Donna Rice Hughes: Van Jones 'Whitelash' Claim on Trump Win Is 'Hogwash'

By    |   Wednesday, 09 Nov 2016 07:54 PM

Donna Rice Hughes tells Newsmax TV that CNN commentator Van Jones was wrong to characterize Republican Donald Trump's surprise presidential win on Tuesday as racist.

"This was a whitelash against a changing country," Jones said early Wednesday morning as it became clear Trump had beaten Democrat Hillary Clinton. "It was whitelash against a black president in part. And that's the part where the pain comes."

"I say hogwash to that," Hughes, a Trump supporter and CEO of the internet safety company Enough is Enough, told Newsmax TV's "Steve Malzberg Show." "It's absolutely not. I believe that people of all colors, all races, all genders got out, and they voted for change and they are looking forward with hope to an America that can be great again, strong again, safe again under Donald Trump and [Vice President-elect] Michael Pence."

The United States elected Barack Obama twice, so it's hard to prove most white people are racist, Hughes asserted.

"We've had our first African-American president, and what's happened with racial relations?" she said. "There is a greater divide."

This election pitted a white female on the Democratic ticket and a white male on the GOP side, she said. "One's an insider, one has a lot of charges of, or at least suspicion of, corruption, long-term corruption, and the other is a rough-and-tumble warrior kind of a guy who... spoke to the heart of the people."
