( - Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D.-Texas) delivered an address in his hometown of El Paso, Texas, on Thursday in which he said that President Donald Trump “openly favors” a single race, religion and kind of people in America.

“We have a racism in America that is as old as America itself, an intolerance towards those who do not look like, or pray like, or love like, or speak like, the majority in this country,” O’Rourke said.

“That is part of our story, and we absolutely need to tell it, to face it, to acknowledge it, if we are ever going to change it,” he said.

“But we have always tried until now to change that,” O’Rourke said, “until this president, who so openly speaks in racist terms, who so openly favors one race, one religion, one kind of people in this country over every other kind of people in this country.”
