Newly-elected Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez compared the administration of President Donald Trump to the Jim Crow era and the “mid-19th century” at the Latino Political Power Summit on Tuesday.

Perez compared his feelings on the current era to the landing of a plane and instructions from flight attendants to turn back clocks. “I feel so frequently today like we should be setting our clocks back to Jim Crow.

Perez, the ‘establishment’ candidate in a hotly contested DNC race, began a sprint to the left immediately following his victory. A day after he won the DNC election, Perez peddled the conspiracy theory that Russia and the Trump campaign “rigged” the 2016 presidential election.
