President Donald Trump's personal lawyer posted a collage of photos of himself with black friends on Twitter to demonstrate that he is not racist after the president was harshly criticized for stressing that both sides were to blame for the violence at the white supremacist demonstration in Charlottesville in which a woman was killed.

As part of the president's assertion that both sides were to blame for the violence, Trump called some of those in the white supremacist demonstration "very fine people."

When Talking Points Memo asked Cohen what the collage was supposed to prove and why he posted the tweet when he did, Trump's lawyer wrote, "All morning I am receiving horrific comments about being anti-black, racist, etc.. for supporting Trump. It's just wrong!"

Cohen said he knows Trump "and his heart" and insisted that the president "doesn't have a racist bone in his body."

"Trump is not a racist and neither am I," he wrote. "I emphatically denounce white supremacy, white nationalism, Nazi beliefs and hatred of anyone based on race, religion, creed, color or sexual orientation."
