Brian Karem implied that a significant portion of the president’s supporters are motivated by racial divisions.
CNN analyst Brian Karem, the White House Correspondent for Playboy magazine, said that much of Trump’s remaining base consists of “David Duke, white supremacists, and the Nazi Party.”
“As [Trump’s] support has slipped slightly, you’ve seen his rhetoric go farther and farther to the extreme to embrace a base that includes David Duke and white supremacists and the Nazi Party,” Karem said.
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer interjected, saying that Trump has not embraced those groups.
“That’s what’s left in that group,” Karem responded, implying that much, if not most, of Trump’s base were white supremacists. “There are a lot of people in the group that belong to those particular [groups].”
In the wake of white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Trump condemned the groups, even signing a joint resolution to that effect.
