In the latest episode of "Reality Check" on Fox Nation, host David Webb discussed civil rights and criminal justice with "The Five" panelist Juan Williams.

Webb said that President Donald Trump is frequently attacked as a racist or as engendering racist policies, specifically naming people like New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker.

He said those who criticize Trump say that he is unfriendly to minority communities.

"Is President Trump racist?" Webb asked Williams.

"I don't think there's much doubt about it," Williams said. "Yes."

Webb asked Williams to explain why he felt that way:

Williams said that his latest book, "What the Hell Do You Have to Lose" both uses a phrase Trump uttered during the campaign while making promises to help minorities, and describes what he called "Trump's war on civil rights."

Williams said Webb should notice how Trump called former adviser Omarosa Manigault-Newman a "dog" and repeatedly refers to Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) as a "low IQ individual."

He said Trump also played a role in spreading the controversial contention that President Obama was not born in the United States.

"[He called] Mexicans rapists and thieves," Williams added.

Webb said that the definition of a racist is a person who demonstrates through actions that "one ethnicity is superior to the other."

"Where have you ever heard Trump say that?" he asked.

Williams alleged that Trump's family was involved in housing discrimination in New York City when the Trump family company was run by the president's late father, Fred Trump Sr.

He reminded Webb of the time in which Trump strongly sided with the prosecution of five minority youths from the 1989 "Central Park Five" incident in which a white woman was raped and nearly killed in Central Park.

Trump was accused of inflaming the case when he took out full page newspaper ads calling for the return of the death penalty in New York State.

The men were convicted but later had their convictions vacated after serving more than six years in prison.
