Joe Lockhart: ‘No Doubt’ Trump ‘Doesn’t View People Who Aren’t White As Important As Everyone Else’
LOCKHART: "Yeah. There’s no doubt that the President doesn’t view Puerto Rico as part of the United States. He doesn’t view people who didn’t vote for him as important. And he doesn’t view people who aren’t white as important as everyone else. That’s just — it’s that simple. We don’t need any more examples of how he views the world. And that’s unfortunate. On the other hand, it is right for him to stay here. And it’s not just symbolic. There are times you remember in — with Katrina, where there were problems between state and local and federal, and the president can sort those things out. He can get on the phone and get people to work together. So it is symbolically the right thing to do, but it’s also the right thing for the President to do."
