Trump: Democrats Love Using The ‘Race Card’

President Trump told Fox News on Tuesday morning that Democrats are “pulling out the race card” to criticize his policies, according to Newsmax.

A “Fox & Friends” interviewer asked Trump about TV talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel, who joked during the Academy Awards show Sunday night: “Maybe this is not a popular thing to say, but I want to say thank you to President Trump. Remember last year when it seemed like the Oscars were racist? That’s gone. Thanks to him.”

The president responded: “It just seems that the other side, whenever they are losing badly, they pull out the race card, and I've watched it for years. I've watched it against Ronald Reagan. I've watched it against so many other people, and they always like pulling out the race card.” Regarding whether he considers the racism charge a personal affront, Trump remarked: “I can’t because I consider it a very serious violation when they say it, and I have to write it off as being purely politics.”

The president alleged in a Breitbart News interview that those attending the awards show were “focused so hard on politics that they didn’t get the act together at the end.” He said “it was a little sad (and) took away from the glamour of the Oscars” when actor Warren Beatty announced the wrong winner for best picture.

Kimmel told the audience: “As you know, I don’t have to tell anybody, the country is divided right now. I’ve been getting a lot of advice, people telling me, you need to say something to unite us. … I’m not the man to unite this country, but it can be done. … There are millions of people watching right now, and if every one of you took a minute to reach out to one person you disagree with, someone you like and have a positive, considerate conversation, not as liberals or conservatives, but as Americans, if we would all do that, we would make America great again. We really could. It starts with us.”
