The second most shocking aspect of an episode that would shake any other administration is that the president knows he can trade such a basic tactic because he will not pay a price in a republican party covered with his hot political base.
Many MP voters and lawmakers are uncomfortable with Trump's behavior and feelings. But most are pleased with the ideological leadership of his presidency that they are ready to close their eyes to such behavior, making it a useful political weapon as it seeks to conduct clear grassroots activity in 2020
Democratic MPs – the president did not name the "progressive" in his tirade – Trump stressed that his presidency had used fanaticism as a lever of power and made it a fact of the political life of the 21
st century more than half a century after the peak of the civil rights era. Using the most honorable position of the nation to make such unambiguous racist statements highlights how the presidency, which is angry with anger, fear and identity policy, lacks borders. The Nadiviest split between white, rural America and the increasingly diverse population is courted by the Democrats. He risks segregating divisions that will take years to heal. By telling the four women – three of whom were born in the United States – to come back from where they came, Trump uses the most basic and crude racial mockery. He also implicitly rejects the motto written on the American Large Print – E Pluribus Unum – by many. He suggests that every American who is not white and born has no place in the country.
In less polarized times, Trump's tweets may have been a disqualifying and scandalous political turn. But Trump has falsified his entry into politics, based on racist talks against Barack Obama's first black president, and he has become increasingly ready to use such tactics to save his own presidency. And he seldom pays a price.
The silence of Republicans on Sunday about Trump's tweets is almost universal, underlining that his allegiance is tolerated by MPs who represent half the voters and who do not risk their own political career to condemn him. .
