<p>[See <a href="…; for more.] Veteran ABC journalist Cokie Roberts on Sunday agreed with a Democratic strategist&rsquo;s smear that Donald Trump&rsquo;s &ldquo;America First&rdquo; mentality really means &ldquo;white America First.&rdquo; Appearing on a <em>This Week</em> panel, Jamal Simmons attacked, &ldquo;The thing about this all that is so concerning to me is that the President is undermining all these American institutions &mdash;&nbsp; he&#39;s going after the press, he&#39;s going after the judiciary.&rdquo; Simmons sneered, &ldquo;It&#39;s starting to make it seem a little bit, also, like &lsquo;America first&rsquo; is really &lsquo;white America first.&rsquo;&rdquo; Journalist Roberts agreed: &ldquo;But I think there&#39;s a lot of truth to that. And it&#39;s interesting because the President himself keeps undermining the possibility of anything seeming normal.&rdquo;</p>
