Trump weighs in on Virginia scandals with claim blacks are ‘very angry at the double standard’


President Donald Trump on Sunday weighed in on the political scandal consuming Virginia by saying African Americans are ‘very angry at the double standard’ there.

The president did not elaborate on what he meant by a double standard. 

‘African Americans are very angry at the double standard on full display in Virginia!,’ he wrote on Twitter.

The state has been consumed by bomb shell after bomb shell involving Virginia’s three top Democrats embroiled in potentially career-ending scandals: their governor who was caught in a blackface scandal, their African American lieutenant governor who was accused of sexual assault and their state attorney general also revealed to have worn black face.

Trump’s White Evangelicals are Nostalgic for an American Past that Never Existed for Blacks and Others



In 2013, I received an email from Rev. Ray McMillan, the pastor of Faith Christian Center, a conservative evangelical and largely African American congregation in Cincinnati, Ohio.
