NAACP President Responds to President Trump’s Islamophobic Tweet

April 13, 2019
NAACP President and CEO, Derrick Johnson, released the following statement in response to President Trump’s Islamophobic tweet:
“Trump’s recent tweet invokes painful memories to promote his racist agenda. This is maddening but not surprising for a President whose presidential campaign and presidency has been based on hate, xenophobia, and bigotry. The President needs to realize that his words have the power to incite hate, violence, and ignorance that is nothing but a detriment to our society.”
