AP Interview: Jesse Jackson slams 'dangerous' Trump rhetoric

AP Interview: Jesse Jackson slams 'dangerous' Trump rhetoricThe Rev. Jesse Jackson has condemned recent outbursts by President Donald Trump targeting lawmakers of color and inner cities as “dangerous, divisive and diversionary” and says he believes they are fueling white nationalist extremism. In an interview, the longtime civil rights leader called Trump’s vilification of African Americans an attempt to divert the nation’s attention from its real problems, including Russian election interference, border detentions and a tax cut benefiting the richest Americans at the expense of the poor. “The real debate is that a foreign power is expected to be involved in our election next year,” Jackson said, referring to former special counsel Robert Mueller’s warning of a repeat of Russian interference in the 2020 elections.
