ESPN Host Sets Democrats Straight on ‘Racist’ Trump: ‘He’s NOT Against Black People’

ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith overruled the Democrats and the media for continually pushing the false narrative that President Donald Trump is “racist.”

Smith commented on the claims during the Semafor Media Summit, saying he knows Trump and he is not a racist.

“I knew Trump before he ran for the presidency,” Smith said.

“I thoroughly enjoyed talking to him.

“He was a huge sports fan.

“He used to throw a lot of events at  — you know — at his casinos and stuff like that, and I genuinely liked him.

“I didn’t know who this guy was running for president.

“I think he’s changed, but I will tell you this: I think when people call him racist and stuff like that, I’ve never thought of Trump that way.

“He’s not against black people. He’s against all things not named Trump.”

Last year, Smith said that Trump was furious the NFL denied him a chance to buy a team.

“If they screw me over, I am going to show them,” Smith said while paraphrasing comments Trump made about the NFL owners.

“I’m going to get them all back.

“I’m going to run for president of the United States.”

Smith also claimed that Trump was going after the NFL for kneeling as payback.

“The criticism was him politicizing the situation for his own benefit to cause havoc for NFL owners who had screwed him over from becoming, from becoming an NFL owner and being a part of their club,” Smith said.
