Jeh Johnson: There is still 'a large strand of America that is racist'


Former Secretary of Homeland Security in the Obama administration, tells Andrea Mitchell that he disagrees with the way that Senator Tim Scott assessed the United States as "not a racist country." "A lot of us would like to believe with the election of a Black president 12 years ago, we finally put aside our legacy, our racist legacy in this country. Unfortunately, there is still a strand, a large strand of America, that is racist, that is intolerant," he says.
