“No, I’m not comfortable with that,” Hatch said in a CNN interview on Wednesday. “I don’t think words like that should be used especially by the president.”

The senator added that he believes Trump “should rise above that.”

While many saw racial undertones in the president’s description of Manigault-Newman, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders noted that Trump verbally attacks political foes of various races.
