Donald Trump Is Least Racist Living President, Historical Analysis Finds; Report: Trump Is the Only Living President Not Descended from Slaveowners

Donald Trump Is Least Racist Living President, Historical Analysis Finds
Big Don is only POTUS (including Barack Obama) not descended from slave owners
What happened: Reuters investigated the family backgrounds of U.S. political leaders and found that many of them are descended from slave owners.
Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and Elizabeth Warren made the list, but Donald Trump did not.
What it means: Trump is the least racist, most anti-slavery president of the United States, according to the findings of the Reuters investigation.
• "President Joe Biden and every living former U.S. president—except Donald Trump—are direct descendants of slaveholders," the analysis found. "Trump's ancestors came to America after slavery was abolished."
• Obama, the first mixed-race president in American history, is a descendant of slave owners on his white mother's side.
Why it matters: Being a slave owner is very racist. Obama and other privileged descendants of slave owners have benefited from the suffering and exploitation of slaves. In the interest of fairness, perhaps they should pay reparations to Trump's family and others who patiently waited for the United States to abolish slavery before immigrating. --->READ MORE HERE
Donald Trump is the only living president whose family didn’t own slaves: report:
Donald Trump is the only president alive, past or present, whose family can’t be linked to slave ownership, according to a new report.
Reuters says Jimmy Carter, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama are all descendants of a slave owner.
That study also found Trump-appointed Supreme Court Justices Amy Coney Barrett and Neil Gorsuch, as well as at least 100 lawmakers, descended from ancestors who enslaved Black people. Sitting members of Congress who can link their heritage to slavers include at least 28% of Republicans and 8% of Democrats, Reuters claims.
Obama, the only Black president elected in the U.S., can reportedly trace his family’s slave-owning roots to one man on his white mother’s side of the family, who subjugated two humans.
The Trumps, meanwhile, arrived in the U.S. after slavery was abolished.
Friedrich Trump — a sickly child unsuited for hard labor and wanting to avoid serving in Germany’s military, according to the History Channel — crossed the Atlantic to launch his family legacy in 1885. The 13th Amendment called for an end to slavery 20 years earlier.
Two Republicans competing with Trump for the 2024 GOP nomination, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum, also come from families with slave-owning pasts, Reuters reports. --->READ MORE HERE
