Susan Rice says Trump ‘can’t stomach strong black women’
Former National Security Advisor joins the chorus of voices speaking out against The President's outlandish display of disrespect towards Yamiche Alcindor
Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice has had enough of President Trump attacking and berating PBS correspondent Yamiche Alcindor during daily White House briefings.
Rice took to Twitter to call Trump out on his belittling behavior and said she sees it for what it is – insecurity in the face of an intelligent and assured Black woman.
Rice retweeted a March 29 post from Alcindor following that day’s White House coronavirus media briefing: “President Trump today at the White House said to me: ‘Be nice. Don’t be threatening.’ I’m not the first human being, woman, black person or journalist to be told that while doing a job. My take: Be steady. Stay focused. Remember your purpose. And, always press forward,” Alcindor wrote.
Rice couldn’t agree more. “You go, girl,” President Obama’s security advisor tweeted back at Alcindor. “Pathetic when insecure men can’t stomach strong black women.”

“Trump is really telling us that he is afraid of Yamiche. He feels threatened by her,” responded Jess to Rice’s tweet.
In an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, Rice accused Trump of targeting “strong women.”
“Because he has a particular problem, it seems, with Black women. But I think as was pointed out in your earlier segment, it’s a problem that applies to women with strong personalities and a willingness to stand up for themselves and their beliefs across the board,” Rice told Mitchell.
When Fox News contacted The White House about what Rice tweeted they received no response.
