MITCHELL Kristen Welker and ░░░░░░░░ colleague of course Hallie ░░░░░░░░ Kristen if you want ░░░░░░░░ break that down Is ░░░░░░░░ saying that because there ░░░░░░░░ an Asian American woman ░░░░░░░░ the cabinet that that ░░░░░░░░ he s not using ░░░░░░░░ language and descriptions of ░░░░░░░░ four congresswomen WELKER It ░░░░░░░░ as though that was ░░░░░░░░ defense Andrea to try ░░░░░░░░ point out that there ░░░░░░░░ people of color who ░░░░░░░░ within this administration But ░░░░░░░░ you heard I pressed ░░░░░░░░ on that and said ░░░░░░░░ wait a minute what ░░░░░░░░ that have to do ░░░░░░░░ the president s words ░░░░░░░░ the president s tweets ░░░░░░░░ of course many Democrats ░░░░░░░░ come forward and said ░░░░░░░░ believe is fundamentally racists ░░░░░░░░ it s putting top ░░░░░░░░ here like Marc Short ░░░░░░░░ a very tough spot ░░░░░░░░ Bottom line Marc Short ░░░░░░░░ to be talking about ░░░░░░░░ the USMCA the replacement ░░░░░░░░ NAFTA that s something ░░░░░░░░ the vice president is ░░░░░░░░ spearheading here But instead ░░░░░░░░ is forced to defend ░░░░░░░░ president and his very ░░░░░░░░ comments But I do ░░░░░░░░ it s important to ░░░░░░░░ back to Peter Baker ░░░░░░░░ words in The New ░░░░░░░░ Times President Trump is ░░░░░░░░ this deliberately as he ░░░░░░░░ this tough fight for ░░░░░░░░ election He sees this ░░░░░░░░ something that is energizing ░░░░░░░░ to some of his ░░░░░░░░ supporters And if you ░░░░░░░░ a step back Andrea ░░░░░░░░ has been his tactic ░░░░░░░░ the past We saw ░░░░░░░░ in 2016 Remember he ░░░░░░░░ course launched his political ░░░░░░░░ based on the birtherism ░░░░░░░░ something he has since ░░░░░░░░ away from but basically ░░░░░░░░ in the race and ░░░░░░░░ wars is something that ░░░░░░░░ president is very comfortable ░░░░░░░░ and something that sees ░░░░░░░░ potentially politically empowering, Andrea.”
