ESPN’s Jemele Hill said that she stands by her previous comments that President Trump is a “white supremacist” and a “bigot,” during an appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Wednesday.

Following the violence caused by a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, Hill took to Twitter and wrote a string of tweets directed at Trump and his administration.

Here are some of Hill’s tweets from September 11, 2017:

“The View” co-host Meghan McCain asked Hill if she still stands by what she said.

“I still stand by what I said,” Hill responded. “I don’t think his supporters are white supremacist. What I would say, though, is that they have the benefit of privilege to be able to distance and disassociate themselves from certain issues. Me, as a woman of color, I feel vulnerable to certain behaviors, certain policies, and certain things that he’s said and done.”

“In this time, and in this moment, it feels like people of color are under attack,” Hill continued.

McCain followed up by asking Hill whether she would consider Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson to be a white supremacist.

“I wasn’t talking about Ben Carson. I think we know the names that I was talking about,” Hill explained. “Obviously Steve Bannon, I could go down the list of people who have at very least played footsie with white supremacists.”
