'Donald Trump is unsafe to the future of America, and will destroy what makes us so unique and so special...'

Democratic presidential contender Beto O'Rourke said on CNN's "State of then Union" Sunday that if you vote for President Donald Trump then you are probably racist.

You said to me last week that you thought President Trump was a white nationalist. I just wonder, sir, President Trump won your home state of Texas by nine points, nearly 63 million Americans voted for him, do you think it is racist to vote for President Trump in 2020? "It's not just that he's a bad guy and putting forth white nationalist policies, but the violent organizations that have these beliefs see him as their leader, I think that's a very important message, not just for the soul of this country, which is important, but to make people recognize, especially white America, this is risky for everybody".

Johnson and Melber began their discussion by examining the confrontational political ad that Julián Castro ran on Trump's favorite morning show, Fox and Friends, that geo-targeted Trump's New Jersey golf club where the president is vacationing.

I think it is really hard.

"Donald Trump is unsafe to the future of America, and will destroy what makes us so unique and so special and the genius that we represent to ourselves and to the rest of the world", O'Rourke continued. That is ambitious, that is not fearful of the future and does not try to divide us on our differences.
