Democratic presidential hopefuls Elizabeth Warren and Beto O’Rourke both accused President Donald Trump of being a white supremacist.
Their comments came in separate interviews on Wednesday.
Sen. Warren, D-Mass., was asked by The New York Times if she believed the president was a white supremacist. She answered: “Yes.”
“He has given aid and comfort to white supremacists,” Warren said. “He’s done the wink and a nod. He has talked about white supremacists as fine people. He’s done everything he can to stir up racial conflict and hatred in this country.”
O’Rourke, a former congressman from Texas, was asked by MSNBC if the president is a white supremacist.
“He is,” O’Rourke replied. “He’s also made that very clear. He’s sought do dehumanize those who do not look like or pray like the majority here in this country.”
The Washington Post noted that while other candidates have accused the president of being a racist, the remarks by Warren and O’Rourke go further.
The newspaper pointed out Trump, in his address on Monday, urged Americans to condemn white supremacy. And he said on Wednesday he does not like hate, “whether it’s white supremacy, whether it’s any other kind of supremacy.”
Trump has called himself “the least racist person.”
