Eric Trump, the president’s son, appeared on Fox and Friends this morning to defend his father against charges of racism. “He does not see race. He’s the least racist person I have ever met in my entire life. It’s total nonsense,” Trump said. “My father sees one color: green. He cares about the economy.”
Allegations of his being racist have swirled around the president since last week when he reportedly questioned why the so many immigrants from certain countries are allowed to emigrate to the U.S. He allegedly used an expletive to describe the countries, that many believe to be racially motivated.
Over the weekend the president defended himself against the charges, telling reporters he is the “least racist person you will ever interview.” The Trump administration has advocated for changes to U.S. immigration policy that increases border security, ends chain migration and visa lottery programs. But the president has also expressed a desire to find a permanent solution for the DACA program, which he ended last September.
