Donald Trump has made "racist statements," Marc Morial, chief executive of the National Urban League, told CNBC on Monday morning, ahead of Hillary Clinton and Trump's first presidential debate in prime time.
"I can't see into his heart, his soul, his mind, or his intentions," Morial said on "Squawk Box." "I do look at people's public actions. And I do think statements about building walls [and] targeting Muslims. Those things fall into the category of bigotry and racism."
Morial also said Trump's comments on challenges facing African-American communities have been "diagnostic" not "prescriptive."
In a rally last week in North Carolina, as protests over the fatal shooting of a black man in Charlotte were gearing up, Trump said, "You take a look at the inner cities, you get no education, you get no jobs, you get shot walking down the street."
"Places like Afghanistan are safer than some of our inner cities," Trump also said at last Tuesday's campaign event.
The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
