I was disgusted, but not surprised, at the latest racist rhetoric coming from President Trump. I did not need this new outrage to confirm what he stands for. I continue to shake my head in disbelief at the crowds of Americans applauding Trump’s behavior and gleefully shouting “Send her back!” at the latest rally. Why do people hold such hatred in their hearts for anyone different than they are?

Then there are the reluctant defenders of Trump who don’t like his behavior but cite the performance of their investments as a reason to support him. I ask you, when will you decide to put what is right ahead of your bank balance?
