Trump is so racist that his wife is a foreigner and his daughter converted to Judaism since her husband is a Jew!

That seems slightly anti-racist to me.

But that's like saying: "I have an Asian friend, so I can't be racist" or "I'm black, so I can't be racist"

Anybody can be racist, regardless of one's associations. It depends on what one does

(Also just to note, "foreigner" is not a race or ethnicity. For ex: a white caucasian is a white caucasian no matter the nationality)

The stupid thing about that too is that Puerto Rico is part of the US. They all have US passports, they are Americans.

Err no, you are putting up your own comment and inferring that I said it.

I didn’t!

I am stating facts as to the US President’s attitude to different religions and foreigners.

And that seems to me to be anti-racist.

Trump: A history of inflammatory and 'racist' statements

Pfffft! Trump has done more to help all U.S. citizens and legal residents regardless of race than Obama ever did.

Instead of Commander-in-Chief, they are now calling him the Racist-in-Chief.

Melania Trump is a white European has both her parents are too. "Judaism" isn't a race, it's a religion. Most Jews in Israel are white from Europe. There are groups of Black Jews from Africa but they are small numbers. Once welcomed in Israel but no longer the case. The new National Law of Israel which became law last year is racist and apartheid in content.

Been to Israel numerous times on business and an incident like that one are the few exceptions, not the overall rule.

American leftists use the word "racist" like "ketchup-holics" use ketchup.

In other words, they think they can put it on anything.

And I guess American racists use the word "leftist" like ...

What angered me most was his description of their "original" countries, of which I'm fairly sure he knows very little.

The current occupant of the White House is an equal opportunity offender. As an individual with a massive inferiority complex, insulting others is a defense mechanism.
