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."

Was this PR stunt worth it Mr. Trump. You have beens shown to be a racist. Very clearly so. Including your statement re: "the blacks love me". As a New Yorker I'm ashamed at your behavior and I would submit so would your sons in-laws say the same.

@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.
-----------------------------------------------
Why is Bush being brought into this? Because when we questioned his brain, and lack thereof, and questioned his college transcripts, you f u c k i n g Republican retards cried, "Ohhh, noooo - what does that have to do with anything?" Typical, typical, typical. Cannot admit your responsibility for ANYTHING EVER!! YOUUUUUUU people put into the WH, ILLEGALLY, THE WORST PRESIDENT IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES. Thanks to George W. Bush, we will be cleaning up this mess for DECADES!! So, yes - if you want to call into question President Obama's transcripts, then you'd better put on your seatbelt and buckle up because we will destroy the awful, horrible, criminal and murderous legend of YOUR GOD, GEORGE W. BUSH!!

Trump is being a sh*t disturber to get attention. He is purposely vague to start pointless arguments. He does not care about the truth, he just wants to destroy his target.

Trump avoids talking about affirmative action because he does not support it. A.A. does have a role but not everywhere or all the time.

Scheiffer is a very intelligent reporter. He's well skilled in seeing stunts like this one from Trump, which hints at preferential treatment for African-Americans. He may not be racist, but he's 100% manipulating evil.

First attack rule in politics: cast a doubt on your target. Anyone being vague does this intentionally in politics. It's never an accident.

the question came up because obama entered school as a student from kenya & he was a u.s citizen who did not qualify for the program..also i for 1 am also tired of being called racist if i ask any questions..however "the white race did vote obama into office" if we did not come out & vote for him he would not have had the numbers to get elected...i voted for him but i hope he picks up his game and yes i also wanted to see b.c........thanks trump!!

You would think the party would tell him to stop with the stupid questions
and start with real questions, how to get jobs or how to control spending. Not one from his party is saying a thing, if he was Bush do you think any one would have asked that question--no if it was Clinton would they have asked that question no

@Larryp - Affirmative Action has had its day just like unions. Time to take it off the books and support the people who want to work. Let the leeches die on the vine.

#1 - FINALLY, you are hearing what we're saying. YESSSSSSSS, we are blaming Bush for the catastrophe and shambles that he left this country in. YESSSSSSSS!! AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO!! WHY? Because those are the FACTS!! I know that little things like facts make Republicans jumpy and scared, but try real hard and think about it, and maybe you'll get it.

#2 - in keeping with your analogy: Bush borrowed a brand, new shiny car from Clinton. The car had all of the deluxe add-ons, it was shiny, efficient, and all of the other car owners were envious of it when it drove by. But, Georgy got ahold of the wheel and, not only did he run it out of gas, he rolled it, thrashed it, drove it head-on into a tree and then returned it and said, "Thought this car would've held up better - good luck with that!" THAT is the proper analogy, you brainless idiot.
