When asked by presenter Anderson Cooper whether Mr Trump "is a racist", the 29-year-old left-wing Democratic lawmaker responded: "Yeah, yeah no question."
"When you look at the words that he uses, which are historic dog whistles of white supremacy, when you look at how he reacted to the Charlottesville incident, where neo-Nazis murdered a woman, versus how he manufactures crises like immigrants seeking legal refuge on our borders, it's night and day."
This was a bit surprising to me. Trump is from New York. He has many black friends. He has hired many people that are non-white. Many of his policies have greatly uplifted minority communities - Black unemployement down. Criminal reform done.
