NBC White House correspondent Kelly O'Donnell on Monday said that she knows of no evidence showing that President Donald Trump prefers white immigrants.
"We know the president has had a preference with immigrants from Nordic countries," Mohyeldin noted. "Walk us through the impact on the immigrants. Why now?"
O'Donnell wrongly suggested that Trump has not expressed a racist preference for immigrants.
"I don’t know that the president has expressed a preference for Nordic countries," she said. "That is something where I’m not sure where you’re getting that from."
"He certainly said he has an emphasis on merit-based immigration," O'Donnell added. "And he has talked about that extensively. So that matches up to his rhetoric."
