Trump demonstrates he is absolutely clueless about what desegregation busing was


President Donald Trump once again displayed his ignorance over the weekend after being asked about desegregation busing in the United States after he chimed in on Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) going after former Vice-President Joe Biden’s record on Thursday night.

During the Democratic debate, Harris confronted Biden about his boast that he worked with segregationist lawmakers during his career in Congress.

“As the only African-American on stage, I would like to speak,” she began. “I do not believe you are a racist. And I agree with you when you commit yourself to the importance of finding common ground, but I also believe — and it is personal, and it was actually very hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two United States senators who built their reputation and career on the segregation of race in this country. And it was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose busing. And you know, there was a little girl in California who was a part of the second class to integrate her public schools, and she was bused to school every day. And that little girl was me.”

Busing was necessary to protect black students and make sure they made it to school safely during desegregation in an effort to integrate school districts and comply with the Supreme Court ruling in Brown v. Board of Education.

Biden, unfortunately, opposed the federal government providing busing, but at least he understands what busing is, whereas Trump confused it with kids riding school buses today.

Seriously, Trump has no clue what desegregation busing is, and he was very much alive at the time such busing took place.

And when asked if he agrees with Biden or Harris on the issue, Trump punted by promising to answer that question in four weeks.

Four weeks just happens to be when new polls will come out, which is what Trump is apparently waiting for so he can give an answer that will hurt the candidate in the lead.

In other words, he has no real answer, he just wants to give an answer that is convenient and beneficial to himself.

Former Office of Government Ethics chief Walter Shaub spoke for everyone with a perfect response.
