Manchin Reacts to Pelosi’s Racially Charged Immigration Comments: ‘We Don’t Need That Type of Rhetoric’


West Virginia's Sen. Joe Manchin (D.) criticized House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) after being shown a clip of her characterizing President Donald Trump's immigration plan as a way to "Make America White Again."

CNN's "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper used the Pelosi clip to start a discussion on immigration.

"Let me just say what I said last night: that plan is a campaign to make America white again," Pelosi said.

"You know what, we don't need that type of rhetoric on either side, from Nancy, Paul Ryan or anybody else," Manchin said.

Manchin proceeded to say that negotiations will depend on how comprehensive the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program fix will be.

"The president's laid out what he wants. That's a good starting point," Manchin said.

"But you condemned Nancy Pelosi's rhetoric," Tapper said.

"I'm condemning all of this crazy rhetoric that goes on," Manchin said.
