CNN’s Don Lemon on Wednesday hammered President Donald Trump and senior members of his administration for “white mansplaining” with their denials about the existence of systemic racism in the United States.
The “CNN Tonight” host aired a montage of clips in which Trump and top officials dismissed questions about the issue.

He continued: “How can you solve this problem, this systemic racism that is killing people of color if you won’t even admit there’s a problem? First step is admitting there’s a problem. America knows which way the wind is blowing.
“Even NASCAR is banning Confederate flags right now.”
