STUART VARNEY (HOST): Do you think that Donald Trump is a racist?
JESSE LEE PETERSON: Without a doubt, Donald Trump is not a racist. And it is interesting that Hillary Clinton, after 30 years of knowing Donald Trump, he has never been accused of being racist, and why is it now that he is running against Hillary Clinton that he is called racist?
VARNEY: Well, if you refuse to rent apartments to black folks way back when, in the early 1970s, that is evidence of a record of racism, isn't it?
PETERSON: No, it is not. You know, I have refused to rent apartments to certain black folks, in this country and I am not racist. I have to tell you Stuart, there is no such thing as racism. "Racism," or "racist," is a word that'd been made up by the race hustlers, like Hillary Clinton and others, in order to keep black Americans angry and keep them on the plantation of the Democratic Party. Hillary Clinton and the Democrats are desperate right now, because they know that a lot of black folks do not like Hillary Clinton. They liked Bill for a while, but they do not like Hillary. They don't trust her, so they'll use that word to manipulate black Americans in order to vote for Hillary.
