http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/07/newt-gingrich-theres-no-evidence-at-all-that-trump-is-a-racist/489908/Over the past year, Donald Trump has alleged that Mexican immigrants are criminals and rapists, called for a ban on Muslims entering the United States, and stated that a Mexican American judge presiding over a Trump University lawsuit was “biased” because of his heritage. In June, House Speaker Paul Ryan described Trump’s criticism of the judge as “the textbook definition of a racist comment.” But a former Speaker of the House and Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich maintains that, while many of Trump’s comments have been misguided, “there’s no evidence at all that Trump is a racist.”
Gingrich is reportedly being vetted as a running mate for Trump...
A woman at Trump’s New Hampshire event asked, “Just to make quickly, homeland security and jobs. Why are we not putting all of our military retirees on that border or in TSA? Get rid of all these hibijabis they wear at TSA. I’ve seen them myself. We need the veterans back in there. They fought for this country. They’ll still do it.”
Trump replied, “And you know, we are looking at that. We are looking at that.”
What the woman meant by her question is that America is less safe because non-white people work for TSA. Instead of clarifying to the woman that all people with dark skin aren’t terrorists, Trump played along and said that he is looking at getting rid of the non-white people who work for TSA.
He replied ‘I understand that’ and ‘We’re looking at that'
...“By appearing to endorse the bigoted views of one of his supporters, Donald Trump is placing all American Muslim women who wear Islamic attire in danger,” said Robert McCaw, the government affairs director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
