GET A LOAD OF THIS S**T: Trump Now Says No One Should Be Judged By Their Race Or Color (VIDEO)

GET A LOAD OF THIS S**T: Trump Now Says No One Should Be Judged By Their Race Or Color (VIDEO)

In the latest edition of “What the hell is Trump up to now?” he says it isn’t cool to judge people by their race or skin color.

What the hey? Race issues are all he’s been harping on during his entire campaign. If Trump wasn’t able to spew racism, he wouldn’t have anything to talk about.

In a speech at the Faith & Freedom Coalitions Road to the Majority conference on Friday in Washington, the likely Republican presidential nominee said religious freedom means “the right of people of faith to freely practice their faith,” and further added it’s “so important.”

Perhaps Sen. David Perdue, (R-GA) is stepping into those shoes, since he joked about Obama’s “death” during the conference, by quoting Psalms 109.8.

“Let his days be few, and let another have his office,” Perdue said, as a “joke.”

Why does Trump sound conciliatory towards race issues?

But Trump was going, rather weirdly, in another direction in his speech. It’s kind of shocking considering his recent criticism of a Mexican judge presiding over a lawsuit in regards to Trump University. But maybe he’s doing this because he’s been widely criticized by Republican leaders over his comments.

Quite frankly, in his speech, he sounded rather unlike himself:

“If I win, we’re gonna bring our nation together,” he said. “The importance of faith to the United States of society, it’s really the people who go to church, who work in religious charity—so important—and share their values.”

His remarks on Friday may signify that he’s willing to tone down his racist rhetoric and walk back his comments about judge Gonzalo Curiel. Talking to Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly on Monday, he showed signs he was softening his position:

“I don’t care if the judge is Mexican or not,” Trump told O’Reilly. “All I want him to do is give me a fair shake.”

Trump was fairly restrained for most of his speech, which was short—under 20 minutes—and read, for the most part, from a teleprompter.

Trump’s remarks—including his delivery—seem to signify that Trump is trying to mollify Republicans who have called on him to act more like a general election candidate. He even acted this way when his speech was interrupted by protesters. The billionaire real estate magnate refrained from his characteristic taunts, and seemed (dare I say it?) polite:

 “All right. Thank you. A little freedom of speech, please. Freedom of speech,” he said while protesters were being removed from the area and the crowd chanted “USA.” “Thank you. Very rude, but what are you gonna do? Thank you. Thank you, darling. I appreciate it.”

Of course, he couldn’t resist a chance to slam Hillary Clinton, accusing the former secretary of state of wanting to broaden the Obama administration’s plan to take in Syrian refugees fleeing the country by 500 percent, and criticized her regarding the Clinton Foundation, her campaign contributions and her policies.

He also criticized what he claims is Clinton’s agenda on taxes:

“Hillary Clinton’s Wall Street agenda will crush working families,” he said. “She’ll put bureaucrats, not parents, in charge of our lives, and our children’s education can’t have it. She’ll be trapping kids in failing schools. She’ll plunge our inner cities into even deeper poverty, if that’s possible.”

He added:

 “Hillary’s agenda of taxation—and she wants to raise your taxes big-league, folks. Big league. Get used to it. Hear it,” he said. “She wants to raise your taxes tremendously. Regulation, bureaucracy, government control and open borders have economically destroyed our inner cities. Her policies will be a crushing blow to all poor people in this country. Her education policies, her economic policies, her immigration policies and her trade policies will plunge our poor African-Americans and Hispanic communities into turmoil and even worse, despair. Believe me. You look at what’s going on.”

It feels strange to hear Trump express concern that isn’t negative and nasty-toned regarding race issues. Let’s hope he continues this way. This is a pretty abrupt about-face.

Who really knows if Trump is being sincere?
