During a CNN panel discussion on Tuesday, former Reagan aide Jeffrey Lord argued that Donald Trump’s widely condemned comments about Judge Gonzalo Curiel were not, in fact, racist and were instead pointing out racism.

“Will you denounce what Trump said as racist?” asked fellow panel member Van Jones.

“It wasn’t racist,” replied Lord. “He’s calling attention to racism.”
