New poll: 83% of African Americans say Trump is a racist
A new Washington Post-Ipsos poll finds that 83% of African Americans across the country believe President Trump is a racist and he's exacerbated the country's race problems while in office.
The big picture: African Americans are optimistic about their own personal lives, but are worried about their communities as a whole, the Post writes. Many said they hope to limit Trump's presidency to one term.
The poll's findings:
- 65% of African Americans said it a "bad time" to be a black person in America while 77% said it's a "good time" to be a white person.
- 9 out of 10 disapprove of Trump's overall job performance.
