MSNBC's Hayes: Trump's Base Wants 'An Ethnically Pure America'

January 12, 2019 | 10:28 AM EST

During Thursday's edition of All In With Chris Hayes, the eponymous host joined a long list of cable TV personalities who have smeared President Trump's supporters or anyone supportive of building a wall on the southern border with Mexico as racist. According to Hayes, "Donald Trump is at the border and shutting down the government...because he almost certainly correctly thinks his political fortunes are dependent on...people animated by bigotry and fear."  Hayes ultimately concluded that "what they want is an ethnically pure America."
