Criticism of Antifa Is ‘Donald Trump’s Appeal to Racism — CNN Analyst

Multiple accounts of a meeting President Donald Trump held with evangelical Christian leaders Monday night revealed that the president warned of "violence" from both Democrats and anti-fascist protesters if Republicans fail to retain control of Congress in the midterm elections. The theme here is, 'I'm Donald Trump and I'll protect you from the scary black people.' Antifa is widely perceived as an African American organization and this is just part of the same story of LeBron James and Don Lemon and Maxine Waters and the National Football League players and the UCLA basketball players.

"If they don't vote, we're going to have a miserable two years and we're going to have, frankly, a very hard period of time because then it just gets to be one election - you're one election away from losing everything you've got", he said in audio heard by The New York Times.

US President Donald Trump has warned that his policies will be "violently" overturned if the Democrats win November's mid-term elections.

According to Business Insider, Trump warned the audience that the November elections aren't just a referendum on him.

And coinciding with Kenyatta's meeting with Trump, a Financial Times story claiming that Trump had described Nigeria's Muhammadu Buhari as lifeless after their meeting in April made headlines in many African media outlets.

Trump also told the crowd that he "got rid of" the Johnson Amendment, which Trump claims limits the free speech of Christians.

US President Donald Trump listens to President Uhuru Kenyatta at the White House on August 27, 2018 in Washington, DC. Trump did a sign an executive order in May of 2017 which eased the restrictions of the Johnson Amendment, but he did not repeal it as only Congress has that power. Congressional efforts at overturning the laws have failed. Hello, Robert. Who said about me: He may not be the flawless human being, but he is the greatest leader for Christianity, ' Trump said.

The Times said a White House spokesman, Hogan Gidley, declined to expand on what the president meant.

'I had the great Robert Jeffress back there. Hello, Robert. Who said about me: "He may not be the flawless human being, but he is the greatest leader for Christianity", Trump said to applause and laughter. "This person is somebody that I like and I'm going to talk about it on Sunday".

Trump, meanwhile, for his part has his very own reasons to try to boost his reputation vis-à-vis Africa, said John Mukum Mbaku, an economist and Africa scholar at Weber State University.

"Little thing - Merry Christmas".

'The level of hatred, the level of anger is very unbelievable, ' Trump said.
