Rep. Ruben Gallego: ‘We Just Have to Admit’ Donald Trump Is an ‘Absolute Racist’

Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) made it clear he has no intention to stop reminding people that President Trump is bigoted against Muslims.

The congressman spoke with radio host and Mediaite contributor Dean Obeidallah, where they discussed the fallout from the recent bomb attack against a mosque in Minnesota. The Trump Administration has been noticeably reluctant to comment about the matter, and Gallego slammed the president for marginalizing Muslims around the country with his rhetoric instead of promising to protect them as citizens.

“It’s disappointing that Trump doesn’t show any leadership – doesn’t even do attempt to do it on his own – for someone who will tweet about anything that he see’s like a leak…but he won’t tweet about this.”

Gallegos said Trump would’ve certainly commented if a Muslim launched an attack against a church, but it’s time for people to face facts.

“At the core, we just have to admit Donald Trump himself is a racist. He is an absolute racist.”
