In truth, it is typically the people that they so strongly oppose that are in truth the Elite,” Trump stated. He additional, “The movie coming out is designed in order to inflame and cause chaos. They generate their have violence, and then check out to blame others. They are the true Racists, and are pretty lousy for our Country”:
