President Donald Trump signaled a eagerness to concede on a pivotal immigration issue — but then he blew it.
The boss suggested during his State of the Union residence that immigrants brought to the United States as children posed a hazard to native-born Americans, and internet users were horrified.
“I am fluctuating an open palm to work with members of both parties — Democrats and Republicans — to strengthen the adults of every background, color, sacrament and creed,” Trump said. “My duty, and the dedicated avocation of every inaugurated central in this chamber, is to urge Americans — to strengthen their safety, their families, their communities, and their right to the American Dream. Because Americans are dreamers too.”
Social media users battered the president.
You people know that when he says America and Americans, he means white people, right? He has just lumped Hispanics, #DACA, undocumented immigrants w/ a ruthless gang. He pronounced Americans are Dreamers too, that’s like when white ppl contend “All Live Matter” #SOTU #Trump #Racist

“Americans are Dreamers too” – POTUS.
Basically the same thought as All Lives Matter. Just trying to disprove the other side and put white Americans forward of everybody else. That’s not unity, that’s divisiveness. #SOTU

He had the odacity to contend “Americans are dreamers too” … no one is trying to take American dreams divided in the first place. This is not a foe about nationalities. This is about human beings who have the right to live their dreams as much as Americans do.

“Americans are dreamers too” is the dumbest catchphrase ever. White people have been vital their American dream given the day they sailed their asses over here. The only dream minorities had was to be free, and even that was asking for too much tf
