'I Know What's in My Heart': Watch Emotional 'Outnumbered' Debate on Trump & Race
Melissa Francis pushed back on the criticism of President Trump in an emotional segment on "Outnumbered" today.
Juan Williams started by saying it's "unbelievable" to see white supremacists praising Trump and claiming he supports them after he condemned both sides in the weekend's Charlottesville riots.
Williams said there is only one side when it comes to the actions of neo-Nazis and KKK members.
"People who fought against World War II against Nazis in a U.S. uniform did not want to hear, 'both sides have something to say here,'" he said.
Francis said that is not what the president stated and he never said there was "equal blame" for both sides.
Marie Harf countered that Trump said there were "very fine people" on both sides, adding "it was clear what he was talking about."
Francis said the argument over President Trump and racism has now gone to a place where both sides have made up their minds.
"I am so uncomfortable having this conversation. ... I know what’s in my heart and I know that I don't think anyone is different, better or worse based on the color of their skin, but I feel like there is nothing any of us can say right now without being judged," said Francis.
Harris Faulkner followed up by saying the country can have this conversation successfully.
"We can have this conversation. And it's OK if we cry having it," said Faulkner.
Trump earned widespread criticism on Tuesday when he condemned violent "alt-left" protesters who rallied against white nationalists in Charlottesville.
Watch the discussion above.
Earlier today, Republican political strategist Gianno Caldwell made a tearful condemnation of Trump's remarks on "Fox & Friends."
"Good people don't pal around with Nazis," he said, adding it's "troubling" to see people defending the statements.
