The House is set to condemn Trump’s racist comments about four of its members. From Nancy Pelosi: “This is, I hope, one where we will get Republican support. If they can’t support condemning the words of the president, well, that’s a message in and of itself.” From Kevin McCarthy: “I believe this is about ideology; this is about socialism versus freedom.” From President Trump: “Those Tweets were NOT Racist. I don’t have a Racist bone in my body!” (Maybe they’re bone spurs?)

+ I tried to make my position on the matter pretty clear yesterday. So did The New Yorker’s David Remnick: A Racist in the White House. “What’s curious is just how many people have resisted seeing squarely Trump’s racism, his shrewd exploitation of animosity, hatred, and division for political advantage. Trump is hardly a man of subtle concealment.”

+ “The idea was to outsource part of the American asylum system to Guatemala, despite the fact that many of the Central-American asylum seekers arriving at the U.S. border are Guatemalans fleeing poverty, hunger, and violence in their home country.” Jonathan Blitzer in The New Yorker: How Trump’s Safe-Third-Country Agreement with Guatemala Fell Apart.

+ ProPublica: A Border Patrol Agent Reveals What It’s Really Like to Guard Migrant Children. “Somewhere down the line people just accepted what’s going on as normal.” (There’s a lot of that going around these days…)
