On Monday, Sunny Hostin from “The View” claimed that former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen “sold her soul,” and that the real threat to our country was “homegrown white supremacists.”
ABC’s “The View” kicked off with a segment about the resignation of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and the ongoing conversation about the crisis at the southern border.
“I believe she sold her soul,” Hostin said of the departing secretary. “She became the face of separating babies from their parents. It’s going to take two years to find out the true extent of this horror. Thousands were separated from their families.”
Hostin didn’t stop there. She went on and suggested that the situation at our southern border, despite reports that illegal immigrants have been pouring into our country in record numbers, was not even worth mentioning when compared to the problems posed by “homegrown white supremacists.”
“FBI director Christopher Wray testified that homegrown white is supremacists are the worst threat to our country. President Trump keeps saying these people from Mexico, from Nicaragua, are the biggest threats,” she said. “They’re not. It’s our homegrown white supremacists.”
According to CNN, what Wray said was that the threat of white supremacy, along with other extremist views in America, was a “persistent, pervasive threat.”
“The danger. I think, of white supremacists, violent extremism or another kind of extremism is of course significant,” Wray said last week during a Congressional hearing. “We assess that it is a persistent, pervasive threat.”
