Booker Blows Up At Homeland Security Chief: Your Amnesia Is Complicit With Trump’s Racism [VIDEO]

Raw Story reports:

While questioning Nielsen about the DHS’s response to white supremacist hate groups, Booker rant down a litany of all Trump’s past racist remarks and shamed her for claiming she couldn’t recall whether Trump had called African countries “shitholes.”

“The commander in chief, in an Oval Office meeting, referring to people from African countries and Haitians with the most vial and vulgar language — that language festers,” Booker said. “When ignorance and bigotry is alive with power, it’s a dangerous force in our country. Your silence and your amnesia is complicity.”
