Sharpton: Trump Has Made Racial Intolerance ‘Vogue Again’ — His ‘Demagoguery’ Is Dividing the Country

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” network host Al Sharpton said President Donald Trump had caused a “racial divide” in America by making “intolerance become vogue again.”

Sharpton said, “[I] think what people really don’t understand, for those of us who grew up in the King movement and the generation after King, is that we mark the 50th anniversary with the challenges that we have a president that has made this kind of racial divide and intolerance become vogue again because when you look at what Donald Trump is doing around questions of people of color, Mexicans, blacks, Muslims, he has reintroduced what Dr. King’s life was against.”

Later in the segment, he added, “Is he going to keep playing this kind of racial demagoguery that he is playing to a crowd but dividing a country? It’s King day. I wonder, Mr. President, can you find at least the moral strength to memorialize Mr. King and what he stood for?”
