Top tier 2020 Democrat Elizabeth Warren and struggling candidate Beto O’Rourke have both concluded President Trump is a “white supremacist.”
Warren has been slightly more vague in her condemnation, saying Trump is “enabling” white supremacy and also “he’s done the wink and the nod.”
Donald Trump is enabling white supremacy—and Republicans are enabling him. And when Congress and the American people have tried to fight the gun violence epidemic, @SenateMajLdr has put the NRA first. If we want action, we need to take back the Senate and end the filibuster. pic.twitter.com/aFzwt5lNk7

Beto went a step further and in a MSNBC interview flat out told the interviewer he believes Trump is a “white supremacist.”
Democratic presidential candidates Beto O’Rourke and Sen. Elizabeth Warren both called President Trump a “white supremacist” in separate interviews on Wednesday.
Details: Warren told the New York Times Trump gave white supremacists aid and comfort. “He’s done the wink and a nod,” she said. “He has talked about white supremacists as fine people. He’s done everything he can to stir up racial conflict and hatred in this country.” O’Rourke told MSNBC Trump made it “very clear” that he’s a white supremacist.
