More than 80 percent of Democrats see Trump as biased against black people, according to the poll, while less than 20 percent of Republicans feel the same way.

Pollsters also found that about 80 percent of black people think Trump is biased against them, and about two-thirds of Hispanics agree that the president is biased against black people.

The poll was conducted from Jan. 15 to 18 among 1,005 adults. The margin of error is 3.5 percentage points.

The poll comes after reports that Trump earlier this month referred to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations as "shithole countries" during a meeting at the White House.

Trump faced widespread backlash and accusations of racism for the reported comments. Trump has pushed back against the reports and denied he is racist.

Earlier this month, he called himself the "least racist person you will ever interview."
