UCLA study analyzes over 6,000 Trump tweets, ‘proves’ he’s a bigot

Students at UCLA have scrutinized over 6,300 Donald Trump tweets and speeches and determined that “his language shows an anti-immigrant bias and ‘false narrative.’”

The study by the César E. Chávez Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies (don’t they use “Chicanx” yet?) was utilized by several state attorneys in support of maintaining DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

According to Law & Crime, the students’ research concludes “Trump used generalizations and loaded words to promote the idea that immigrants–particularly Latinos–are criminals, Mexico is an enemy, and that Trump will protect American citizens, who are victims of an invasion of criminal aliens.”

A tweet from this past June noted Mexico is “the second deadliest country in the world after only Syria,” and another from candidate Trump in 2015 proclaimed “Mexico is killing the United States economically because their leaders and negotiators are FAR smarter than ours. But nobody beats Trump!”

From the story:

Another tweet, from August 11, 2015, is used as an example of Trump mentioning a specific instance in order to cultivate a general impression that illegal immigration is a problem:

Again illegal immigrant is charged with the fatal bludgeoning of a wonderful and loved 64 year old woman. Get them out and build a WALL!

“There are statements made by Trump that, in my opinion, openly express animosity towards immigrants,” Professor Robert Chang of Seattle University School of Law, who filed the study, said to Univision. “That is why this analysis of his speech is important.”

The idea behind the study is to show that Trump’s decision to end DACA was unconstitutional because it was racially motivated. Of course, DACA itself wasn’t a law, but a system of policies meant to protect certain undocumented immigrants. Obama put DACA in place because Congress had failed to pass legislation, commonly known as the DREAM Act.

Somehow the irony was missed regarding the alleged unconstitutionality of Trump’s decision to end DACA, and how President Obama unilaterally took on Congress’s DACA law-making duties.

    There is nothing quit like an unbiased study from ‘ César E. Chávez Department of Chicana and Chicano Studies’. One can be certain they have no agenda.

    6000 tweets! Why go to all that trouble? You know everyone is racist anyway, right? I mean, I know I’m racist for example, because Obama said so, as did Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, Oprah, The View, The Black Caucus, six or eight semi-literate rappers, Susan Rice, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, ABC, BLM, and Rosie O’Donnell. And you. So quit with the study BS and just call Trump racist. Not like any of you “Studies” types could have passed statistics anyway. (And, no, standard deviation is not a sexist term….)

    From a department named after Cesar Chavez, who was virulently opposed to illegal immigrants. They drove down the wages of his farm workers.
