Trump says he won’t allow ‘definite anti-white feeling’ in US

Donald Trump vowed that if he is elected for a second term as president, he will pursue policies that will not allow what he calls a ‘definite anti-white feeling’ in the US.

The ex-president was asked in a wide-ranging interview with TIME about polls showing that a majority of his supporters believe that anti-white racism poses a greater problem in America than anti-black racism. Asked if he agreed, Trump replied, ‘Oh, I think that there is a lot to be said about that.’

Trump claimed that the Biden administration is ‘sort of against anybody depending on certain views’ and that ‘they’re against Catholics’ and a lot of different people’.

‘They actually don’t even know what they’re against, but they’re against a lot,’ said Trump. ‘But no, I think there is a definite anti-white feeling in this country and that can’t be allowed either.’

When asked how he would address that, Trump said ‘it would be a very tough thing to address, frankly’.

‘But I think the laws are very unfair right now. And education is being very unfair, and it’s being stifled. But I don’t think it’s going to be a big problem at all,’ he continued in the interview published on Tuesday.

‘But if you look right now, there’s absolutely a bias against white and that’s a problem.’ Trump’s response was slammed by ABC News’ The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg.

‘Nobody in your family was hung. Nobody in your family was chased because of the color of their skin. How dare you? There’s no anti-white issue here,’ said Goldberg on Tuesday morning. ‘You are perpetrating [sic] anti-humanist issues here.’

TIME national politics reporter Eric Cortellessa in his original question had brought up Trump speaking about ‘woke-ism’ on college campuses. In June, Trump hailed the Supreme Court’s decision striking down affirmative action programs considering race in college admissions.

In another question for the magazine’s cover story, Cortellessa brought up that Trump’s former Secretary of Defense said he once suggested shooting a Black Lives Matter protester in the leg.

‘Well, he was my worst Secretary of Defense. He was a weak, ineffective person,’ said Trump, referring to Mark Esper.

‘No, he was a very ineffective Secretary of Defense. No, but I would, are you talking about the case of colleges, or what are you talking about?’

Trump in the sit-down interview at Mar-a-Lago on April 12 also detailed his plan to use the military to deport undocumented migrants and said he would allow states to monitor women’s pregnancies.
