While Greg Gutfeld, Jesse Waters, Dana Perino, and Kimberly Guilfoyle all appeared to defend Donald Trump's comments, Williams accused the president of engaging in racism.

After Greg Gutfeld made his point in defense of the president, Juan Williams fired back, saying, "I can't believe you didn't just explode from the spinning." "Just because you say you’re not racist doesn’t make it so," he continued.

"He finds it just very valuable politically," Juan Williams went on to say, explaining that Donald Trump uses racially charged language to "attack people of color in this country." Not stopping there, Williams said that Trump "finds political advantage and value in making whipping boys out of people of color."
