    Convince Me

    Not sure why you think any of this is a good thing. Perhaps it is because you share Trump's erroneous, dangerous, and provably false assumption that illegal immigrants are more prone to disease and violent crime? None of this is exclusive to Trump specifically besides maybe the ICE funding increase, which with the general decrease in illegal immigration as attested to be a majority of sources on the topic, seems like a waste of money. A vast majority of illegal immigrants are not smuggling drugs across, they are looking to better the life of themselves and their families, either as economic migrants or as political refugees. They aren't "bad". Designation of entire groups of vulnerable people as such has already led to some bad humanitarian outcomes.

    His provably false, demagogic lies about immigration are probably what turns me off the most about him. But there are many other issues that others have raised. Doubt OP is going to come back with any kind of coherent response to the legitimate issues raised. Trump supporters lack the wherewithal to rationally defend their idol

    What are the Identity Politics of the Republican Party?

    The Republican Party makes odes to "colorblindness" that effectively reject actual remedies for historical inequality While at the same time their nationalist wing headed by the President and those of his ilk dogwhistle about the immigration "crisis" to garner electoral support I think its been pretty discussed among people with the ability to analyze the world around them

    Trumps MLK Jr proclamation.

    He didn't think of government as big vs small, he thought of it as enforcing racism vs not enforcing racism. The fact that government was "big" wasn't the problem, the fact that it was racist was. He never articulated any ideology that "size" was the issue. He wanted the federal government to take an active role in eliminating racism and poverty. By modern conservative standards, that would be a big-government action. He was very pro-federal government in the overriding of racist state law, and was pro-federal government in law changes to enable civil rights and in the war on poverty. He dedicated years of his life towards demanding guaranteed welfare income and guaranteed employment from.. the federal government. If Obama, Ocasio-Cortez, Liz Warren, etc. came with MLK's Economic Bill of Rights WORD FOR WORD and presented it to the House of Representatives, you would call them a big-government socialist. Face facts.

    Trumps MLK Jr proclamation.

    Well... duh he was trying to get officials to do their job. He also was trying to get a massive, "big-government", "welfare" elimination of poverty passed. All of his solutions for black freedom rights involved action by the federal government. None were "small-government". I've read many of his speeches. I doubt you have.

    Most of the Maga hat wearers here are young and likely just believe what their parents tell them and want to belong. I don't think they should be curb-stomped. Maybe reprimanded.

    Furthermore, who cares about his partisan affiliation (or lack thereof) before the Southern Strategy. Look at what he was saying in his demand for welfare in the Economic Bill of Rights that was ultimately delivered to Congress. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/apr/04/martin-luther-king-jr--economic-bill-of-rights

    Trumps MLK Jr proclamation.

    "It is not the government that will achieve Mr. King's ideals" You do know that MLK's entire strategy to achieve his ideals was with the use of the federal government, right?
