Rice: Trump Admin ‘Has Been Racist to Its Core’ for 3.5 Years

Rice: Trump Admin ‘Has Been Racist to Its Core’ for 3.5 Years

June 19, 2020

Friday on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice commented on Mary Elizabeth Taylor resigning as assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs because of President Trump’s response to racial tensions in the country.

“You know, to serve an administration which has been racist to its core for the last three-and-a-half years, from comparing the peaceful protesters at Charlottesville to white supremacists, call white supremacists very fine people, all the way through to the recent weeks where the administration has disparaged the Black Lives Matter movement, disparaged peaceful protesters, and made plain they prefer to stand by a Confederate legacy than a modern America, it’s been an administration whose record on race is just disgraceful,” Rice said.

“…[W]hat we’ve seen in recent days is not that different, frankly, than what we’ve seen over the course of the last three-and-a-half years,” Rice added.

To paraphrase Mary McCarthy’s famous quote, every word Rice said is a lie, including “the” and “and.”
