White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said claims that President Donald Trump is racist are “outrageous,” citing his success as a public figure and his star turn on television as a host on NBC’s reality show “The Apprentice.”

“Frankly, if the critics of the president were who he said he was, why did NBC give him a show for a decade on TV?” Sanders said Tuesday.

Trump has been under fire after denigrating immigrants from Africa and Haiti in a meeting with lawmakers last week. The president defended himself on Sunday, telling reporters as he entered his West Palm Beach golf club that he was “the least racist person you have ever interviewed.”

Sanders was responding to Senator Chuck Schumer, the Senate Democratic leader, who said Monday on CBS’s “Late Show” that Trump could prove he was not a racist by signing legislation protecting from deportation undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. by their parents as minors. Democrats and Republicans have been in negotiations over what to do about a temporary Obama administration policy — Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA — since Trump moved to end the protections last year.
