Donald Trump Bristles at Claim He's a Racist

4/28/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump says it's "terrible" the host of CBS'  "Face the Nation" accused him of racism.

Donald Trump Racist

Trump tells TMZ ... "That is a terrible statement for a newscaster to make.  I am the last person that such a thing should be said about."

Bob Schieffer delivered a scathing statement against Trump Wednesday night on the "CBS Evening News," reacting to Trump's insinuation that President Barack Obama may not have had the grades to get into Harvard.

Schieffer said, "That's just code for saying he got into law school because he's black.  This is an ugly strain of racism that's running through this whole thing."

We asked Trump if he was suggesting Obama got into Harvard Law School through affirmative action.  He said, "Affirmative action is out there.  It's a program that is available. But I have no idea whether it applies in this case.  I'm not suggesting anything."

Trump would not say if he supports or opposes affirmative action.  But he's clearly trying to douse the flames he ignited, by saying, "Grades are the least important aspect of somebody being president.  It's not a big subject for me."

Artie, run for president.


Everyone Boycott the NBA, so we're not accused of being racist. How dare us watch such a racist sport that allows a bunch of men to become zillionaires.

Please, for the good of the nation, boycott basketball.

@tgrfan42069 - yeah, because if anyone knows about bad, covered-up grades, it's your god, George W. Bush who would've failed all of his classes had Poppy not been involved. Talk about someone getting into Yale without merit? He couldn't have completed a course at ITT Tech.

typical obama supporter always bringing bush into the argument.what does bush have to do with obama getting bad grades at one college then all of a sudden getting accepted to harvard?? anyone with half a brain could see a red flag there.there are many people who are very intelligent who dont get into harvard.yet YOUR god obama gets failing grades at one college but is good enough to get into harvard.btw i never voted for bush.nice try though.

STACY    

Is not everyone in the USA aware when a celebrity voices their opinion we are all supposed to listen?! She's a puke, anything goes with Cher. How many concerts and videos has she made with see-through clothes on singing to a Navy ship full of men. Kind of hypocritical. She needs to go back to singing and entertaining. That's her job....
