By equating neo-Nazis with those who stood against them, Trump (further) sullied his presidency.Arpaio once boasted that the outdoor jail where he held undocumented immigrants was akin to a concentration camp. And he is now a leading exponent of the tea party and other xenophobic right-wing movements that rallied behind Trump in last year's election. By pardoning Arpaio, Trump was, once again, implicitly embracing white supremacists and nativists worldwide.That is higher than the 48 percent of Americans who, in February, supported Trump's executive order barring travel from seven predominantly Muslim countries.Since Trump's election in the U.S. and the Brexit referendum in the United Kingdom, hate speech and crimes against ethnic minorities and foreign nationals have started to become normalized in many Western countries.As the report notes, this coincides precisely with the Brexit referendum and Trump's election.Although mainstream European leaders offered a clear rebuke to the Charlottesville violence and Trump's reaction to it, they need to go further.
