Trump Says ‘Anti-White Feeling’ Is a Problem in the U.S.

If elected to a second term in the White House, Donald Trump intends to pursue policies that would address what he says is a “definite anti-white feeling” in America.

“If you look at the Biden Administration, they’re sort of against anybody depending on certain views,” Trump tells TIME in an interview when asked about his supporters who believe anti-white racism now represents a greater problem than anti-Black racism. “They’re against Catholics. They’re against a lot of different people… I think there is a definite anti-white feeling in this country and that can’t be allowed either.”

“I don’t think it would be a very tough thing to address, frankly,” Trump says. “But I think the laws are very unfair right now. And education is being very unfair, and it’s being stifled. But I don’t think it’s going to be a big problem at all. But if you look right now, there’s absolutely a bias against white [people] and that’s a problem.”


In a second term, Trump has vowed to levy taxes and fines against schools he sees as “too woke.” He has also signaled support for dozens of bills targeting diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) policies in higher education that have been filed in statehouses across the country.
