Trump Says 'I'm Not A Racist,' Following Reports He Used Vulgar Slur

In remarks at his golf club in Florida on Sunday night, President Trump said Democrats don’t want to reach a deal on immigration, and he told reporters he’s “the least racist person you have ever interviewed.” Trump made those remarks days after he reportedly spoke in crude terms in a White House meeting about immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.

NPR’s Scott Horsley (@HorsleyScott) joins Here & Now‘s Robin Young to discuss the fallout.
