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."

B-Real you are the one that's way off. But I'm not going to address your theories on Obama, just the ones on Donald Trump. You seem to think that he'd be good for this country but just recall that after being born into a rich family, he managed to have to declare bankruptcy. Now that's not to say that he has NO good ideas. I particularly liked the one he had a few years ago of charging the richest Americans a onetime 14% "wealth" tax which would come close to pulling us out of debt. Of course, he doesn't mention that much now, since he's trying to appeal to Republicans....

To you geniuses who think Donald Trump is just what America needs to get out of the hole, consider his 19 bankruptcies in less than 17 years…averaging one new failed business every 11 months. Even worse, a LOT of people were financially ruined while he "restructured" and moved on....

Ignorance, when someone does not want to open up his or her mind in order to reach a higher level of intelligence, he or she wants to remain blindly stupid in order to justify and rationalize unintelligibly impossible ideas. Last time I checked, “sup” (see first comment) was not part of the Caucasian vernacular, meaning some outside influence outside of the mainstream effected part of that exclusive culture(see United States culture today, it has evolved to what is now, it did not happen overnight). Thus, everyone has the capacity to open their mind further to think more objectively, constructively, and finally fairly.

How could anyone not think he's a racist. It would be different if Trump was asking the question of how Obama got into Harvard with crappy grades, if he actually had any proof of Obama having crappy grades. But he doesn't. He's just making it up. And why would he do that? Because Obama is black. And he doesn't see how a black man could get in Harvard. Even someone who gets into Harvard through affirmative action, is not going to graduate magna *** laude if he isn't smart. They don't fix your grades with affirmative action. So, to get those kind of grades at Harvard, Obama must be pretty darn smart.

There is no race card. I'm stating it FLAT OUT. Many PEOPLE did not want Obama because he is black. They will do absolutely do anything to say he is not american ( when what they mean is he is not white. HE IS AN AMERICAN CITIZEN! HE IS THE PRESIDENT. Disagree with his policy but stop questioning whether he is American that is RACIST. HE is and AMERICAN PERIOD!
