Today on Midday, Tom and his guests discuss President Trump's controversial tweets targeting four minority Congresswomen and his subsequent comments about them. And they consider some of Mr. Trump's previous actions and policies, both as President and in his private career, that have defined him in many people's minds as a racist.  What do you think of the way the President’s view of people of color has been characterized in the media?
