During an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union this weekend, Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson said Donald Trump is “clearly” racist, citing Trump’s history of “incendiary” racial comments.

At the time, Johnson and correspondent Brianna Keilar were discussing Trump’s recent assurance that he was looking into a suggestion to replace the TSA’s “heebiejabis” with military veterans.

“He has said 100 things that would disqualify anyone else from running for president but doesn’t seem to affect him,” said Johnson on Sunday. “That statement in and of itself—it’s racist.”

After Johnson named several other examples of Trump’s disqualifying speech, Keilar pressed Johnson on whether he believed the presumptive Republican nominee was himself racist.

“Based on his statements, clearly,” said Johnson. “If the statements are being made is that not reflective? I mean if you look up the definition of racism, calling a U.S.-born Hispanic ‘Mexican’ and [questioning] his inability to judge others?”

“I think I’m now semi-quoting Paul Ryan,” added Johnson, referencing the House Speaker who condemned Trump’s comments as “textbook” racist while somehow still endorsing the man who made them.
