Joy Ann Reid: Trump Has ‘Blatantly Bigoted Views,’ He’s ‘Unabashedly White Nationalist’
REID: " Yeah. And it was hard to choose. Going through that montage, the code talkers, having them stand in front of a photo of Andrew Jackson, the genocidal maniac who marched native Americans across a trail of tears, having the Russians in the oval office and giving away our Intel. Supporting Roy Moore, an accused child molester. I think charlottesville crystallized what the core complaint about Donald Trump has been throughout his public life which is that he brings forward blatantly bigoted views and that he has a soft spot for people like those tiki torch marchers. That he does see some redeeming quality in white nationalism and that, you know, to coats’ point. He’s the first white president and unabashedly white nationalist and that’s where he still stands even now. I think not since Woodrow Wilson have we had a president that had that embrace of it and not embarrassed about it."
