“When it comes to ‘No White Guilt,’ I agree with that,” said Diante Johnson, a supporter of President Donald Trump, to CNN’s Ryan Nobles on Saturday.
Nobles sought to frame Saturday’s “Mother of All Rallies” event — a political rally supporting Trump — in Washington, D.C. as somehow hostile to “people of diverse perspectives.”
Partial transcript below:
NOBLES: There are clearly a lot of prominent African-American leaders that feel differently than you do about the president. What do they have wrong about their perception of Donald Trump?
JOHNSON: They don’t have the research. They haven’t done the research. The thing about it is, if you do the research, if you actually, President Trump, I read the book, “The Art of the Deal.” If you read it, you would know exactly how he operates and why he does what he does. He’s playing 3-D chess.
NOBLES: I’ve seen some shirts here today, one shirt that said “No White Guilt,” things like that. There have been some messages that might not be that open to folks with diverse perspectives. What would your message be to folks like that?
JOHNSON: When it comes to "No White Guilt," I agree with that. I actually just made a post about it on my page and a video about it, is that there is — there are some white Americans that feel guilty for what their ancestors did, this and that, and the thing about it is they shouldn’t have to feel guilty. This is America.
