On Wednesday evening, he will leave all that behind for friendlier territory, holding a campaign rally before an arena of supporters in Greenville, North Carolina.

Tweet Fight Means Trump Knows Now He Has the Power to Tear Us Apart — And He's Itching To Do More Of It
Photo Illustration by Kelly Caminero/The Daily Beast/GettyWhy is Donald Trump pleased by the controversy over his tweets? Because it's made him realize more than ever before that he has the power to blow the country up over race. 

The New York Times reported Wednesday morning that Donald Trump is thrilled about the controversy stoked by his Sunday morning—and continuing—Twitter barrage aimed at the Squad. There's an ominous lesson in here. The episode seems to have given Trump a new understanding of his power over his supporters and a new sense of destiny. If this doesn't scare you, you'd better wake up.

Trump was always a racist. He ran on stoking racial fear from the beginning, as many have observed. He and his father were racists 40 years ago.

Four Republicans Cut Profiles in Courage and Condemn Trump's Hateful Words
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/GettyPraise is due to the four Republicans who joined Democrats in voting for Monday's House resolution which "strongly condemns President Donald Trump's racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color." 

The impetus for this resolution, of course, was Trump's call for four progressive women of color—the so-called "Squad"—to "go back" to where they "originally came from." 

Conservatives might not agree with The Squad's politics, but everyone should agree that Trump's words crossed a line.

Democrats Can't Even Condemn Trump Racism Without Infighting
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Getty/Brendan SmialowskiHitting back at Donald Trump's latest tirade was supposed to be easy for House Democrats: a show of unity in criticizing the president's racists tweets leading to a formal condemnation of his targeting of four Democratic freshman lawmakers.

But as with most attempts to show disapproval with the president, Tuesday's efforts proved to be ham-fisted. House Democrats formally condemned Trump for his social media missive. But the path getting there was complicated by internal disarray, and overshadowed by the absence of an agreed-upon strategy that culminated in a massive blow-up on the House floor, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused of violating House rules in her attempts to peg the president as a racist. 

It was, in the grand scheme of things, a bureaucratic misstep. But for many Democrats it symbolized something far more: yet another illustration of the party's ineptitude and, ultimately, timidity in confronting Trump.
