Congressman Frank Pallone called President Trump a “racist” during a Black History Month event on Saturday.
Encouraging the audience at the Monmouth County Democrats Black American Caucus to be active and aware of racism like Martin Luther King, Pallone said, “the guy in the White House – he’s a racist. He also doesn’t believe there’s any role in government other than his own ideology,” according to the Asbury Park Press.

Of course, Donald Trump was never accused of being racist until he ran for office as a Republican.
