Eboni Williams pushed back today against critics who have been suggesting Donald Trump is a racist.
The Republican presidential candidate was called out by many yesterday for not disavowing an endorsement from former KKK leader David Duke.
Asked on Outnumbered whether she believes Trump is racist, Williams responded, “I don’t, because I understand what an actual racist is.”
“I think that that is a term that many of us in America don’t really understand the nature of. And we apply it in a too broad, incorrect way,” she continued.
“Now, has he made statements that kind of target the xenophobic nature of some of this country? Of course. But I don’t believe he himself is a racist. That is my take on that.”
