Trump Calls Bloomberg A 'TOTAL RACIST' For Saying 'Minorities' Commit The Most Crimes

President Trump and his campaign team on Tuesday went all out accusing former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg of being a "racist" for talking about minority crime rates.

In a speech given to the Aspen Institute in 2015 defending stop-and-frisk, Bloomberg said:
"Ninety five percent of your murders, and murderers, and murder victims, fit one M.O. You can just take the description, Xerox it, and pass it up to all the cops. They are male, minority, sixteen to twenty-one. That's true in New York, that's true in virtually every city in the union. And that's where the real crime is, you've got to get the guns out of the hands of the people that are getting killed. So you got to be wondering, spend the money, put a lot of cops in the street. Put those cops where the crime is, which means in the minority neighborhoods. So one affect, one of the unintended consequences is, people say, Oh my God, your arresting kids for marijuana, they're all minorities. Yes that's true. Why, because we put all the cops in the minority neighborhoods, yes that’s true. Why we do it? Because that’s where all the crime is. And the way you should get the guns out of the kids hands is to throw them against the wall and, and frisk them. Then they start, they say I don't want to, I don't want to get caught. They may still have a gun, but they leave it at home."
A clip of Bloomberg's speech went viral Tuesday on Twitter and President Trump, Don Jr. and other "conservatives" jumped on it to try and damage his presidential candidacy.

"WOW, BLOOMBERG IS A TOTAL RACIST!" Trump wrote Tuesday in a now-deleted tweet.

"Omg! Leaked audio of Mike Bloomberg talking about the high crime rates among urban minorities," Don Jr. tweeted. "'And the way to get the guns out of the kids hands is to throw them up against the wall and frisk them' #BloombergIsARacist."

"So a big test for [Bloomberg Politics] today," Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted. "Will they write their boss is a complete racist. This video is horrible."

TPUSA's Charlie Kirk also joined in the fray, pushing for Bloomberg to be canceled for saying that under stop-and-frisk "we disproportionately stop whites too much and minorities too little."

What's so funny about this is Trump supported stop-and-frisk in 2016 when he ran as the "law and order" candidate (of course, he passed Jared Kushner and the Koch brothers' "criminal justice reform" after getting in office):

"Sadly, the overwhelming amount of violent crime in our major cities is committed by blacks and hispanics-a tough subject-must be discussed," Trump tweeted in 2013.

Now that Trump is president and in a position to actually address the issue he's decided the subject mustn't be discussed and he'll call anyone who does a "TOTAL RACIST!"
