David Plouffe knows that it’s not just enough to defeat Donald himself this year.

In the wake of the horrific Orlando massacre, Donald Trump delivered a fear-mongering speech against Muslim Americans and immigrant communities.

David Plouffe, former campaign manager for President Obama’s first national candidacy in 2008, tweeted a strong message Monday evening in response:

A comment like this goes far beyond typical political fare, in which a longtime partisan professional would praise their party’s nominee and/or oppose the candidate of the other side.

Plouffe is essentially casting Trump as the representative of a destructive force in American politics — against which the people must be on guard well beyond just this campaign.
