Sen. Kennedy (R) tells WWL-TV Trump is 'not a racist'

Last edited Tue Jan 16, 2018, 03:50 AM - Edit history (2)

In an interview with WWL-TV, Sen. John Kennedy (R) commented on President Donald Trump's alleged remarks made about Haiti and African nations, telling the news source Trump is "not a racist."

Kennedy said if Trump made the comments, then he disagrees with his sentiments; however, he said he is bothered by how racism allegations are thrown around "a little too casually now."

"I wouldn't have put it the way the President put it, and I wish he hadn't have done it if he did it," Kennedy said. "And, Iím sure he wishes he could take it back, and heíll have more to say about it."

Kennedy compared Trump's alleged remarks to Sen. Nancy Pelosi's comments made earlier the same week about "a bunch of white men" working on the immigration bill.

1. Maybe clarify that he is GOP from Louisiana--not a Dem. Some might be confused by the name. nt
