Representative Sheila Jackson-Lee told the media that Trump is guilty of dog-whistle racism. A dog whistle in political terms is a phrase or set of codes that mean something to one group of people but seem meaningless to everyone else, for instance “((()))” is a common way anti-semitic individuals and groups mark out Jewish people “(((them)))”. Trump is not guilty of using dog whistles, Democrats claim that terms like illegal immigrant and “those people” are dog whistles when that just isn’t the case.
