In an interview with The Los Angeles Times, Black Lives Matter co-founder, Patrisse Cullors, said she would not have a sit-down meeting with President Trump because they would not do the same with Hitler:
“We wouldn’t as a movement take a seat at the table with Trump because we wouldn’t have done that with Hitler. Trump is literally the epitome of evil, all the evils of this country — be it racism, capitalism, sexism, homophobia. He has set out the most dangerous policies…”
“And so for us, the answer is not to sit with him but to resist him and to resist every single policy that he’s implemented that impacts our communities,” she added.
Cullors claims she wants to look back and be able to tell her children she did the right thing by resisting President Trump at every opportunity.
“And … if I’m thinking about what I want my children to know in 30, 40, 50 years, I want them to know that I resisted a president at all costs, because this president literally tried to kill our communities, and is killing our communities,” Cullors said.
When she started to get backlash for her comments, she doubled down on social media:
Here come the trolls. At this point we all know that 45 is a:
2. White supremacist
3. Evil human being
Let’s just own it.

Later in the interview, Cullors said she hope BLM is able to “to ultimately reduce law enforcement funding.” BLM wants to see the communities “divesting from law enforcement and reinvesting into our communities.”
