Cokie Roberts: Trump Created ‘A Lot of Hatred and Hostility Between Groups In This Country’

On Monday’s “CNN Newsroom,” journalist Cokie Roberts argued that presumptive GOP presidential nominee has created “a lot of hatred and hostility between groups in this country, after a half century of us trying to bring people together.”

Roberts said, that Trump has had “a very hateful impact.” And “What he’s done is create a lot of hatred and hostility between groups in this country, after a half century of us trying to bring people together. I mean, Brooke, I come out of the Jim Crow South. I’ve lived through this history, and had a cross burned on my parents’ lawn because of supporting civil rights. Having this whole — two generations trying to bring America together and be one country, and to suddenly have some — a leader come in and try to break that all apart and pit groups against each other, is very discouraging.”
