Democratic presidential contender Beto O'Rourke said on CNN's "State of then Union" Sunday that if you vote for President Donald Trump then you are probably racist. Elizabeth Warren, who said Trump "winks and nods at white supremacists" and that "when the white supremacists call Donald Trump one of their own, I tend to believe them". "It's not just that he's a bad guy and putting forth white nationalist policies, but the violent organizations that have these beliefs see him as their leader, I think that's a very important message, not just for the soul of this country, which is important, but to make people recognize, especially white America, this is unsafe for everybody".

"I think it's really hard", O'Rourke responded, before listing off all the reasons why Trump was racist. After everything that we've seen from his time as a candidate in 2016, to his repeated warnings of invasions to his repeated calls to send them back, sending back people who are USA citizens, sending back people who were born in this country, his description of white nationalists and Klansmen and neo-Nazis as very fine people and warning of Muslims being and attempting to ban them from entry into this country and his transgender troop ban and his attack on anyone who does not look like or pray like or love like a majority of the country, yes Donald Trump is unsafe to the future of America and will destroy what makes us so unique and so special and the genius that we represent to ourselves and to the rest of the world.

"Donald Trump is risky to the future of America, and will destroy what makes us so unique and so special and the genius that we represent to ourselves and to the rest of the world", O'Rourke said.

After calling Trump supporters racists, O'Rourke urged Republicans instead to support a candidate who will bring "this very divided and highly polarized country together".

The U.S. doesn't need a president who will "try to divide us on our differences", he said.
