“a program to combat racism”
synonyms: racial discrimination, racialism, racial prejudice/bigotry, xenophobia, chauvinism, bigotry, bias, intolerance; More

With that in mind, look at the actual Tweet President Trump made on Sunday, June 14 that is drawing all the outrage over his “racism”:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how.it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

Where, in any of that, is even a mention of race?  The President is criticizing governments which, as leader of the most successful government in the history of earth, he has a right to do.  But because they don’t want to try and defend the failed governments and, especially in the case of Islam, their barbaric policies, they just drop back and call it racism, knowing full well most people won’t even read the actual Tweet or give the matter any critical thought.

The president is right on this, and Republicans should be standing up for the core of his message and not running away from it.
