In an interview with The Breakfast Club

Sponsored
on Wednesday, Obama spoke on a wide range of subjects, from racism to American democracy. His quote about Latino Trump supporters has sparked reactions from the community, in which he stated, “There’s a lot of evangelical Hispanics who, the fact that Trump says racist things about Mexicans, or puts undocumented workers in cages, they think that’s less important than the fact that he supports their views on gay marriage or abortion.”

“You’ve seen created, in Republican politics, this sense that white males are victims … Which obviously doesn’t gibe with both history and data and economics … How you unwind that is gonna be not something that is done right away.”
