Robert Reich served as Labor Secretary under former president Bill Clinton but shocked many by endorsing Bernie Sanders in this election cycle. However, there is one thing that Reich and the House of Clinton can agree on in 2016, and that’s the need to “Dump Trump.” The outspoken Democrat released a video with MoveOn.org outlining eight reasons why the GOP needs to dump Donald Trump as their nominee and why the American public must not elect him president.
1. Donald Trump Divides Us By Race, Ethnicity, And Religion
Reich cites several instances of Trump using divisive language, including stating that undocumented workers “bring crime, drugs; they’re rapists.” He also cited Trump’s claims that the Mexican government ships over their worst so they won’t have to “pay for them,” and his campaign promise to send 11 million undocumented residents back to Mexico. Reich also points out Trump’s reluctance to disavow the endorsement of a former Ku Klux Klan leader, David Duke, and his refusal to denounce anti-Semitic remarks by his supporters. The presumptive GOP nominee also wants to ban admitting any Muslims into the country, inaccurately equating them all with extremists.
