Democrats need to connect Trump’s tax cuts for billionaires and corruption with his attacks on people of color, Muslims, and immigrants. Divide and conquer is an old playbook in this country. — PolitiTweet.org

Trump’s strategy: “The Democrats,” Steve Bannon said, "the longer they talk about identity politics, I got ’em. I want them to talk about racism every day. If the left is focused on race and identity, and we go with economic nationalism, we can crush the Democrats.” — PolitiTweet.org

Doesn’t really seem like the right moment to use Trump’s attacks on @IlhanMN to go after Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, but you do you. — PolitiTweet.org

The only reason he continues to be President is because corporate America and the Republican Party in Congress prefers tax cuts for their billionaire donors over human decency and the basic tenets of democracy. — PolitiTweet.org

Trump’s race war feeds his class war. Hatred, fear, and division to fuel a corrupt billionaire’s greed. Trump wants to hoard more wealth and power for those on top and defend every hierarchy in this country from movements for change. — PolitiTweet.org

Thinking about @IlhanMN + @RashidaTlaib’s families and children tonight — and the millions of Muslim kids, the black and brown kids, the poor kids, the queer kids, the immigrant kids, who go to bed every night knowing the President of our country absolutely doesn’t care about us. — PolitiTweet.org

Trump is again betting that his winning strategy is making race/religion/national identity the primary dividing lines of conflict between himself and Democrats. He could be right. Racism and xenophobia are powerful forces, Democrats need to directly take it on, like this: — PolitiTweet.org

Don’t underestimate how deep Islamophobia runs. In a 2015 poll by Brookings, 61% of Americans held unfavorable views of Islam. One-third of Democrats and nearly 60% of Republicans held unfavorable views of Muslims. https://t.co/rdNm3X7Jfa — PolitiTweet.org

My Muslim parents and their white neighbors can’t get affordable health care because Trump + the GOP would rather us all hate & fear each other so we don’t come together to make their billionaires donors pay their fair share for a better health care system like Medicare for All. — PolitiTweet.org

Racism is bread and butter for a lot of Americans. But Democrats have to explain how Trump’s race war is also a class war. When Trump can use racism and bigotry to turn working Americans of all backgrounds against each other, who wins? Corrupt billionaires like him. — PolitiTweet.org

James Baldwin on socialism and anti-racism: “The price of any real socialism here is the eradication of what we call the race problem...Racism is crucial to the system to keep black and whites at a division so both were and are a source of cheap labor." https://t.co/33rGR6CEQy — PolitiTweet.org
