Trump - Less than 3 weeks ago:

REPORTER: Does it concern you that many people saw that tweet as racist + that white nationalist groups are finding common cause with you on that point?

TRUMP: "It doesn't concern me because many people agree with me."
Trump: "I will do whatever is necessary to stop an invasion of our country. That's what it is."
(April 2019)
