Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says "no question" Trump is a racist in 60 Minutes interview (CBS News link): In a 60 Minutes interview that touched on a number of subjects, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said there's "no question" President Trump is racist. The comment came after correspondent Anderson Cooper asked Ocasio-Cortez, "Do you believe President Trump is a racist?"
Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, called the president, "a symptom of a problem."
"The president certainly didn't invent racism," Ocasio-Cortez said, "But he's certainly given a voice to it and expanded it and created a platform for those things."
Mod: And then, by golly, there is this.
What's the point: The leading figures in the US government right now are not popular. For the first time during Trump's presidency, though, Trump is more disliked than Pelosi.
