Last night, Donald Trump spoke about the legacy of the Democratic Party. “I will not accept, and neither will you, a future in which children, think of this, children of color – any color – in this country are not fully included in the American dream,” Trump said. “Remember and most people don’t know this: the Republican Party, right? You know what I’m going to say, right? The Republican Party is the party of Abraham Lincoln. Not bad. Not bad. It’s also the party of freedom, equality and opportunity. People have forgotten it so long now. It is the Democratic Party that is the party of slavery, the party of Jim Crow, and the party of oppression.”
The media went nuts, of course. But every element of this is true.
