During an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union this weekend, Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson said Donald Trump is “clearly” racist, citing Trump’s history of “incendiary” racial comments.
After Johnson named several other examples of Trump’s disqualifying speech, Keilar pressed Johnson on whether he believed the presumptive Republican nominee was himself racist.
“Based on his statements, clearly,” said Johnson. “If the statements are being made is that not reflective? I mean if you look up the definition of racism, calling a U.S.-born Hispanic ‘Mexican’ and [questioning] his inability to judge others?”
