Spike Lee wants to know why people keep questioning whether Donald Trump is a white supremacist.
Academy award-winning film director Spike Lee sat down with CNN’s Anderson Cooper to discuss race and slavery in America. During the conversation, Lee expressed his disdain for Trump, his occupancy of the White House and wondered why, after three years offensive acts, people are still questioning whether he is a racist and a white supremacist.
“Respectfully, why are we still asking if this guy is a white supremacist? I mean, it’s not even a question anymore,” the BlacKkKlansman director said. Lee noted Trump’s Muslim ban, his derogatory words about Mexicans and his choice to not denounce Neo-Nazis, Alt-Right and white supremacists who participated in the 2017 “Unite The Right” Charlottesville rally.
“He can’t make a decision between what’s right and wrong? What’s love and hate? He’s going to be on the wrong side of history, and that’s going to be the first thing that’s attached to him, that quote,” Lee said referring to Trump’s “very fine people” on both sides statement. Cooper added that he was shocked at how dense their views were.
“That’s because the guy in the White House gave them the dog whistle to ‘come on out!’” Lee said.
