Trump Claims This Morning That He Is ‘The Least Racist Person In The World’

Before leaving for Jamestown, Va, President Trump spoke to press on the White House lawn and expressed his lack of remorse regarding comments he made about Rev. Al Sharpton, Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, and the city of Baltimore as a whole.

"I think I’m helping myself," he said, "Because I’m pointing out the tremendous corruption … in Baltimore and other Democratic run cities."

"I’m the least racist person there is anywhere in the world."

This statement comes in the wake of recent comments Trump made about Baltimore's crime rates and lack of appropriate leadership.

"Those people are living in hell in Baltimore," he continued, "They’re largely African-American. They really appreciate it."

Trump repeated an earlier claim that Cummings has cost the city of Baltimore 'billions'.

He accused Cummings of being at fault for some of Baltimore's more impoverished areas, even though Cummings himself is not involved in city government.

This also isn't the first time Trump has claimed that he is the least racist person in the world, as he has publicly made such a claim six times earlier.
