President Trump Is Not a Racist and Neither Are His Comments

President Trump Is Not a Racist and Neither Are His Comments

Wednesday, HUD Secretary Ben Carson rejected claims that President Trump and his comments about the 4 Democratic freshman congresswomen are racist. 

“I have an advantage of knowing the President very well,” Secretary Carson said in a TV interview. “He’s not a racist and his comments are not racist, but he loves the country very much and, you know, he has a feeling that those who represent the country should love it as well.”

He added that President Trump’s policies have resulted in minorities being lifted out of poverty through expanded work opportunities, and said a racist would not be interested in helping minority communities. 

Secretary Carson also discussed the “opportunity zones” program, which aims to make it easier for investors to take advantage of tax breaks to help benefit low-income communities. 

He also said he rejects the idea of victimhood, pointing to his own situation to show how people can overcome poverty situations to become successful. 

“I have to look at my own situation, born and growing up in dire poverty with a lot of negativity around me, but also, recognizing that I lived in a place where, you know, through the help of my mother, who helped me to realize that I wasn’t a victim, that I had access to all kinds of things,” said Secretary Carson. 

He noted that he was able to go on and become a neurosurgeon and then a cabinet member. “These are things that we want people to recognize in our nation and that’s why we want to create opportunities for them,” he said.
