California Attorney General Xavier Becerra claimed this Sunday that President Trump has announced himself to be racist with recent comments calling Haiti, El Salvador, and several African nations “shithole countries.”
“In every respect what he is showing us is that he is a racist,” Becerra said while speaking on Fox News this Sunday.

“Let me put it to you this way,” Becerra continued. “Mental instability, mendacity, now bigotry, having any one of those in the White House is dangerous, having the combination, that’s lethal.”
Becerra, a known critic of the Trump administration, has fought with the White House on issues of immigration and the environment before. He joined several California Democrats last week in attacking Trump over his comments made Thursday during a bipartisan meeting with lawmakers in the White House on immigration.
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Trump said, referring to immigrants with Temporary Protected Status from Haiti, El Salvador, and some African nations.
Trump then asked why America was not allowing more immigrants from Norway, whose prime minister Trump recently met up with.
Other California Democrats branded the comments disgraceful, with the state’s lieutenant governor, Gavin Newsom, petitioning for the president’s resignation in a recent Facebook post, and Representative Maxine Waters calling for impeachment.
“You’re a joke and a racist, President Donald J. Trump,” Newsom wrote on Facebook. “Resign.”
“No longer can Members of Congress, particularly Republicans, stand with such a dangerous, disturbed, and deceitful man who is a threat to everything for which America, the greatest democracy on earth, stands,” Waters said in a statement. “Congress has a constitutional responsibility to impeach him without delay.”
