White supremacist Richard Spencer "deeply" regrets voting for Trump amid Iran crisis - 2020-01-08
Spencer was invited on CNN in July to discuss Trump's racist tweets targeting Democratic members of Congress of color, prompting widespread criticism that the network had given a platform to a "horrendous racist." On that occasion, he criticized Trump's words as insufficiently racist.
"Many white nationalists will eat up this red meat that Donald Trump is throwing out there. I am not one of them," Spencer told CNN. "I recognize the con game that is going on."
He later added, "He gives us nothing outside of racist tweets. And by racist tweets, I mean tweets that are meaningless and cheap and express the kind of sentiments you might hear from your drunk uncle while he's watching [Sean] Hannity."
