Trump is the most racist president US ever had in modern history - Beto O'Rourke

Politics A- A A+

Former Texas congressman and Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke called President Trump “the most openly racist president that we’ve had in modern history” at a Miami town hall event Tuesday night, Fox News reports.

“Donald Trump is the most openly racist president that we’ve had in modern history, perhaps in all of American history," O'Rourke said, "who's called Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals, who's said that we've got to ban all Muslims as though there's something wrong or defective about some people given their religion, who's described Klansmen and white supremacists as very fine people.”

At the town hall, he criticized the Trump administration's hard-line immigration policy.

“You don't put them in cages, you don't separate them from their families," O'Rourke said. "You don't torture them the way that we've been torturing them. I'm going to stand up for everyone as president in this country. I'm going to acknowledge that we don't need to tolerate or respect our differences. We need to embrace them. It's what makes us stronger and better and safer and more secure as a country.”
