Rand Paul: ‘Unfair’ To Call President Trump A Racist

Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky came to President Donald Trump’s defense Sunday, arguing it is unfair to label Trump a racist over his allegedly calling some third-world countries as “shitholes.”

“I think it’s unfair then to sort of all of a sudden paint him, ‘Oh well, he’s a racist,’ when I know, for a fact, that he cares very deeply about the people in Haiti because he helped finance a trip where we were able to get vision back for 200 people in Haiti,” Senator Paul (R-KY) argued on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“You can’t have an immigration compromise if everybody’s out there calling the president a racist,” Paul added. “They’re actually destroying the setting. And he’s a little bit of it, but both sides now are destroying the setting in which anything meaningful can happen on immigration.”
