During an interview on NBC's Third Hour, former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice quickly shut down the idea that race relations are worse today under Donald Trump than they have ever been.

Reporter Sheinelle Jones made the claim that people say race relations are worse today under President Trump than ever before, qhich Rice quickly dismantled, saying, "Look, it sure doesn’t feel worse than when I grew up in Jim Crow Alabama, okay? So let’s drop this notion that we’re worse race relations today than we were in the past."
