Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro says he’s hoping his campaign for president will prove Latinos aren’t scared by President Donald Trump’s racism.

Castro is the only Latino in the broad 2020 Democratic presidential field. In response to a question at an activist forum in San Francisco, Castro said Trump has exhibited “racism” toward Latinos. And, he says, “that’s one of the reasons I’ve determined in this campaign that we’re just going to be fearless.”

Castro says that when he’s in the first presidential debate in June, he hopes that Latino boys and Latina girls can watch and say that what the president has said isn’t true, “that we can do anything.”
