Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) tore into President Donald Trump on Tuesday after the president referred to former aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman as "that dog" on Twitter.


After being asked by CNN's John Berman to react to Trump's latest attack on his former aide, Wilson linked his new insult to other incidents of racism that have been documented around the United States in recent months.

"Everyone is a target," she said. "We're finding that college students, they're calling the police because they went to sleep in the dorm. A little girl was selling water on the side of the street and they called the police. And the president of the United States was calling a woman of color a dog? How dare he! How dare he call anyone a dog!"

She then linked Trump's frequent attacks on black Americans for having "low IQs" to neo-Nazis feeling that they can proudly march in the streets of American cities.

"LeBron James said it correctly when he said racism has always existed, but President Trump has emboldened the racists to come forward without any fear of punitive actions," she said.
