NEW YORK, July 30 — US President Donald Trump brushed off accusations of racism today as he refused to back down in his war of words with prominent black and minority left-leaning leaders. 

“I am the least racist person anywhere in the world,” he told reporters at the White House.

Over the past two weeks Trump has laid into four non-white progressive women with seats in the House, a respected black lawmaker representing Baltimore and a prominent civil rights activist.

His attacks have drawn criticism that Trump is stoking America’s racial divisions as he appeals to his white working-class base ahead of next year’s election. — AFP
