Fmr. RNC Chair Michael Steele on Trump’s Attacks on LeBron: ‘Nothing Short of Racist’

He ‘has an attitude about us that is nothing short of racist’


STEELE: "He’s made a commitment of $41 million to this community and helping these kids. I would daresay more than we’ve ever seen come close from the President in this area, in this space. So to even enter this space the way the President did is insulting in that sense. But then to sort of talk about, yet again, when it comes to an African-American athlete or in the case of Don Lemon, someone who is on national television, as somehow being less intelligent and stupid, further speaks to how the black community has come to view this president, as someone who looks down on us and who has an attitude about us that is nothing short of racist."
