This is not leadership. It's thuggish.

<b>This is not leadership. It's thuggish.</b>Trump is fueling racism and inciting violence.
Protests spread rapidly throughout the United States over the weekend after Trump, invoking Walter Headley, a Miami racist police chief in the 60s, tweeted: "when the looting starts, the shooting starts". Headley was known for cracking down on communities of color with policing policies like stop-and-frisk and his use of patrol dogs. Twitter rapidly flagged the tweet and limited the public's ability to view it, saying it "violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence." The tweet is hidden unless a user clicks to display it, and users cannot like or reply to it. As protests escalated, curfews have been imposed in some of U.S largest cities, including Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami and Philadelphia.
