According to a report by Human Rights Watch, the United States continued to move backward on human rights at home and abroad in 2019. The report states that the Trump administration and Congress were able to pass laws, implement regulations, and carry out policies that violate or undermine human rights.
The report also highlights that the administration rolled back initiatives meant to reduce over-incarceration in the US, implemented an array of anti-immigration policies, and worked to undermine a national insurance program that helps Americans obtain affordable health care, including important reproductive care for women. The Trump administration also continued to support abusive governments abroad militarily, financially, and diplomatically.
The report concludes that the United States has expressed support for some international initiatives aimed at sanctioning individuals and governments committing human rights abuses, but overall administration policy undermined multilateral institutions and international judicial bodies seeking to hold people accountable for egregious human rights violations.

His motive was hatred toward Hispanics. "The United States has always been in the midst of a white nationalist terrorist crisis," said a comment.
