New York 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 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.
This all comes days after a video showing Ocasio-Cortez dancing as part of a film project was unearthed and disseminated across the internet.
