Trump Weighs in on 'White Oscars' Debate

"This doesn’t happen to be one of those years."

The debate on whether or not this year's Oscars adequately represented the black community has gone all the way up to the presidential candidates.

Speaking on Fox & Friends shortly after actress Stacey Dash, who exclaimed that channels like BET should  dismantled, Trump weighed in on the controversy, portraying it exactly as it should: a year that blacks just weren't represented and that's all. 

"I saw somebody on your show today say, 'Well, what do we do with BET?'" said The Donald, having called into the program. "The whites don't get any nominations, and I thought it was an amazing interview, actually. I've never even thought of it from that standpoint."

Trump continued: "I mean, I’ve watched over the years where African Americans have in fact received Academy Awards and have in fact been represented," Trump said. "And this is not one of those years, but over the years I’ve seen numerous black actors and African American actors receive awards and I think that’s great. This doesn’t happen to be one of those years… It's a difficult situation."
