Trump's immigration ban exposes white nationalism and the crisis of imperialism 


After only one week of being in office, U.S. president Donald John Trump signed an executive order that bans immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries from traveling to the U.S. on Friday, January 27, 2017.

The countries included in the ban are Somalia, Syria, Libya, Iraq, Yemen, Sudan and Iran. They are mostly-Muslim countries but more importantly, their people are involved in active resistance against U.S. and European imperialism.

Trump stated while signing the order that it was to "keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States of America.” He continued, “We don't want them here."

Trump's inauguration and the exposing of white nationalism 


Donald John Trump was inaugurated as the president of U.S. on January 20, 2017. He became the 45th U.S. president to take office.

He began his inauguration speech by thanking the past U.S. presidents that were present at the ceremony, including Barack Obama, whom Trump claimed a fierce opposition to during his campaign.

This shows that Trump is aligned with imperialism and simply used backlash against the black president to consolidate the white working class.

U.S. president-elect Donald Trump is aligned with white power 


It has been a month and a half since Donald Trump was elected president of the U.S. on November 8, 2016. Since then, he has been busy consolidating the team of people who will assist him in continuing the U.S. legacy of violent imperialist and colonial domination against Africans and oppressed peoples.

He appointed the white nationalist Alabama politician Jeffrey Sessions to position of attorney general. Sessions is quoted by several people as saying how he “admired” the KKK and once called an African assistant general attorney for the state of Alabama “boy,” according to independent journalist Sarah Wildman.
