He is trying to incite a racial war in America (to Putin's absolute delight). Racism worked for him before and Trump's going to dance with the Klansman who brung him.
Trump instructed his aides to always have Diamond and Silk wear name tags whenever they're around him. "The downside in having black running mates to prove you're not racist is having to tell them apart," Trump nodded earnestly.
Let's say it straight out: Tom Cotton is a racist. He condones slave labor but assigns it no value. He would never have freed a single man, but he would use bigot law to punish anyone who even holds a different opinion.
Why is the president allowed to use his immense public power to attack private individuals out of infantile spite? Have we dispensed with the law altogether?
White Southerners are the most passive-aggressive people in the world and you don't even know when they are still fucking with you. I want to shout at people of color to facepalm themselves for not seeing the codes sometimes.
This country, north and south, was founded on slavery and removal. It is ingrained in the behaviors of Southerners. And it is tolerated and excused by nearly everyone. It's still in our blood. It is a disease, worse than any virus.
The words cut in stone found at the column are propaganda elevating the cause that put them in uniform and kept the memory of their "service" to The Lost Cause noble in their minds and in the minds of their descendants.
"Have you seen what the Antifa radicals have been doing to these helpless symbols of white supremacy? I mean, 'our heritage'? It's disgusting. They've thrown paint on them, pulled them down, even moved one into the corner of my office," Trump complained until being told he was pointing at Mike Pence.
So when the reporter asked Pence the question, “is it harder for black Americans to make in this country?” his rambling answer tells us what we already know. He is far too afraid to admit the truth, Yes, it is harder for African-Americans to make it in this country.
This paranoid rabble-rouser and dimwit have already done more to divide Americans than any hate-filled, filthy, denier on FOX's hotbed of virulent racism and mindless denial of decency and civility. Now he advocates more hate, with more bizarre and unreal fantasies to support it.
