"CNN’s Don Lemon, the dumbest man on television, insinuated last night while asking a debate ‘question’ that I was a racist, when in fact I am ‘the least racist person in the world.’ Perhaps someone should explain to Don that he is supposed to be neutral, unbiased & fair or is he too dumb (stupid} to understand that,” Trump tweeted.

"No wonder CNN’s ratings (MSNBC’s also) have gone down the tubes - and will stay there until they bring credibility back to the newsroom," he added. "Don’t hold your breath!”

Lemon, one of three moderators of Tuesday night’s primary debate, posed a question to Sen.

“There are people that voted for Donald Trump before that aren't racist; they just wanted a better shake in the economy. And so I would appeal to them,” Klobuchar said. “But I don't think anyone can justify what this president is doing. Little kids literally woke up this weekend, turned on the TV, and saw their president calling their city, the town of Baltimore, nothing more than a home for rats. And I can tell you, as your president, that will stop.”

The president also faced backlash in recent weeks for his comments about a group of minority progressive congresswomen, whom he told to “go back” to their home countries, even though all four are U.S. citizens.

Despite many accusing him of being a racist, Trump insisted Tuesday that he is the “least racist person anywhere in the world.”
