Throughout his presidential campaign, and even before that, President Donald Trump came into the limelight for making racist comments about people from various ethnic and religious backgrounds.
He openly expressed his negative sentiments for Muslims, Mexicans and African Americans, all while proving he has no regard for anyone who is non-white or doesn't agree with him.
But contradictory to everything mentioned above, in his latest press conference the POTUS called himself the “least anti-Semitic person that you’ve ever seen in your entire life” along with labeling himself the “least racist person.”
Needless to say, the world is having a hard time digesting his statements.
Ironically, soon after uttering the above questionable words, Trump asked an African-American reporter if members of the Congressional Black Caucus were “friends” of hers. During the same conference, he cut off a Jewish reporter mid-question and told him to “sit down.”
The business mogul has called Muslims people who only “believe in jihad” and “have no respect for human life.” After assuming his role as president, he signed executive orders banning people from seven Muslim-majority countries for entering the United States.
His stance on Mexicans also is clear. After calling them “rapists” and saying they bring in drugs and crime, he vowed to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border and ordered the start of its construction soon after assuming office.
During his presidential campaign, Trump also stated he has a “great relationship with the blacks.” It doesn’t end here, folks. Trump’s victory has led to a surge in incidents of racism and hate crime across the country.
And, yet, he insists, he is the “least racist person” you’ll ever meet.
