In an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper on Tuesday night, filmmaker Spike Lee said it is not even question anymore if President Donald Trump is a white supremacist. Lee also called any attempt to contextualize Trump's remarks following Charlottesville "subterfuge."
"Respectfully, why are we still asking if this guy's a white supremacist? I mean it's not even a question anymore. I mean the Muslim ban, all Mexicans are rapists, murderers, drug dealers," Spike Lee said on 'Anderson Cooper 360.'
"Do you think he's going to get reelected?" Cooper asked.
"Can I get on my knees now and pray?" Lee responded.
"There is now a movement among Republicans to rewrite the history of what the president said about very fine people... Because the president said very fine people on both sides he was specifically referencing Friday night in Charlottesville, which is the night of the tiki torch [march]," Cooper said.
"Not buying it," Lee cut off Cooper.
"You know what that is? Subterfuge. Shenanigans," he added.
