Former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele said Friday he believes President Trump is racist.
“I do. I think at this point the evidence is incontrovertible. It’s right there,” Steele told MSNBC on Friday.
Trump has come under scrutiny from Republicans and Democrats for comments he made during a bipartisan meeting with lawmakers at the White House on Thursday. During a discussion on a deal for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program with the group, Trump reportedly used vulgar language when discussing Haiti and African nations.
“Why are we having all these people from shithole counties coming here?” Trump asked meeting attendees, referencing countries in Africa.
