BETO O"ROURKE (PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE): The president has not been shy. and should be banned from the shores of this country. The only modern western democracy that I can think of that said anything close to this is the Third Reich, Nazi Germany.

Talking about human beings as though they are animals, making them subhuman, to make it okay to put their kids in cages. We've lost seven children in our custody just over the last year in this, the wealthiest, the most powerful country on the face of the planet. Saying that he wants more immigrants like those from Nordic countries, the whitest places on the face of the planet.

This president, his open racism is also an invitation to violence. We've seen a rise in hate crimes, every single one of the last three years. So Joe, you're absolutely right, the writing has been on the wall since his maiden speech coming down that escalator describing --


O'ROURKE: Mexican immigrants as rapists and criminals. The actions that follow cannot surprise us. And anyone who is surprised is part of this problem right now, including members of the media who ask 'Hey Beto do you think the president is racist?'

Well, Jesus Christ, of course he's racist. He's been racist from day one. Before day one, when he was questioning whether Barack Obama was born in the United States. He's trafficked in this stuff from the very beginning, and we are reaping right now what he has sown, and what his supporters in Congress have sown. We have to put a stop to it.
