'The president’s remarks reflect a moral principle that has guided policy while in office, a principle obvious to all but that some refuse to articulate.These remarks reflect scorn not only for those who wish to come here, but those who already have. It is a president of the United States expressing his contempt for the tens of millions of descendants of Africans, most of whose forefathers had no choice in crossing the Atlantic, American citizens whom any president is bound to serve. And it is a public admission of sorts that he is incapable of being a president for all Americans, the logic of his argument elevating not just white immigrants over brown ones, but white citizens over the people of color they share this country with. What is certain however, that is in the face of this delusion, the president will continue to articulate it himself.'
