Republican Rep. Byron Donalds is calling out the left for continually using race as a political tactic to further their agenda. During a recent interview, the Florida representative said that Democrats have used race to help “weaponize” their arguments, a tactic that has worked shockingly well for the party. Donalds also took the time to blast those claiming President Trump is a white supremacist, pointing to the millions of Black and Hispanic Americans who cast votes for the Republican.
Fox News reports:
“You Black Americans and you have Hispanic Americans who voted for Donald Trump, who support Donald Trump as well, so, I think that this lying is something the left always does,” Donalds told “Fox & Friends.”
Donalds said that the rioting at the Capitol was “wrong” and to claim that President Trump is a “White supremacist” is “equally as wrong.”
“They always try to bring race into something in order to weaponize their arguments, to make people just frankly be quiet, to shut up and to sit down,” Donalds said.
In the interview, Rep. Donalds touched on the blatant double standard behind Twitter’s decision to ban President Trump saying the move was obviously political.
Donalds went on to say, “It’s very very clear that if you have a dissenting political speech from the conservative side of the aisle from the right, quote-unquote, in America, you are supposed to be quiet, you are supposed to be removed from the public square, but, the left can foment riots, they can do just about anything that they want.”
Last week, Twitter permanently banned President Trump from the platform he most used to communicate with Americans. At the time of his suspension, Trump had over 88 million followers making him among the six most-followed accounts on the platform.
