President Donald Trump is "the furthest thing from a racist," said investigative reporter and bestselling author Ron Kessler on Newsmax TV's "Newsmax Now."

Kessler said he based his opinion on having known Trump for 20 years.

"As for Donald Trump, he is the furthest thing from a racist, and I can tell you that based on knowing him for two decades," Kessler said Friday, explaining he first got to know the president when they went to Palm Beach to promote one of his books.

"[Trump] imitated the nasal constrictive tones of the blue bloods, the WASPS, they're called, the old guard in Palm Beach, [who were] condemning his club Mar-a-Lago because it admits blacks and Jews. And, to this day, there are actually clubs in Palm Beach that do not admit blacks and Jews," Kessler said.

"So, why aren't they demonstrating against those clubs that actually do discriminate, as opposed to Donald Trump, who admits blacks and Jews to his club?" he asked.

Kessler gave as another example longtime Trump executive, Lynn Patton, who is African-American.

"I've interviewed Lynn Patton, who was for six years a very high ranking, very trusted black executive in the Trump organization," Kessler explained. "She talked about how she's actually considered a member of the family. She's one of the most trusted executives at the Trump organization."

With the problems facing the country, Kessler questioned why the media was focused on the moral integrity of America's historic figures and taking down statues.

"When there are real problems in the country that Donald Trump is trying to solve — unemployment and overregulation, and yet everyone is focused on this issue," he said.

"It's like the Soviet Union, whenever there was a new regime, they would tear down all the statues of the previous regime and even delete the information from textbooks. It's very unhealthy and very unfortunate," he added.
