WASHINGTON -- At his Monday evening campaign rally in New Mexico, President Donald Trump touted his support among Hispanic voters, and pointed to a member of his campaign's Hispanic Advisory Council, saying "Who do you like more, the country or the Hispanics?"
Speaking about Steve Cortes, Trump said "He happens to be Hispanic, but I’ve never quite figured it out because he looks more like a WASP than I do."
WASP stands for white Anglo-Saxon Protestant.

two pretty racist comments. But, of course, people will now appear on CNN and Fox News and blame the people who are calling it out instead of Trump. It's the world we live in now. Trump plays on identity politics like none other. But, it's now going to be just another day that our president says that a Hispanic looks white. It's ok for him to do it . But, remember all the outrage when it happened to Zimmerman?
