Homophobic? Racist? Trump handles CNN’s Don Lemon like a boss

donald-trump-lemonIn an effort to give Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump a chance to respond to his critics, CNN host Don Lemon asked him Wednesday if he was racist or a homophobe.

Lemon once again brought up the New Hampshire town hall meeting where Trump didn’t correct a man who said President Barack Obama is a foreign-born Muslim.

The real estate magnate said if he were confronted with a similar scenario in the future, he would probably handle it the same way.

“I don’t think I have to defend President Obama,” he said.

When asked whether Muslims are a problem, Trump said “A certain segment are certainly a problem.” He added that American Muslims believe we have a bigger problem with radical Islam than non-Muslim Americans.

Lemon then asked, “Do you think that you are homophobic?”

“No. I think that I’m a very nice person. I love people,” he answered.

“Some people may perceive you as racist,” Lemon said, switching gears. “Answer that.”

“So I just did a speech for the African-American Chamber of Commerce in South Carolina,” Trump said. “They just wrote the most beautiful letter I’ve seen in a long time, saying how unfairly I’ve been treated by the press.”

CNN reported that Trump spoke to a half-filled room of mostly white people at that particular event.

“The dais was packed with people,” Trump said. “And CNN in particular made me look bad.”
