Luis Gutierrez, a Democrat from Illinois said that the government shut down is due to “the first racist president of the United States of America.”
At a MoveOn rally outside the Capitol on Friday evening Gutierrez accused President Trump of showing his true colors of a racist with his alleged ‘sh*thole’ comments. Gutierrez claims that the government shut down is not about Democrats failing to come to the table to talk, but because Trump is racist.
“It’s really about the color of your skin and the country you come from,” Gutierrez said, adding that he was fighting to keep “pathways to America clear” for various people of color.
The fiery Democrats also accused Republicans of holding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) hostage, which doesn’t make any sense because Republicans are the ones trying to get the illegal immigrants to leave.
“Clearly, after the ransom is paid and the hostages are freed, we’re going after the kidnappers in November and running them out of office,’ Gutierrez said.
Earlier in the week, Gutierrez said that Trump could lead the KKK and said he was “100%” sure that Trump is a racist.
“We always knew that President Trump doesn’t like people from certain countries or people or certain colors. We can now say with 100% confidence that the President is a racist,” Gutierrez said in a statement.
Gutierrez is one of the countries most prominent Latino leaders, and he said he was planning on touring the country and testing the waters for a 2020 presidential bid while “creating a new fierce framework for immigrant rights across this country.”
As Breitbart News pointed out, should Gutierrez decide to to run for president, “his over-the-top and vicious anti-Trump rhetoric, left-wing authenticity, and propensity to say outrageous statements without a filter would guarantee him plenty of press and headlines and consideration from the ‘Resistance wing.’”
