national and battleground polls. His solution has been to dial up the racism.Trump has vilified the Black Lives Matter movement, equating it to hate.
He's championing Confederate statues and bases named after slaveowners and leaders of the 19th-century insurrection, and, today slammed Black NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace for complaining about what appeared to be a noose in his garage, demanding the driver apologize (ostensibly for complaining about racism).
