Meanwhile, Donald Trump…
After a campaign launched on denigrating Mexican immigrants as criminals and “rapist”s and some “good people…”
After just announcing the repeal of DACA…
After continuing to push his agenda for a nonsensical border wall…
He had the gall to tweet:
God bless the people of Mexico City. We are with you and will be there for you.

In what way are YOU with the people of Mexico City??
Sorry, but your condolences and empty promises mean nothing. Delete your account, racist.
