Top NBC reporter brazenly denies Trump prefers white immigrants: ‘I’m not sure where you’re getting that’

Published

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.”

Time magazine published the photograph one week into a federal election campaign with Trudeau's Liberal Party in a tight contest against the Conservatives led by Andrew Scheer.

Trudeau, 47, whose party won a landslide victory in 2015, has already been under attack for an ethics lapse and other controversies.

The black-and-white photograph shows Trudeau, then 29, wearing a turban and robes with his face, neck and hands darkened at a gala party in 2001.

A veteran teacher explains why Trump is incapable of learning

Published

While dyslexia has been mentioned now and then as one of the reasons Donald Trump is so ignorant of what it takes to govern in a free society, I want to explore it as foundational to his inability to learn and grow while in office—and also as a way to link disparate troubling elements in his makeup.
