CNN’s Bakari Sellers schools Jason Miller on Trump’s ‘breeding’ slur: ‘Of course it was derogatory’

Published

on

President Trump tweeted about sanctuary cities in Calfornia, but used the racially infused term, “breeding.”

In an interview with CNN’s Andersen Cooper, Bakari Seller and Jason Miller debated the derogatory term. Sellers took  Miller to school, and reminded him that the language that Trump used is rooted in white nationalist views.

“I think it has a lot to do with cultural issues in this country,” Sellers said. “What he was going to is the heart of the base of this breeding concept that you refer to animals that way, of course it was derogatory. Culturally, there are a lot of people in this country who are afraid of this country becoming browner.”

Miller responded by saying: “I have never heard the president use this charged language that folks are trying to put in his mouth or make it sound like he is making a racist concept. He moved on and didn’t think about it and that is my opinion on it.”
