Actually, he pretty much has:Trump called for the execution of innocent black teens in the late ‘80s, rose to political prominence while pushing conspiracy theory that US’ 1st black president was secret Muslim from Africa, & defended white supremacists after racist violence in VA.— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) February 3, 2019
Maybe sit this one out. https://t.co/50soBIJUYF
The picture plays second fiddle to the proposed abortion law. Only in the next tweet does it become "terrible," but the racism issue goes unmentioned except for how it would have cost Northam the election.Democrat Governor Ralph Northam of Virginia just stated, “I believe that I am not either of the people in that photo.” This was 24 hours after apologizing for appearing in the picture and after making the most horrible statement on “super” late term abortion. Unforgivable!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 3, 2019
Would have been much worse if it didn't matter, right?
Oh, and the real reason for the second tweet:
Nothing the man speaks of isn't about him.Saying out loud something folks in Trumpland have said privately for a day. Gillespie distanced himself from Trump in that race. https://t.co/13YLWaJukw— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) February 3, 2019
