News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. April 1, 2016: A Caribbean roots actress, model and R&B singer, who is best known for her role as Ashley Banks on the NBC sitcom ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,’ has slammed Republican Presidential front-runner Donald Trump on the social media site he loves – Twitter.
Tatyana Ali, whose roots extend to Trinidad & Tobago as well as Panama, slammed Trump Thursday on the same day he had a surprise meeting with the Republican National Party in D.C.
“#DonaldTrump is a hate monger,” Ali tweeted yesterday. “Anyone who is not male, white & Christian will be hunted down in his imagined dictatorship. He is shameful.”
The New York-born actress – who began her acting career at age 6 and also had recurring roles recently as Roxanne on the CBS soap opera ‘The Young and the Restless,’ – tweet came also a day after Trump had three different stances on abortion, twice clarifying comments he made earlier in the day that women who undergo abortions, if there were a ban on the procedure, should be punished.
It also comes as reports continue of multitudes of people being thrown out at Trump rallies while Trump supporters yelled and booed at them, some with racial slurs, saying “f… you”, “go back to Africa”, “go back to Mexico” and “get a f…ing job” while giving them the middle finger.
And as new polls show Trump’s base may be flagging. In Wisconsin, host of the next big Republican primary, a new poll shows Texas senator Ted Cruz ahead by 10 percentage points in what should be prime Trump country: a state with a high percentage of non-college educated white, Republican voters and as a new national survey shows that every demographic group has a negative view of the real estate developer – even white men, who were previously his stalwarts.
