Wednesday on the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” MSNBC host Al Sharpton said President Donald Trump is attempting to revive the policy of stop and frisk in Chicago as a “dog whistle to the bigots.”
Monday in Orlando, FL, during a speech to the International Association of Chiefs of Police, the president suggested Chicago should fight crime by using the “stop and frisk” police policy.
So his suggesting this, which he would love to do nationally, it is not fighting crime, it is fighting us.”
He continued, “People need to understand that the racial signals from stop and frisk to other methods that he has used is nothing but dog whistling to the bigots.
And that is why we’ve got to come out and vote and vote with a passion this November From Florida to Maine we need to be lined up to stand up against this backlash that is represented by this president.”
