CNN Guest Argues Trump’s ‘Drain the Swamp’ Rhetoric Is an Appeal to Racists

During an interview with CNN Tuesday, Southern Poverty Law Center senior editor Ryan Lenz claimed that president-elect Donald Trump‘s use of the term and hashtag “Drain the Swamp” was a dogwhistle intended as a subtle wink to white supremacists.

“Yesterday, Donald Trump released his 100-day plan on YouTube, and he announced some very thorough, specific things he was doing by executive action. And he referenced a phrase… he said he’s going to ‘drain the swamp,’” Lenz noted.
