If you missed seeing footage of the latest
Ku Klux Klan Trump rally in North Carolina Wednesday, Donald Trump ginned up the crowd by dissing Ilhan Omar. When they started chanting, “Send her back!” he stood there like Mussolini and basked in the hate vibe. Today, however, he’s claiming that it didn’t happen that way.
Trump, asked in the Oval why he didn't stop his supporters from chanting 'send her back', says: "I think I did. I started speaking very quickly."
Here's the video: Trump let the chant go on for about 13 seconds. He never told the crowd to stop. pic.twitter.com/CL1Z70vvdZ

Trump told CNN that he didn’t approve of the behavior of the crowd. Sure could have fooled us.
REPORTER: Are you concerned with your supporters chanting “Send her back” about Congresswoman Omar, that it puts her in danger?
TRUMP: I have tremendous support. I wasn’t happy with that message they gave last night. That was a packed arena. … I think we have far more support than they do and we have far more energy than they do and we’re going to have a very interesting election. But I was not happy when I heard that chant.”
REPORTER: Why did they do it?
TRUMP: You would have to ask them. What I would suggest, I was not happy with it, but what I would suggest, you go there, go to North Carolina, and you ask the people why did they say that. But that’s what they said.
REPORTER: You’ll stop them if they try to do it again?
TRUMP: I didn’t like that they did it and I started speaking very quickly. Excuse me. Really? If you would have heard, there was a tremendous amount of noise and action and everything else. I started very quickly. And I think you know that. Maybe you’re giving me too much credit.
No, we’re giving you all the credit, because that’s what you deserve. You put together the 2019 equivalent of a KKK rally. RawStory:
During a discussion about the president’s lie that he tried to stop his supporters chanting “send her back,” Zerlina Maxwell said it reminded her of the things seen during the civil rights movement in the 1950s and 60s.
“When I see that rally, that looks like a Klan rally to me,” she said. “That looks like a Klan rally in 2019.”
Mussolini pose. He basked in it and now he’ll throw his supporters under the bus to deflect blame. pic.twitter.com/vXyCtulI9b

The people did it. Trump was only leading the rally, asking for their votes. How could he possibly be held accountable for anything? Look for this line of “reasoning” to be Trump’s out as the countdown to November 3, 2020 approaches.
