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."

White America - Black people do not have to PLAY the race card. Racism is still a reality in our lives. Your response to having a Black president is an absolute disrespectful disgrace and the whole of Europe sees you for the red necks you are. Just because Trump says he isn't racist you all rush to believe him because you don't want it to be true. He talks about Obama like he is a centre forward for Real Madrid. Racist, entitled, bald, misogynistic, brain dead creep.

Trump. Give it up already, you pathetic excuse of a human being. You are a pathetic reprobate with little interest in the well being of others. YOU are the real loser. Your interest in becoming the next president will only shine light on your stupidity. Remember, you filed for bankruptcy TWICE! Are you going to bankrupt our country as well? Moron.

I don't care if he is racist, sexist, whatever, he needs to SHUTUP and do something decent with all of his cash since he's always bragging about it and laughing at people that have less. He's jealous because Obama is smarter then him u don't graduate Suma *** Laude if ur dumb!

Why does Trump think he's qualified to run this country? Because he built some hideous high-rise buildings in New York and plastered his name all over them? His money came from daddy so what does he know about hard work? This guy has bankrupted all of his companies and stiffed the board members. Why doesn't he produce his financial do***ents for his companies. Most New Yorkers, like myself, can't tolerate this guy.

You know the country is in trouble when the media and prez are running on a platform that people opposing them are racist. But its understandable, what else can they run on? Obamas like a school kid who didn't do his home work and now has to come up with a lame excuse. Um, its Bush's fault and those other guys running against me don't like me cause I'm black. Bush's dog ate my homework.
