“Because why?” Rivera said. “African American unemployment, lowest it’s ever been. Latino unemployment, lowest it’s ever been. This rising tide, this rising tide is lifting all boats. We should be celebrating. Instead, he’s fighting this, this, you know, this cage match.”
Rivera also said he felt “awful for” Trump for facing the Senate impeachment trial over the Ukraine scandal during his trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Critics on Twitter bashed Rivera by pointing out Trump’s history of racist rhetoric and policies, including separating migrant children from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border.
What’s wrong with Geraldo? Civil rights leader who puts kids in cages? Fox News be paying good money to get folks to say crazy lies. Like saying Steve Miller loves black and brown people on Saturdays.

These kind of statements sicken me the most. A civil rights leader? No. No. A thousand caged children no.

Civil rights in Trumpworld means protecting the rights of white Christians (there is an office of Conscience and Freedom inside HHS dedicated to this). Christians=mainly Evangelicals & right-wing Catholics w ties to Opus Dei). https://t.co/bC0L9QrTLN
