‘TROUBLEMAKER’: President Trump Slams ‘Con Man’ Al Sharpton, Says He ‘Hates Cops’

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.29.19

President Trump slammed Al Sharpton in a series of fiery tweets Monday morning; labeling the activist a “con man” who “hates cops.”

“I have known Al for 25 years. Went to fights with him & Don King, always got along well. He “loved Trump!” He would ask me for favors often. Al is a con man, a troublemaker, always looking for a score. Just doing his thing. Must have intimidated Comcast/NBC. Hates Whites & Cops!” posted the President on social media.

“Al Sharpton would always ask me to go to his events. He would say, ‘it’s a personal favor to me.’ Seldom, but sometimes, I would go. It was fine. He came to my office in T.T. during the presidential campaign to apologize for the way he was talking about me. Just a conman at work!” he added.

President Trump called-out Rep. Elijah Cummings over the weekend; saying he “milked Baltimore dry” after labeling the city a “rat-infested mess.”

“If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place,” Trump wrote, saying that Cummings’ “district is considered the Worst in the USA” and “no human being would want to live there.”

WATCH: Al Sharpton Says America Should Stop Funding The Jefferson Memorial

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.16.17

Speaking with Charlier Rose on Tuesday, Reverend Al Sharpton stated his belief that the public should no longer fund the Jefferson Memorial located in Washington D.C. due to the fact that the second president was a slave owner.

Sharpton made his comment after Rose asked if he believed that the Jefferson Memorial should be removed.

“I think that people need to understand when people that were in enslaved and robbed of even the right to marry — and had forced sex with their slave masters — this is personal to us,” Sharpton said. “My great grandfather was a slave in South Carolina—owned by the family, ended up, Strom Thurmond was one of them, a newspaper discovered—so this is personal. This is not some kind of removed discussion for us. Our families were victims of this.”

“When you look at the fact that public monuments are supported by public funds, you’re asking me to subsidize the insult to my family,” Sharpton added.

“Then I repeat: Thomas Jefferson had slaves,” Rose pressed.

“And I repeat that the public should not be paying to uphold somebody who has had that kind of background,” Sharpton repeated.

BETO FLIPS: O’Rourke Now Backs Reparations, Says US Needs ‘National Conversation’ on the Issue

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.03.19

Potential 2020 Democratic hopeful Beto O’Rourke back-tracked from previous comments regarding racial reparations Wednesday; saying he now supports a “national conversation” surrounding financial restitution for America’s history of slavery.

“Foundational to the word ‘reparations’ is ‘repair’. Foundational to repair is the truth,” O’Rourke told supporters during a speech at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.

“And until all Americans understand that civil rights are not just those [historic] victories… but the injustices that have been visited and continue to be visited on people, we will never change that we need to live up to the promise of this country,” he added.

“I don’t believe that should be the primary or initial focus of the conversation,” concluded the Texas Democrat. “I think it is understanding the facts… and those actions will take place after there is a national conversation with facts and truth.”
