“Obama Increased Racism in The U.S.” Rick Santorum


Rick Santorum, Former Sen. R-Pa., said earlier former President Barack Obama could have used his power to bring the nation together but ended up increasing racism in the U.S. by the way he handled police shootings. Santorum, a conservative political commentator for CNN, made the accusation during a heated “State of the Union” panel discussion Sunday about racism in the United States.

 

Jean-Pierre commented that there was an “uproar” after Obama’s 2008 election as we had the first black president.

“And what really Donald Trump had done as he tapped into it because let’s not to forget he started his political career talking about birtherism, being the spokesperson of birtherism,” she said.

“He saw something as well and tapped into that, tapped into that racism,” she said.

Santorum disagreed.

“What’s being ignored here is the role that Barack Obama played in all this,” he said. “I mean you just can’t go from well, we elected our first black president to all of a sudden we get Donald Trump. There was something in between those two things.”

Jean-Pierre interrupted him just to clarify that Obama’s election in 2008 “tapped into something in this country.”

Santorum replied: “The thing it tapped into was that many, many, many people saw Barack Obama being just that, doing more to exacerbate racism in this country.”

“How?” asked Jean-Pierre. “What did he do?”

“Every time there was a controversy where someone in color was involved, he took the side of, many times, against the police ― he did it over and over and over again,” he said.
