Trump says he’s not concerned about being racist because “many people agree” with him
He also falsely accused Ilhan Omar of “speaking about how wonderful al-Qaeda is” in his latest racist rant.
While Trump was taking questions from reporters during an event that was ostensibly supposed to be a “Made in America Product Showcase,” Fox News reporter John Roberts asked him if it concerns him that “many people saw that tweet as racist and that white nationalist groups are finding common cause with you on that point?”
Trump said that he is not, in fact, worried about it. “It doesn’t concern me because many people agree with me,” he said. “And all I’m saying — they want to leave, they can leave. Now, it doesn’t say, ‘Leave forever.’ It says, ‘Leave if you want.’”
