Claims by conservatives that liberal faculty members and students on college campuses are intolerant of other views are "highly overblown," President Donald Trump said Thursday.
"I think the numbers are actually much different that people think," Trump told Turning Point USA chief Charlie Kirk in an interview conducted at a youth forum hosted by the White House, The Hill reports.
"If you look what's going on with free speech, with the super-left, with Antifa, with all of these characters — I'll tell you what, they get a lot of publicity.
"But you go to the real campuses and you go all over the country, you go out to the Middle West, you go out even to the coast in many cases, we have tremendous support. I would say we have majority support. I think it's highly overblown. Highly overblown."
Turning Point USA is a conservative activist group which focuses on fighting "intolerance and bias against conservatives in higher education."
