Trump is nothing more than a racist provocateur, according to the Left

A roundup of editorials Monday looks at how President Donald Trump insists on stirring the racial pot, how the player who sparked the protest won the day and how the president holds a “slave master-like obsession” with attacking blacks.

Here are some opinions from the Left.

1. Trump keeps fanning racial flames
From the Ashbury Park Press: Trump's comments about NFL players served only one purpose – to "spit on free speech."

2. How the player who wasn't there won the day
From ESPN: Colin Kaepernick wasn't there to protest on Sunday, but Trump's remarks about the movement he began gave the quarterback a win.

3. Trump's NFL tirade shows the nation who he really is: A white supremacist
From the Kansas City Star: Jenee Osterheldt writes on Trump's comments on NFL players who refuse to stand for the national anthem, "has an old slave master-like obsession with breaking strong black men and silencing black women."
