President-elect Donald Trump has always been a straightforward kind of guy who goes right to the point and speaks his mind. While guesting on “Fox and Friends”, he shared his thoughts about Al Sharpton’s attempts to create racial tensions and target police departments that serve communities of color. The President-elect didn’t mince his words when he described Sharpton as a professional “con man” who gets away with “murder”.
“I live in New York and I know Al Sharpton very well. I’ve dealt with him many times over the years and he is a guy who I don’t believe really believes what he’s saying…he pretends he cares deeply,” said Trump.
Trump exhibited his revolt towards Sharpton’s actions and brought up the case after a couple of NYPD cops were shot dead in their patrol vehicle, when Al Sharpton made a press conference. He then even stated that he himself had received threats to his life. A an answer to this, Trump stated that Sharpton was attempting to create “backlash” that will eventualy result in “a very violent thing and a…dangerous thing for a lot of people.”
Trump is right in every sense. Al Sharpton’s public image, heavy bank account, and TV show bookings all depend on the level of racial tensions in America, and even if there is the slightest chance to trigger violence by race, he won’t think twice to take advantage of this opportunity.
Sharpton’s unrestrained and rampant speeches have stemmed due to our country’s incompetent leader who cannot keep his dogs on a shorter leash, thus enabling them to spread their venomous, race-baiting political rhetoric wherever they please.
