Democratic Rep.: Trump Is ‘Clearly Racist’ and an ‘Abject Liar’

On CNN this morning, Congressman Ruben Gallego (D- AZ) slammed President Trump as a racist and an “abject liar.”

He told John Berman, “The President is clearly racist. I don’t understand how much more history we need… Many people may not want to admit it that we’ve elected a President that’s racist, but he is.”

During the segment, he cited Trump’s birtherism and his accusations against the Central Park Five to say “this President’s not good on racial issues.”

Gallego said “the evidence is staring us in the face,” but Berman told him that’s quite an “explosive charge” to level against the President of the United States.

When Berman brought up how Trump has previously referred to himself as the “least racist person,” Gallego said, “We have to also admit that he’s just an abject liar. No one’s gonna claim that they’re a racist, but the man is.”
