  • CNN anchor Don Lemon spoke about recent acts of violence in
    the US during an appearance on “Cuomo Primetime” Tuesday evening.
  • Lemon said the country has to “stop demonizing people and
    realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men.”

CNN anchor Don Lemon said that the biggest terrorist threat the
US is facing is “white men.”

While making an appearance on “Cuomo Primetime” on Tuesday
evening, Lemon and Chris Cuomo referred to recent acts of
violence in the United States.

Suspects in the recent acts of violence include
Gregory Alan Bush
, who is accused of killing two black people
at a Kentucky grocery store,
Cesar Sayoc
, who is accused of sending pipe bombs to people
and organizations who challenged President Donald Trump, and

Robert Bowers
, who is accused of shooting dead 11 people
inside a Pittsburgh synagogue after screaming “All Jews must
die.”

Bowers and Bush are white men, and Sayoc reportedly looked up to
white supremacists,
according to CNN
.

“We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror
threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to
the right, and we have to start doing something about them,”
Lemon said during the segment on Tuesday.

He added: “There is no travel ban on them … they had the Muslim
ban. There is no ‘white guy ban.’ So what do we do about that?”

Earlier in the clip, Lemon said he tries not to “demonize any one
group or any one ethnicity.”

“But we keep thinking that the biggest terror threat is something
else, some people who are marching, you know, towards the border,
like it’s imminent,” he said.
