Mulvaney is quietly “building an empire for the right wing

The racism of Donald Trump
Donald Trump is good at something. He is one of the best at racism I have ever seen and I hail from the South. There are many Republicans "sickened by President Donald Trump’s racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen — but they still won’t criticize him publicly. The House members are Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). T-rump actually said they should...
“go back to the crime-infested places from which they came.” All four congresswomen are American citizens.
But this is the most tragic part of his reaction, a source said Trump believes his racist attacks on the women are a winning political strategy that will help him win reelection in 2020. Does that tell you something about his core base estimated to be around 30 million? A majority must be racist, based on his remark. Even with my southern upbringing, it is near impossible to fathom that kind of thought in 2019. How could any person of color ever consider voting for this imbecile?

House condemns Trump's racist tweets...


And this story is only an extension of the above. Another writer, Alex Henderson, writing for AlterNet says Trump's statement about...
"four congresswomen of color to go back to the countries they originally came from, it was obviously a rally-the-base strategy designed to appeal to the so-called 'patriotism' of his far-right supporters."
There's that Trump base again with Henderson reconfirming the fact that a large number of these followers are racist. And no one, including the moron in the White House who made the statement, seems to have any qualms about the fact that this is a tragic reflection of what this country is all about. According to presidential historian Jon Meacham...
“What the president has done here is yet again — I think he did it after Charlottesville, and I think he did it, frankly, when he was pushing the birther lie about President Obama — he has joined Andrew Johnson as the most racist president in American history.”

Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney looks sleazy and he has repeatedly fulfilled this likeness in both Congress and in his job with the number one sleaze, Donald Trump. But Jessica Corbett of Common Dreams muses that...
"Mulvaney is quietly building an empire for the right wing” and pushing Cabinet members to impose a radical and rapid deregulation agenda across the federal government."
A former So. Carolina congressman, deeply steeped in the Tea Party that eschews its racist values, he now works in the White House and is one...
"who has built what one senior administration official called 'his own fiefdom' centered on pushing conservative policies — while mostly steering clear of the Trump-related pitfalls that tripped up his predecessors by employing a 'Let Trump be Trump' ethos."
No control, just what the Oval Office lunatic craves. But Politico says the honeymoon is over, "snapping at his acting chief of staff with some frequency, and expressing greater frustration with him than usual," and as Trump’s third chief of staff in less than two-and-a-half years, the writing is on the wall. It will happen, hopefully, before Mulvaney can spread more Tea Party propaganda.
