Dem Rep Carson: Trump Is ‘Fanning the Flames of Xenophobia and Islamophobia’

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” discussing President Donald Trump’s executive order restricting travel from seven Muslim-majority countries, Rep. André Carson (D-IN) said President Donald Trump was “fanning the flames of xenophobia and Islamophobia.

Partial transcript as follows:

STEPHANOPOULOS: Well, and Congressman Carson, I wonder if now, based on that Tweet we saw yesterday about the so-called judge, now if he gets a court to agree with him, it raises the question, are they bowing to pressure from the executive branch?

REP. ANDRE CARSON (D), INDIANA: Well, in this case, thank God for the founding fathers, who set up three separate branches of government. And the media acting as the Fourth Estate. I mean his impulsivity concerns me. He’s fanning the flames of xenophobia and Islamophobia and the American people are speaking out against it.
