Republican strategist Steve Schmidt called out people who keep insisting that Donald Trump isn’t racist because he has a good “heart.”
The GOP strategist was speaking to MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace about immigration when he slammed Trump’s racism and the people who still believe he isn’t racist.
“I think we’ve made a big mistake in recent years, Nicolle, trying to analyze what’s in people’s hearts,” Schmidt said. “Frankly, I don’t care what’s in Donald Trump’s heart. I care about the outcome, I care what comes out of his mouth.”
Schmidt went on to point out just about every racist thing Trump has done and said since he began his campaign. He explained that Trump started off by talking about “rapists and the murderers” from Mexico, said a judge was “disqualified for service from the federal bench” because of his heritage, implemented a Muslim ban and committed the “moral travesty” of Charlottesville, Virginia.
“Over and over again,” Schmidt said of Trump’s racist displays. “Including the release this weekend of an ad where Team Trump has fully embraced and embodied the spirit of George Wallace.”
Schmidt argued government’s weekend shows “incredible ineptitude—the ministerial management of government by the majority party. Just extraordinary, and it makes us look like a banana republic from abroad.”
