President Donald Trump's nominee for the Department of Agriculture's main scientist once wrote progressives are "liars, race traders, and race 'traitors,'" on a now-defunct blog, CNN reported.

Sam Clovis, on the website for his radio show "Impact with Clovis," wrote in 2011 the "current crop" of Republican candidates for president needed to "call out the progressives for what they are – liars, race traders and race 'traitors.'"

Although the blog is no longer online at its original source, it can be read on The Internet Archive Wayback Machine.

Also in 2011, Clovis referred to W.E.B. DuBois as "the first race-trader" for supporting President Woodrow Wilson in his 1912 campaign, though the civil rights icon later sided against him once he was in office.

"Wilson was a progressive and a racist. In my books, the two were, are, and will remain, synonomous [sic]," Clovis wrote.

"Like putting the frog in the pot then turning up the heat, minorities have been enslaved by government operatives who care nothing for the nation and everything for power," he continued. "Someday, men and women of color will wake up to the incredible deception that has been visited on their communities. Someday, these wonderful, courageous Americans will rebuff collective dependency and will embrace individual accountability and the covenant we find in our Constitution."

He also called President Barack Obama a "Maoist" and a "socialist," and said he had "no experience at anything other than race baiting and race trading as a community organizer."

"The president, like the rest of us, is clearly a product of his upbringing, his associates, his education and his experience," Clovis wrote. "He was brought up by socialists to be a socialist. His associations were socialists or worse, criminal dissidents who were bent on overthrowing the government of the United States. He has no experience at anything other than race baiting and race trading as a community organizer. He has never run anything.

"Finally, his education at some of the best colleges in America was deeply influenced by socialists or worse on those campuses. He supposedly earned degrees in political science and law, but his actions reflect a shallow education and chronic underachievement in nearly every thing he has done."
