CNN’s Victor Blackwell Calls Out Trump After Tweet Condemning ‘All Types of Racism’: ‘Remember His Record’

‘This from the president that promulgated the birthism lie about Barack Obama, when he knew President Obama was born in the United States’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

BLACKWELL: "Let’s put the president’s tweet back up this morning. This was his tweet about charlottesville. The riots in charlottesville a year ago resulted in senseless death and division. We must come together as a nation. I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence. Peace to all Americans. This is the president’s statement this morning. We should put this into context and who is sending this out. This from the president who said that Haitians, all Haitians have AIDS. This from the president that said Nigerians will never go back to their huts when they come and see America. This from the president that said African countries are shit holes. This from the president on the ban of muslims coming into the country. This from the man that went after the central park five for years after exonerated. This from the president that promulgated the birthism lie about Barack Obama, when he knew President Obama was born in the United States. This also from the president who said Mexicans are bringing crime, bringing guns, they’re rapists. Some I assume are good people. This from the candidate that said on this very network he knew nothing about great wizard David duke when he was on tape prior condemning him. This from the president time after time after charlottesville said there are fine people on both sides. As you heard there speaking about heritage of confederate monuments. When you see the president talk about he is condemning all types of racism, remember his record over his presidency and the campaign and even before that. We’ll take a break. We’ll be right back."
