Trump is not racist towards Arabs or Muslims, claims Lebanese advisor
Lebanese academic Walid Phares, who is the foreign policy advisor to US presidential candidate Donald Trump, claimed Thursday Trump would surprise Arabs with a conciliatory speech to be delivered this week.
In an interview with the pan-Arab Al-Hayat newspaper, Phares said Trump "is certainly not a racist" and blamed his "lack of expertise in politics" for making comments that are interpreted as racist and fascist towards Arabs and Muslims.
"He is certainly not a racist and nothing on a personal level shows that he is," Phares said of Trump.
