Trump responded to President Obama’s remarks following the recent mass shootings that occurred over the weekend. Without directly naming Trump, President Obama urged Americans to:
“…reject language coming out of the mouths of any of leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hate or normalizes racist sentiments…”
After draining his brain on Fox & Friends, Trump tweeted a quote from anchor Brian Kilmeade who criticized Obama’s response to mass shootings that occurred during his presidency.

Trump also repeated the lie that he’s the “least racist person.”
“It’s political season and the election is around the corner. They want to continue to push that racist narrative.” @ainsleyearhardt @foxandfriends And I am the least racist person. Black, Hispanic and Asian Unemployment is the lowest (BEST) in the history of the United States!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 6, 2019
Trump continued to peddle misinformation about his Tariff and Trade War with China.
Massive amounts of money from China and other parts of the world is pouring into the United States for reasons of safety, investment, and interest rates! We are in a very strong position. Companies are also coming to the U.S. in big numbers. A beautiful thing to watch!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 6, 2019
Yesterday, the Dow closed-767 points down in response to China devaluating their currency in retaliation to Trump’s new round of tariffs on Chinese goods.
