The presidential election is just a week away as voters are already lining up around the country to place their early ballots in what is being billed as one of the most important, if not, the most important presidential election. The battle to run the United States is between current Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic former Vice President Joe Biden.
With all the racial strife and protesting against racial injustice within the court system and the police departments across the country, the president has been accused many times over the course of his first term as leader of the free world of stoking racial fires by stirring up his base. Questions have always been directed at him asking why he doesn’t speak out against the white nationalists and white supremacy groups that support him as if he is one of their own.
In a 60 Minutes interview with CBS anchor, Norah O’Donnell, Sen. Kamala Harris, who is Joe Biden’s running mate, was asked directly by O’Donnell if she felt the president is racist.
“Do you think the president is racist?” asked O’Donnell.
“Yes, I do,” Harris responded. “Yeah. I do. You can look at a pattern that goes back to him questioning the identity of the first Black president of the United States.”
“You can look at Charlottesville, when there were peaceful protesters, and on the other side, neo-Nazis and he talks about fine people on either side. Calling Mexicans rapists and criminals. His first order of business was to institute a Muslim ban. It all speaks for itself.”
