Judicial Watch Pres: Mueller's Russia Probe 'Out of Control,' Should Be Shut Down

Author and commentator Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson said President Trump's critics who claim he is a racist do so because they want to turn his supporters against him.

"They are desperate," Peterson said. "Black Americans got worse under Barack Obama than any other time in the history of America."

Tucker Carlson played a clip of CNN analyst Joan Walsh saying that Trump's support is based in Caucasians' "fears of brown people."

"A fear of a changing America is the number one factor that divides a white Trump voter from a white non-Trump voter," Walsh said.

Peterson dismissed the claim, calling the idea of present-day racism "phony" and a ploy to "keep the people angry and ... divided."

He said Democrats have nothing to offer voters after being in control for most of the last 50 years.

"If it was a race issue, why didn't we get better?" Peterson asked, adding that President Obama used minorities for "his own personal gain."
