The Libertarian candidate for president, Gary Johnson, said on Sunday Donald Trump's recent comments were "clearly" racist, a day after the presumptive Republican nominee faced accusations of antisemitism and in the same week that he said he would consider firing government employees who wear hijabs.

"He has said 100 things that would disqualify anyone else from running for president but it doesn't seem to affect him," Johnson told CNN's State of the Union. "The stuff he's saying is just incendiary. It's racist."

Earlier this week, a New Hampshire woman asked Trump at one of his rallies whether, as president, he would replace Transportation Security Administration workers who wear "heebeejabbies" – apparently a reference to Muslim headscarves called hijabs.
