Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) says, “we got white folks” that are “on the brink of destroying” this country. Which is amazing at a time when “we have a president that looks like the slaves that they brought over here.”

Speaking at the Rainbow Push Wall Street Economic Summit in New York earlier this month, Rangel said, “It’s really amazing, that at this point in time when we have a president that looks like the slaves that they brought over here, when we had a black mayor, when we have a black attorney general, where state legislators all over are beginning to become of color, we got white folks now that are prepared on the brink of destroying the whole damn country, including the Supreme Court.”

“And so instead of just fighting for equality and human rights and justice, we have to fight to save this damn country that has abused us over these years,” Rangel said.

Rangel went on to criticize Donald Trump who he says has “specialized in being able to express in very vulgar terms, all of the racism and the undercurrents of frustrated people in this country.”
