Trump has body slammed himself this time. With reports of a Saudi journalist's gruesome murder prominently in the news, Trump told a crowd he was backing a Congressman for reelection partly because that Congressman had body slammed a journalist:
"Any guy that can do a body slam — he's my guy." —Trump

We must insist that members of Congress confront Trump’s repeated winks and nods to racists, anti-Semites and all-around bigots -- symbolized by the neo-Nazis and KKK supporters who terrorized peaceful protesters in Charlottesville last year, murdering one woman in the process.
Referring to events in Charlottesville, Trump made numerous abhorrent statements at a news conference, including his declaration that there were “some very fine people on both sides” in a conflict where violent promoters of racism and anti-Semitism attacked nonviolent opponents of bigotry.
During his presidential campaign, Trump repeatedly urged supporters to rough-up anti-Trump protesters. He told a crowd in Iowa to "Knock the crap out of them . . . I promise you, I will pay the legal fees." Referring to a protester at a Nevada rally, Trump said, "I'd like to punch him in the face."
Trump's numerous statements condoning and encouraging both bigotry and violence, as well as his response to Charlottesville, have been praised by white supremacists.
