During an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” with the freshly elected Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez Sunday, the executive order banning immigrants from several Muslim-majority countries was described as “ill-advised and frankly racist executive action against Muslims.”

Perez said, “We see no evidence, Chuck, of anything constructive from this president. Hours into his presidency he made it harder for first-time homebuyers to buy a home. A few days later he tried to make it harder for people to save for retirement. He nominates someone to head the Labor Department who wants to gut overtime pay. He is continually talking one way, but I judge people by their actions. Look at the ill-advised and frankly, racist executive action against Muslims. He has governed from the far right in everything he has done.”
