"My father sees one color: green," Trump said during an interview on "Fox & Friends" "He cares about the economy."

"He does not see race. He's the least racist person I have ever met in my entire life. It's total nonsense."


President Trump has faced accusations of racism in recent days after reports he referred to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as "shithole countries" and asked why the U.S. should take in immigrants from those places.

The president this past weekend pushed back against accusations of racism, calling himself the "least racist person you will ever interview."

On Tuesday, he said he wants immigrants from "everywhere."

“I want them to come in from everywhere. Everywhere,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office when asked about his comments.

His reported comments have helped derail talks on spending and immigration legislation ahead of a Jan. 19 funding deadline to prevent a government shutdown.
