Once again, the left is trying to spin the narrative that President Trump is racist, but that simply isn’t true.
Senator Dianne Feinstein said that Trump is “promoting a homogenous, white society” on Friday. She added that he would set the United States back “generations” due to his alleged comments of referring to some countries as “shithole countries.”
“The president’s expressed desire to see more immigrants from countries like Norway must be called out for what it is: an effort to set this country back generations by promoting a homogenous, white society,” Feinstein said.
Feinstein was only one among a growing number of lawmakers to accuse the president of racist behavior after his comments were reported on Thursday.
During a meeting with lawmakers at the White House, Trump reportedly decried immigration from “shithole countries” like Haiti and El Salvador and asked why the country can’t take more immigrants from countries like Norway.
Trump denied on Friday that he used such language. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who was in the room for the meeting, said Trump had in fact used the language.
Feinstein said that Trump’s comments made it more difficult for Americans abroad — “soldiers, diplomats and businesses” — to do their jobs.
“We all need to stop pretending that there are no consequences when the most powerful person in the world espouses racist views and gives a wink and a nod to the darkest elements in our society,” she added.
“If the president can’t control himself and lead this country with the authority, dignity and leadership it requires, then he shouldn’t be the president,” Feinstein added, “There’s no room for racism in the Oval Office.”
Trump attacked Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, earlier this week after she released the transcript of a committee interview with the co-founder of the research firm behind a controversial dossier containing allegations of ties between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia.
In a tweet on Wednesday, Trump called the senator’s actions “disgraceful,” dubbing her “Sneaky Dianne Feinstein.”
