(Washington, DC) -- First-term Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says there's no doubt in her mind that President Trump is a racist.
In an interview with CBS's 60 Minutes, the 29-year-old New York Democrat claimed Trump uses well-known dog whistles of white supremacy. She pointed to his reaction to the violence surrounding a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
She also blamed Trump for what she said was a "manufactured" crisis involving a caravan of migrants seeking asylum in the U.S. The White House responded to the accusation of racism saying Trump has repeatedly condemned racism and bigotry.
Here's a clip of the 60 MInutes interview highlighting Ocasio-Cortez's accusation.
