Kamala Harris: Yes I think Trump is racist
Kamala Harris said without hesitation that she thinks that President Trump is racist.
In an interview for CBS’s 60 Minutes that aired Sunday, anchor Norah O’Donnell brought up Trump calling the California senator and Democratic vice presidential nominee “nasty” and a “monster.”
“This is not the first time in my life I’ve been called names,” Harris said. “It was predictable, sadly.”
“Do you think the president is racist?” O’Donnell asked.
“Yes, I do,” Harris responded, and provided evidence for why she thinks so.
“You can look at a pattern that goes back to him questioning the identity of the first black president of the United States. You can look at Charlottesville, when there were peaceful protesters, And on the other side, neo-Nazis and he talks about fine people on either side. Calling Mexicans ‘rapists’ and ‘criminals.’ His first order of business was to institute a Muslim ban. It all speaks for itself,” Harris said.
Trump has repeatedly denounced white supremacy. During Thursday’s presidential debate, Trump called himself the “least racist person in this room.”
