During an interview on MSNBC’s “Unhinged” Friday, Rice offered a scathing review of the Trump administration as she described it as “racist to its core.” She also suggested that Trump’s Senate supporters belong should be in the “trash heap of history.”
With a timeline of racially charged incidents over the course of the last three and a half years, Rice noted the distinct difference in the description of Charlottesville protesters compared to those in support of Black Lives Matter, police brutality, and ending systemic racism against Black people.
Rice also criticized the president’s unwavering support of the Confederate legacy despite its history of disparaging the Black community.
“To serve an administration which has been racist to its core for the last three and a half years, from comparing the peaceful protesters at Charlottesville to white supremacists, calling white supremacists very fine people, all the way through to the recent weeks where the administration has disparaged the Black Lives Matter movement, disparaged the peaceful protesters, and basically made plain that they prefer to stand by a Confederate legacy than a modern America, it’s been an administration whose record on race is just disgraceful.”
“What we have seen in recent days, frankly, than what we have seen over the last three and a half years,” Rice said.

Rice also shared her thoughts on the upcoming election. While she is among the potential candidates for Biden’s Democratic vice president position, she explained the main objective of the election.
“This election, and whoever Joe Biden chooses among many very talented candidates, is about getting Joe Biden in the White House,” Rice said.
