President Donald Trump asserted on Monday that he has “fantastic relationships” with the black community after he told four congresswomen to “go back” to where they came from.
At a White House meeting with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, Trump was asked if he was experiencing any blowback from the African-American community.
“There’s no racial tension,” the president said, according to a pool report. “We have fantastic relationships with the African American community and I think you’ll see that in 2020.”
Via pooler @DavidNakamura: T"rump says: 'There’s no racial tension.' Trump notes low unemployment for black Americans. 'We have fantastic relationships with the African American community and I think you’ll see that in 2020.' "
