Despite considering the phrase “black lives matter” a “very, very, very divisive term,” Donald Trump told Bill O’Reilly on Tuesday that he could identify with black Americans’ feeling that the system is fundamentally biased against them. “Well, I’ve been saying, even against me the system is rigged,” he said.
“When I ran for president I could see what is going on with the system, and the system is rigged,” Trump said. “I can really relate it very much to myself.”
More than three-quarters of African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asians between the ages of 18 and 30 believe that Trump is racist, according to a new poll, as do six in 10 young whites. Trump also told O’Reilly that he’s heard people call for a moment of silence for the Dallas sniper.
