Lieu: ‘The President of the United States Is Intentionally Enabling White Supremacists’

On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber,” Representative Ted Lieu (D-CA) declared that President Trump is enabling white supremacists on purpose.

Lieu said, “that was an abomination of a press conference. There can now be no ambiguity that the president of the United States is intentionally enabling white supremacists. And I call [on] all Republican members of Congress to disavow President Trump and his remarks. … These are some of his strongest supporters, but he shouldn’t be playing to them. He is president of all of America, and there’s not many sides to this. There’s a side of hatred and bigotry, and there’s everybody else. And now, today, we know where the president stands, and that is completely unacceptable.”
