Trump Pledges to Combat ‘Anti-White’ Racism if Elected in 2024

In an interview with Time Magazine, Donald Trump said he believes that white people are being treated with bias on a wide scale.

As Deadline reported, at an event on May 1, President Joe Biden called the long-form interview in Time a must-read. He told the crowd gathered at an Asian American Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander fundraiser at Washington D.C.’s Mayflower Hotel, “Trump did a long interview with TIME magazine. It’s coming out, you gotta read it. It’s a mandatory read. This election is about competing values and competing visions for America,” Biden added. “Trump’s values and visions are ones of anger, hate, revenge, retribution.”

“There are so many things in this interview that are dystopian… What I thought was so shocking is he was admitting things — the monitoring periods, the monitoring women’s cycles is right out of ‘Handmaid’s Tale.’ — @MollyJongFast reacts to Trump’s @TIME magazine interview pic.twitter.com/mZvteS3pi9— Morning Joe (@Morning_Joe) May 1, 2024

“If you look at the Biden Administration, they’re sort of against anybody depending on certain views. 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,” Trump said. “I don’t think it would be a very tough thing to address, frankly. 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.”

The Republican Party at large, have been engaging in a protracted push against DEI, the most emblematic of which is the controversy the party has stirred up around critical race theory. Critical race theory is basically a way of looking at American society through laws and other aspects of the American social structure that perpetuates systemic racism. Although the theory does not appear in any K-12 textbooks, it is mentioned in several proposals governing grade school education from Republican governors, like Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The Republican Party has also been targeting DEI policies and departments at institutions of higher education, claiming that they should not receive state funding because they are discriminatory in nature. 

However, Civil rights leaders like Alvin B. Tillery, the director of the Center for the Study of Democracy and Diversity at Northwestern University and Marc Morial, the president of the National Urban League see the activism of the Republican Party as part of a framework from the days of segregation. Morial told USA Today that the conservatives are “advocating for the return of white privilege” and that “They’re advocating for the policies that were used during a segregated America.”
