In his first campaign stop today, after accepting the Republican Party nomination last night, at an airport near Manchester, New Hampshire, President Donald Trump said, that “radical Democrats” and news organizations are tearing the country apart.
“There’s so much racial hatred, and it’s put there by CNN, by MSDNC,” he said, invoking his nickname for the SNBC. “They stoke the flames, and they know it,” he said. “The good news is their ratings aren’t great.”
In the meantime, thousands converged on Washington to demand long-lasting change to end systemic racism as the country reels from police killings of Black people this year that have fueled nationwide protests.
The Get Your Knee Off Our Necks Commitment March on Washington, organized by Rev. Al Sharpton, marked the 57th anniversary of the historic March on Washington where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have A Dream” speech.
The New Hampshire visit by Trump had been scheduled in July but was canceled at the last minute amid threats of bad weather that never materialized.
Trump lost New Hampshire to Democrat Hillary Clinton four years ago by just 2,736 votes. He will be campaigning heavily in every state possible in the coming 60 days before the election.
