Remember when Hillary Clinton told CNN that Democrats could only be civil if they won the House in 2018? Democrats did exactly that, and freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez decided to go on 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper to demonstrate the New Civility…

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says the president is a racist, “no question.” The White House told 60 Minutes that President Trump “has repeatedly condemned racism and bigotry in all forms.” https://t.co/Wulr0l7fFK pic.twitter.com/o6pCTPmabt

President Trump posthumously pardoned Jack Johnson, the first black heavyweight champion in boxing. Johnson had been convicted of transporting a white woman across state lines “for the purpose of prostitution or debauchery, or for any other immoral purpose.”
Perhaps most notably, President Trump recently signed a landmark criminal justice reform bill that had been praised by both Republicans and Democrats, including members of the black community.
